Story

I have been fortunate enough to receive a ballot place for The London Marathon 2018. This year I am hoping to raise a lot of money to support a young girl called Siobhan Mather.

On 1st July 2017, aged just 2, Siobhan became lethargic and was taken to her GP. After being referred to Barnet Hospital, it was discovered she had a tumour. She was transferred to Great Ormond Street where she was diagnosed with neuroblastoma, a rare child cancer.

Siobhan is in the early stages of her chemotherapy treatment at the amazing GOSH, but still has a long way to go! She is the bravest 2-year-old girl and is taking everything that this terrible disease can throw at her in her stride. High-risk neuroblastoma has a high chance of relapse; and relapsed neuroblastoma has low survival rates. Relapsed neuroblastoma is the most dangerous form of the disease. There is no standard relapse protocol for relapsed neuroblastoma, which means clinical trials are often the only hope for many children. Such clinical trials are rarely available via the NHS, so where families wish to access this treatment, their only option is abroad, in the hope of helping them beat cancer. In the USA, there have been a number of trials with high success rates. The cost for the course of treatment, as well as the associated costs of travelling abroad to access it are estimated in the region of £220,000.

Any amount, however small, will be gratefully recieved and very much appreciated.

Thank you

Una xxxx
