Weʼve raised £290 to Make Kyle Smile and Clic Sargent.
- Funded on Saturday, 3rd June 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 nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
In January 2014 Kyle Buckley a Year 6 pupil from Saint Bedes school in Bolton was diagnosed with a rare muscle tissue cancer called Rhabdomyosarcoma. During intensive treatment, a drug had an adverse effect on Kyle and he became deaf in July 2014. Giving it his all, he fought hard but Kyle unfortunately relapsed in May 2015. Kyle underwent a course of chemotherapy and twenty five session of radiotherapy and was given the all clear in December 2015. In March of this year, Kyle had his three month routine scan which showed the cancer had returned. Kyle is once again starting treatment to keep the cancer at bay until a trial becomes available and is offered.
Throughout his illness, Kyle has remained so positive and has a constant smile on his face. Kyle’s mum, Carol also lost her husband to bowel cancer when Kyle was only 9 months old. There are some options open to Kyle which involve him travelling to America for treatment. As you can imagine, this is an expensive option, but one that we feel is extremely important.
Also half the money raised will be going to the charity Clic Sargent.
When cancer strikes young lives CLIC Sargent helps families limit the damage cancer causes beyond their health.
Cancer doesn’t discriminate. Today, 11 more children and young people will hear the devastating news that they have cancer. From diagnosis, CLIC Sargent’s specialist care teams will step in, ready to help, support and guide. They will provide a specialist package of support tailored to each young cancer patient and family.
CLIC Sargent fights tirelessly for children and young people with cancer, often when they feel they can’t. We do this individually, locally and nationally, so that they can focus on the important things, like getting well. And if the worst happens, we will work with bereaved families to get them support, to help them cope with their emotional pain.
