    Story

    On 23/12/20 our baby boy, Zion, was diagnosed with cancer, neuroblastoma to be precise. Unfortunately Zions body is not coping well with treatment and his medical team are having to adjust his care plan. This beast unfortunately has a high chance of relapse and mortality and we dont want our boy to become one of those stats and so this is where you come in. As Zions mummy and daddy we want to do anything we can to support our boys treatment so we would love to access trials which are taking place in other parts of the world which are proving to enhance the treatment hes already receiving and to kick cancers butt!! This treatment however is at a premium rate as im sure you can imagine. We would love you to support is on this journey by either donating as big or as little as you feel led,, share our fundraising page or why not organise a fundraiser and get involved that way - we would love you to be involved in our boys journey to recovery!!!

      We have finally nailed a trial for Zion!!🥳 The trial Zion will take part in is now standard of care for a lot of cancer kids in USA & Canada and is what we’ve decided, with the help of the consultants, is the best option for Zion. We have 4 months of treatment to complete here in Belfast and then we will be off Stateside to begin a two year trial going back and forth to North Carolina along with our amazing continued support in the Royal Victoria Hospital Sick Childrens Hospital. We are so so grateful for each and every one of you💜🦖🦕

      Hi guys we just wanted to come on to wish you all a merry Christmas and let you know Zion has begun the final stage of treatment called immunotherapy. This will continue for 6months and then we will hopefully be heading off to trial. Again, a massive thank you to every one of you as we wouldn’t be able to get there without your love and generosity 🦕🦖💜🎅🏻🧑🏻‍🎄
