Harry is a ten-year-old bubbly, smiley and adorable boy. Late 2014 his family was given the devastating news that Harry had Stage 4 Neuroblastoma a very rare and aggressive children’s cancer. After bravely enduring two years of continuous investigations, major surgery, high dose chemotherapy, radiotherapy, immunotherapy and more, Harry had two and a half years in remission and rung the bell to mark the end of his treatment, although he would continue to be monitored.
Devastatingly, once again our world has been turned upside down. In November 2018 we were given the distressing news that he had a neuroblastoma relapse to the CNS (central nervous system) and had to have an emergency operation to remove a tumour from his brain. Neuroblastoma has one of the lowest survival rates of all childhood cancers, and a CNS relapse is so rare – it’s the worst. Harry desperately needs your help in any way you can.
‘Mad About Harry’ was set up in 2014 to raise funds for Harry in the event he would need a ground-breaking trial abroad. If the fund was not going to be needed then once he was no longer at risk, the fund would be donated to help other children suffering from this horrible condition. ‘Mad About Harry’ now aims to raise £500,000 for a ground-breaking trial at Memorial Sloane Kettering in New York or Barcelona. The NHS has been fabulous with the care and treatment they have been able to provide for Harry so far, but he is now in unknown NHS waters. This privately funded treatment is his only lifeline. Please help us raise £500,000 by March by clicking HERE. Every donation is much appreciated no matter how big or small.
A HUGE thank you from all Harry’s family and friends who really really don’t want a world where children go through the journey that Harry is treading, it means so much to us and to them.
