In January this year at 15 months old Dawson Willcock was diagnosed with a rare 0.9 in one million cancer, Hepatoblastoma. Since that day Dawson has tried several different Chemotherapy drugs, none of which are working. In April Dawson's family was told even whilst on chemo, the Cancer had spread to Dawson's lungs. There was a last chance Chemo to try, Dawson started this that day in April. On May 17th 2017, Dawson's family were told the heartbreaking news the chemo has had no effect, the lung tumours have increased in size and his Cancer is chemo resistant.
Dawson needs life saving treatment in America, which is going to cost £500,000. Dawson's family are in talks with a Doctor in Cincinnati, who has cured many children who were classed as terminal in the UK.
Proskins are supporting and raising money for a local boy who needs life saving treatment for a rare liver cancer. Dawson’s family have been a loyal customer of ours and our sister company, CF Sports since 2005 and so the team here at Proskins want to raise awareness and money to help Dawson get the treatment he needs.
So what are we going to do? We have teamed up with a local event to take part in a 5K and 10K run, in Dawson’s local area of Mansfield on September the 17th 2017. We have Proskins Director, Rugby Legend and the finalist of Channel 4’s The Jump - Jason Robinson running with us and 100 other places to join together to run (or walk) for Dawson. If you are interested in running with us please visit our website https://proskins.co/latest/proskins-race-for-dawson/
What can you do to help? If you can’t run with us you can always run remotely in your area and still raise money for Dawson. Or you can support Dawson’s campaign by taking a photo with the card supplied ; ‘I am supporting #ADOLLARFORDAWSON’ and post this across social media with the link to this page. So we need your help. We want to raise as much money as we can. So anything you can donate, big or small, will make a difference.
