All money raised will go to Alec's Angels.
Alec Jarvis was an exceptional child. Like so many he had a natural zest for life but Alec also had an extraordinary wisdom that allowed him to see the whole world around him as few adults can. in February 2010 Alec was diagnosed with an astrocytoma, which is a tumour in the brain stem. In spite of enduring intense examinations and treatment such as MRI, CT & CAT scans, biopsies, six weeks of radiotherapy and six months of chemotherapy, Alec always remained cheerful and more concerned about the other children that he came across with cancer than himself.
This selfless concern was so inspiring to those that met him that following his death Alec's father Brian set up Alec's Angels to raise funds in support of other children and families going the same agony of childhood cancer, The charity has two main aims;
The first, specifically requested by Alec, is to make the children suffering from cancer SMILE.
The second is to support the families who, as Alec's parents, Brian and Sara know all too well, find some smaller things in life impossible to manage when dealing with childhood cancer.
