Stanley was six years old and living a happy life when he started suffering painful headaches in 2021. Heartbreakingly, doctors found the cause to be a brain tumour. After an operation which involved removing as much of the tumour as possible, Stanley seemed to be making progress. Then he had another devastating setback, with the cancer spreading to his spine.

Since then, he’s had more surgery but, sadly, a new brain tumour has developed. Whilst Stanley is still undergoing treatment, his cancer is no longer curable. But his doctors are doing everything they can to slow down the cancer and give him more precious time to continue to spend time with his family and enjoy the things he loves.   

No child should have to face cancer. By playing our Summer Grand Draw, you could help to fund vital research that will lead to safer and more effective treatments – and give children like Stanley more time with their family.

How your money helps

Who you’re helping

By playing our Summer Grand Draw , you can support our vital work to find kinder and better treatments for children like Stanley. Stanley’s Mum, Kirsty, shares their story below:

Before his diagnosis, Stanley was enjoying the life of a typical six year old. He adored his XBox and Lego and loved watching wrestling. But everything changed in September 2021. He began suffering with headaches, which turned out to be a brain tumour – a devastating diagnosis for Stanley and his family.

Leading up to this diagnosis, Stanley deteriorated fast and was rushed into hospital with a critical build-up of fluid on the brain. The fluid was drained and the next day he underwent a gruelling 14-hour surgery to remove a tumour. Sadly, the doctors could only safely remove part of it. After spending four long days in the high dependency unit, he was diagnosed with Posterior Fossa Group A (PFA) Ependymoma (WHO grade three) – a cancerous brain tumour.

Stanley’s tumour affected his ability to walk, talk, and swallow. Yet, he faced each obstacle with bravery and determination. He spent Christmas that year with a feeding tube inserted, then started chemotherapy in January, followed by seven weeks of proton beam therapy. At first, he seemed to be responding well, but he then suffered another setback in June – the cancer had spread to his spine.

Heartbreakingly, his treatment plan moved from curing his cancer to keeping him comfortable and giving him as much time as possible, with the hope of remission. Stanley’s consultant said, “We may never cure Stanley”, but they’re hopeful he has many years ahead of him.

No child deserves to have their future taken away from them. It’s never easy for families like Stanley’s to be having conversations about giving their child “more time” rather than talking about a cure. The residual brain tumour is not safe to remove, which meant it remained an ongoing threat to Stanley.

In January 2023, Stanley had spinal surgery but the doctors deemed it too risky to re-operate on his brain again. This is because the risks of radiation could cause strokes, damage to his senses and short-term memory loss. He surprised everyone by making a very speedy recovery from the operation. It was lovely having him at home in time for Christmas. Stanley has also started a new course of chemotherapy, and recently celebrated his ninth birthday.
