    Story

    Zachariah Oliver has been diagnosed with an extremely rare form of childhood leukaemia (Near Haploid) in May 2018, after 3 months of treatment his results based on standard UKALL2011 have not fared as good as it could have been.

    The UK panel of doctors have stated that Zac does not meet the criteria in the UK for the CAR-T trail and so we will have to wait for him to relapse before he is eligible. All research states that children with Zac,s diagnosis 'near haploid' with positive MRD will mostly die due to relapse. As I'm sure you can imagine this is not an option. We know he will most likely relapse because of his poor cytogenetics so why should we wait for his little body to become weak from all the toxic chemotherapy before offering what could be a life saving treatment.

    Hannah Zac's Mother started looking for another Avenue that would be more effective and give Zachariah the best chance of life. and some Clinical trials have come to fruition in America, (CAR-T) although it is still classed as experimental it has been used for 5 years now and has had really positive outcomes.

    We strive to get Zac the best possible treatment to give him the best chance of survival and a fighting chance for life, Zachariah is only 4 so he has a whole life to yet live.

    Philadelphia Children's hospital have already offered to help with the therapy and we are just waiting for the answer from Boston children's hospital too, while they have offered to help with some costs there are some costs they can not cover, (standard healthcare costs, living and travel costs also) this is not going to be an overnight fix it will be months if not years of treatment.

    Please help us and give him the best fighting chance.
