Weʼve raised £55 to support a dolla for Dawson by running or walking the Mansfield 10k
- Mansfield, United Kingdom
- Funded on Tuesday, 3rd October 2017
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
In January this year at 15 months old Dawson Willcock was diagnosed with a rare 0.9 in one million cancer, Hepatoblastoma. Since that day Dawson has tried several different Chemotherapy drugs, none of which are working. In April Dawson's family was told even whilst on chemo, the Cancer had spread to Dawson's lungs. There was a last chance Chemo to try, Dawson started this that day in April. On May 17th 2017, Dawson's family were told the heartbreaking news the chemo has had no effect, the lung tumours have increased in size and his Cancer is chemo resistant.
Dawson needs life saving treatment in America, which is going to cost £500,000. Dawson's family are in talks with a Doctor in Cincinnati, who has cured many children who were classed as terminal in the UK.
Proskins are supporting and raising money for a local boy who needs life saving treatment for a rare liver cancer. Dawson’s family have been a loyal customer of Proskins and their sister company, CF Sports since 2005 and so the team at Proskins want to raise awareness and money to help Dawson get the treatment he needs.
So what am I going to do?
On September 17th, I'll be taking part in the Mansfield 10K as one of many of the people that are supporting Proskins and want to raise money for this young boy to help get him the treatment he needs.
