Hi all,
please read an excerpt from Alfie's story, this devastating news was given to his parents on the 12th July. The great news is that Alfie has had successful surgery to remove the tumour and is moving forward with his recovery. We want to help whole family and will be walking the Clarendon Way (26 miles) in one day. Really hope you will give generously.

Mark & Peter

Yesterday we received the devastating news that Alfie’s latest MRI shows that unfortunately he has a brain tumour and therefore relapsed again.

These are the words we pray we will never hear again and whilst we always try to be positive we know this is the harsh reality of the reoccurrence of an Ependymoma brain tumour.

We have been told it’s a similar size to when he last relapsed in October 2015 and almost in the same place. Thankfully the Neuro surgeons feel the location and size will make it possible to attempt to remove it.

It’s a really tough blow especially after we have had 2.5 years of watching him grow and loving him unconditionally everyday, he has achieved so many milestones we didn’t ever think he would hit in this amount of time and we couldn’t be prouder.

It was a very hard day yesterday as we found out this news just before we took Alfie into school for his final settling in session at school before September. Having to put on a brave face in front of new parents as they talked about play dates over the summer holidays with his new class buddies was so hard and I couldn’t tell them what was about to happen to him.

We don’t know what the future holds for our little man but as always we will aim to look forward, stay positive and pray for another successful surgery and speedy recovery.

Please send your positive vibes to our little fighter, we know he will smash is it again and we as a family will be with him every step of the way.

      Wish you both well, a little concerned after Cowes.
