Kids 'n' Cancer

We help kids get life-saving proton therapy to give every child a chance to beat cancer

Story

 

Hello,

This is the Just Giving page for our son, Alexander, who is currently fighting against a brain tumour 

We are making an urgent appeal in the hope of raising the funds to pay for his life saving proton treatment in America.

Our goal is to reach £255,000 in the next 2 weeks to cover the cost of treatment. We know it's a tall order but hope and pray that with your help, we can make this happen.

To find out more about Alexander's condition and the treatment he needs, please visit his website at www.alexandersfund.net  

What will happen if you exceed the £255,000 target? money that is raised past this point will go into the charitable account of Kids n Cancer UK and only be used for Alexander's medical costs. The £255K is to cover his proton treatment, but he is not eligible for health insurance so any further treatment that arises from possible complications will be covered by anything extra that you have donated. We can not tell you what that will be and hope that it does not come to that, but medical treatment in America is hugely expensive and it will be reassuring to Alexander's parents to know that they have the means to cover emergencies.

 

When Alexander is fit and well and no longer needs any form of treatment in America, what will happen to any left over money we have raised? With your permission we would like it to remain with Kids n Cancer UK to help other children in the same situation. Unfortunately this will happen again to someones child, sad but true.
