Thanks for visiting Team Rory’s Fund - our team fundraising page, raising money for CLIC Sargent. This is an umbrella page for individuals who wish to do their own fundraising in Rory’s name. If you’re feeling generous and want to make a donation you can do so here .

At four and half months old, Rory was diagnosed with a brain tumour called medulloblastoma, an aggressive type of high grade cancer rarely seen in children of his age. He underwent major brain stem surgery to biopsy and partially resect the tumour and then began an intensive and gruelling chemotherapy regime with the aim of fighting the remaining cancerous tissue in his brain.

Our hearts are so very broken to share that Rory's second round of chemotherapy went horribly wrong and he was admitted to PICU on Christmas Day 2019. Because of the intensity of his chemotherapy regime, Rory had contracted veno-occlusive disease (VOD) and consequently suffered from multiple organ failure. Our little warrior spent a brave two and a half weeks fighting for his life, but passed peacefully away on Saturday 11th January.

CLIC Sargent have been present since the very beginning of Rory’s diagnosis and continue to help us find our way through the process as parents, including sourcing grant funding to make up for lost earnings and providing nursing care at home to reduce trips to hospital. They also help to cover unexpected funeral costs and provide the most incredible pastoral care to grieving families. Their support and guidance is making Rory’s diagnosis, hospital journey and death a far less lonely and terrifying experience.

Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. They'll make sure Gift Aid (an additional 25%) is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer, too. That means more money goes to the charity, faster, with Just Giving.
