The Charlie Hook Appeal

Team photo
Cash for Kids are proud to be helping the appeal of a wonderful little boy – Charlie! Charlie is suffering from an aggressive form of childhood cancer. Charlie is receiving intensive treatment, however should it not work, or should Charlie relapse the only option is for Charlie to travel to America for treatment. This will cost £300,000. Please read on to hear from Charlie’s Mum Nicola and to see how you can help Charlie’s Appeal: "On the 10th January 2011, on his 5th birthday, my beautiful son Charlie was diagnosed with high risk, stage 4 Neuroblastoma. An aggressive and difficult to treat childhood cancer. I can not describe the shock and shear devastation. He has had to endure months of intensive and invasive tests, chemotherapy, surgery and will shortly begin radiotherapy and immunotherapy. I am literally watching my once lively, happy, cheeky and outgoing baby go through hell and back in hope that he gets better. This is a living nightmare. Charlie is a fighter and tries so hard to keep a smile on his face because he knows this will make his mummy smile too. He has so far responded well to treatment but there is a very high relapse rate. The UK has no relapse protocol. In this event, I refuse to be told there is nothing more that can be done, I simply will not accept this. Its my job as his mummy to go to the ends of the earth and back to save him. Unfortunately this comes at a price, a 6 figure price for treatment abroad. Charlie needs to be able to have instant access to money to pay for treatment that the UK cannot offer. It is impossible to predict if, how, or where Charlie could relapse, but the fact is that he does stand a terribly high chance of suffering some sort of relapse within the next 5 years, with most relapsing within the first 2 years. Treatments range in price from around £150,000, though should Charlie relapse in the brain, something that is happening more and more, we would need to be ready with a deposit of around £300,000 for live saving treatment in America. If everyone we met, or who heard of Charlie, donated just £1 we would be able to raise the money in no time. Thanking you all to the moon and back."
