    Story

    Monty is 11 years old and heading to secondary school in September. He was diagnosed with a life threatening allergy to peanuts at 2 years old, after having a severe reaction, when he tried peanut butter for the first time. He was rushed to hospital for emergency treatment and since then his parents have had to go to extreme measures to ensure that he is not exposed in any way to peanuts.

    As a result of his extreme allergy he has been given a chance to take part in a medical trial at Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge which is only available to 50 children worldwide. The trial involves 7 rounds of treatments over a 14 week period, each costing £2,250 and aims to de-sensitize Monty to peanuts enough to give him vital minutes extra to access life saving treatment.

    Monty is going to be at secondary school in September which brings a level of independence which he is excited about but also a reliance on people outside of his close family and friends to administer epi-pens etc correctly and in a timely manner. This is making Monty very anxious about making the move to big school, and generally going out and about alone as he gets older.

    Imagine not being able to go the cinema, or eat at the local fish a chip shop due to the risk of exposure to people eating nuts or cooking with nut oil. Having to think about your first kiss, due to concern for what she has eaten. This is a really scary time for Monty and his family as he grows and has new experiences. This treatment has the potential to save his life but also to give him a better quality of life in general due to the constant worry of what is in is surroundings.

    Monty's family are doing everything that they can to raise the money themselves however finding £15,750 in such a short period of time is difficult and they need a helping hand. This trial is a one time opportunity due to the availability on the trial and also Monty's age approaching the limit for what is most successful.

    We are so grateful for anyone who feels that they are able to contribute to the cost of the treatment. Thank you.
