    Story

    Oscar was diagnosed with neuroblastoma in July 2016. He has been undergoing treatment ever since. In January 2018 his parents were told that he had relapsed. They are now faced with the daunting task of raising enough money to take him abroad for treatment. This amazing little boy and his wonderful family have been through so much and I am proud to know them.

    Page will be updated by Lucy - Oscar’s mum with full treatments already completed and those coming up shortly...

    Up until the age of one Oscar was a happy healthy baby. When he turned one he started to become poorly. After a few months and several trips to the GP Oscar was diagnosed with stage 4 Neuroblastoma.

    We immediately began treatment which was a very intensive 18 month plan of chemotherapy, surgery, stem cell recovery, radiotherapy and finally immunotherapy.

    Despite everyone being hopeful as Oscar was so well at the end of treatment his scans showed a change in his disease and his doctors suspected relapse. In February this year it was confirmed by biopsy.

    Oscar started treatment on the Beacon Trial at Manchester Children's Hospital but unfortunately we found out at the end of April that he was not responding to the treatment.

    There is currently no protocol for relapsed neuroblastoma. Treatments are available in clinical trials.

    We are currently looking to enlist Oscar on a CART cell trial at GOSH, however should this fall through or should further treatment be required after (very likely) we will probably have to consider treatment options abroad which could run into hundreds of thousands of pounds.

    Oscar is a very happy child, a big brother to his twin brother and sister who he loves spending time with when home. He enjoys Peppa, paw patrol and popping bubbles. We just want to give him the best chance to be able to grow up and beat this horrible disease that we have seen far too many gorgeous children lost to.

      We are in the process of setting up our treatment journey with a children's cancer charity and the link will be provided in the next couple of weeks. All money received will be held by the charity and will be for Oscar's treatment however should it not be needed for Oscar then it will go to funding other children's treatment. Please continue to follow Team Oscar Bear on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Thank you all. Xx
