Story

Within the last week my whole families life has been turned upside down when my gorgeous little nephew Sid was found to have a large cancerous tumour (ependymoma) surrounding his brain stem entrapping all of his facial nereves in the process. We as a family are so grateful to all of those at Arrowe Park and Alder Hey hospital for acting quickly and getting him into surgery just 2 days from diagnosis. The surgery was a success and the tumour was removed!

We are now looking at 8-10 weeks of intensive proton therapy treatment abroad which is the only option available to allow Sid to continue having a happy and healthy life side by side with his identical twin brother Mac. We do not know as of yet where Sid will be sent for treatment but we are told this will be happening within the next 3-4 weeks and he will be treated daily for the course. This treatment is imperative to Sids recovery and without it would have detrimental effects.

Proton therapy is our only option with the hope that Sid will be able to continue a happy and healthy life alongside his identical twin brother Mac. The treatemt is not yet available in the UK and we are still awaiting to hear where Sid will be sent for treatment as soon as he is fit enough to fly after undergoing 10 hours of intensive brain surgery just one week ago. This treatment is undoubtedly the best option for Sid and has a 70% survival rate for this condition alone in which we remain positive.

As a family, of course we are doing everything in our power to try and ease the financial strain for my sister Alex, Brother in law Simon, Sid and his identical twin brother Mac But I would like to appeal to anyone who may be able to help no matter how small the donation.

Whilst the NHS will fund for the treatment for Sid I I would love to be able to raise the money to pay for Sids identical twin brothers flight and help towards their living costs whilst abroad as of course they will endure massive loss of earnings throughout this horrendous time whilst also incurring alot of additional costs. My hope is that they will still be able to spend the summer together as a solid family unit whilst making the most of what is of course awful time in everyones lives.

I would love to be able to help ease their financial pressures during this time and hope that people will find it in their hearts to donate whatever they can to keep their family together for the summer and more importantly 2 identical twins that adore and miss eachother everyday that they are not together whilst Sid is in hospital.

We have no idea the costs that will be endured whilst away and also maintaining their family home and bills whilst not having the opportunity to work throughout the duration of Sids treatment. What I do know however is that every penny raised will help ease some of the pressure on my amazing family.

I thank you with all my heart for taking the time to read our story and of course I will be keeping you all informed of Sids road to recovery xoxo
