Story

Oliver Stephenson is a 4 year old boy living in Ackworth with his mum Laura, dad James and brother Alfie who is 2. On the 16th January following blood tests Oliver was diagnosed as having Neuroblastoma a childhood cancer. He has a tumour on his kidney and the cancer had spread to his bone marrow, skull and eye sockets. Oliver began chemotherapy on Saturday 18th January at the fantastic LGI where he is receiving round the clock care from doctors, nurses and various different charities on the ward. Oliver has a long road ahead of him along with his mum, dad and little Alfie. They have amazing support and offers of help from family and friends which they very much appreciate.

When I first asked about setting up this page they didn’t feel that it was necessary as at the moment they are managing fine with their finances but on reflection have agreed to this page being set up to raise funds for if they need it down the line to cover living expenses and travel costs etc or god forbid if Oliver needed further none NHS treatment. This is now unfortunately extremely likely and hence why the target has been raised for treatment that he is likely to need in America called the Bivalent Vaccine once he has received all the treatment that he needs from the NHS. It is too early in Oliver's current treatment plan to sign up for this due to Oliver still receiving chemotherapy but due to the colossal amount needed we are giving ourselves the most time to raise the money for when it will likely be needed. Laura and James also realise that people want to help in any way they can and this is one way of doing that.
Any money raised that isn't needed for Oliver's care they would like to donate to another family in a similar position to them that do need it or to the various charities that will help them along the way.

Please give whatever you can afford as I’m sure this money will be put towards making people’s lives just a little easier.

    Wow! I set this page up 4 weeks ago and we reached 10% of our target yesterday, £23,000! We are very nearly at £24,000 today too! Oliver is doing really well! He has just finished round 4 of his chemotherapy and is now home to spend a few days with his family before returning for round 5. Monday will be a big day as he will have a scan to assess the progress of his treatment so far, I'm sure you will all have him in your thoughts! He goes through all of this with a smile on his face! He's a superstar! Please share and donate if you can!

    When I set up this page 3 weeks ago today little did I know that we would be at £9000 today! I’m totally humbled and gobsmacked at peoples generosity, even complete strangers. The outpouring of love and support for the family has been astonishing and has even put smiles on their faces through this horrific time in their lives! £1000 to go to the current target, we can do that! It is looking ever more likely that we will need a significant amount to get this absolute super hero the treatment that he needs to cure him of this horrible disease!

    Oliver has now completed round 2 of his chemotherapy and is having a few quality days at home with his family. He is well in himself at the minute which is great news. Today is day 16 out of 70 of this first round of treatment. Oliver and his little brother have had their hair shaved off this weekend so that it is less traumatising when his hair inevitably falls out - I must say it really suits both of them! £7260 in the fund which is absolutely amazing so thank you to each and every one of you that has contributed to this or shared the page!
