    Story

    Jasmine is a beautiful 4 year old girl who In August 2016 developed a tumour in her chest. Since then Jasmine has been under going treatment. Whenever Jasmine is well enough she attends her new school in Swinford where she has enjoyed making friends with everyone. It is looking increasingly likely that Jasmine will need a long course of proton beam therapy. Proton beam therapy is a type of radiation treatment that use protons rather than X- Rays to treat cancer. This treatment is not currently available in the UK, so Jasmine and her family may need to fly to Florida and stay there for up to 10 weeks. Although the course of treatment should be funded by the health service, Jasmine's parents will need to pay for their living and travel costs whilst they are away and, given that they will also be unable to work for a long period of time, this will make things very difficult for them financially. They will of course do whatever it takes to help Jasmine get the treatment she needs. So I am asking for some help in spreading this fund raising page to enable both of her parents and little sister to go with her and for them to be able to stay together whilst she undergoes this course of treatment. We are unsure as to how much we need so are trying to initially raise £10000. Please please share and if you can please please donate even if it's £1 as lots of £1's can make a huge difference. Thank you for taking the time to read Jasmine's story.
