Weʼre raising £1,000 to help Zac and his family pay for great days out, adjustments to their home and equipment like a wheelchair.

As most of you already know my nephew Zac was diagnosed with Near Haploid Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia in May this year. It's a very rare and agressive form of leukemia. His mum Hannah his with him 24 hours a day keeping him happy and administering a phenomenal amount of medication throughout the day and night. He has chemotherapy, lumber punctures and bone marrow biopsies regularly, when he gets a temperature he's admitted for several days at a time, they've fitted a line directly into his heart and a feeding tube up his nose. He can't swim, go to jungle land or generally mix with other children for fear of infection. To say that this is cruel is an understatement. I am hoping to raise as much money as possible to help Hannah, Zac and the rest of their family pay for the things that need paying for, a wheelchair for the future, making changes to their home to accommodate their new way of life, family days out that keep Zacs spirits up and allow them to have a couple of hours of normality. To follow Zacs journey find his page on face book "Zachariah's fight against Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia"
So in September I will be swimming the cut (canal) towing a canadian canoe with my family in it. Armed with a wetsuit snorkel and no sense ! i would love for you to come join me and my family and cheer us on , and make a proper day of it and help drag me out at the end .
Would just like to say we would appreciate any donation whatever the size .
Thanks for taking the time to read this , and hopefully see you there !! updates will be forthcoming as I need to start training or I'll be ran over by a barge .

About the fundraiser
I'm just a normal guy who thinks if you can help someone you should do it. It's great to see people coming together for a good cause.
