Who you're helping
For just £1 a ticket you can help fund visionary research into kinder and safer treatments for children like Blake…
Blake was just three years old when he was diagnosed with Stage 3 Medulloblastoma – a very fast-growing brain tumour. By the time the doctors had discovered the tumour, it had spread down his entire spine. I was absolutely heartbroken.
After the first four days of his treatment we noticed he wasn’t moving his legs. The toxic chemotherapy had left my little boy paralysed from the chest down. Six weeks of intensive radiotherapy to his brain and spine followed. We were repeatedly told that the treatments could kill him but his persistence and zest for life shone through.
At such a young age Blake has already coped with so much, but as he gets older the side-effects of his treatments are becoming more apparent. The radiotherapy caused damage to his brain and so he struggles with short-term memory loss. Physically he finds it difficult to do small tasks and often needs assistance. But Blake is a true hero and is learning to make the most of life with his disabilities.
By playing Children with Cancer UK’s Spring Grand Draw, you can help fund vital research projects to help find less-harmful treatments for children like Blake. Thank you and best of luck in the draw.
