Hello and thank you for stopping by.....
Our story so far:
In Feb 2017 our 12 week old son was diagnosed with a children's cancer called Neuroblastoma. This is the Second most common solid state tumour in childhood, affecting just under 100 children per year in the UK. This being said, Neuroblastoma has one of the lowest survival rates of all childhood cancers, with only 67 per cent of patients surviving to five years.
In our case, the tumour is in our son's neck affecting not only his neck and throat area but he has also developed 'Horner's Syndrome' which has resulted in his left eye changing. This has affected is eye size and also his iris colour which is lighter than his right eye.
Other children diagnosed with Neuroblastoma are: Bradley Lowery, (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-39883344), Son of Jean-Christophe Novelli (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3953320/Why-not-wish-change-places-Chef-Jean-Christophe-Novelli-tells-pain-10-week-old-son-s-cancer-battle.html), and even closer to home....Oscar Knox (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-northern-ireland-27337635). We can not express enough our deepest thoughts and prayers to other families having gone or going though this!
So what I plan to do...... I plan to raise some money (as much as I can) to give back to the charities and professionalism of staff whom have supported us though long days of Chemotherapy and sleepless nights in the hospital. A few to mention are: Children's Cancer Unit Charity, Children's Cancer Fund for Children, Clic Sargent NI.
MY MISSION..... is to ascend ALL FIVE of the highest peaks in the British Isles and Ireland and hopefully within 1 week! (weather and logistics dependant) This will be done in May/June 2018 and I hope to maintain a log on my Instagram account including training! @p_i_mcintosh
I would like to thank you in advance for your generosity l and please note I may not get around to thinking you all individually. Please to get in touch... xx
