“I am only one,
But still I am one.
I cannot do everything,
But still I can do something;
And because I cannot do everything,
I will not refuse to do the something that I can do.”
Jacob is from South Wales, below is his story:
"Jacob was diagnosed just before Christmas 2017 with Neuroblastoma, needless to say we are all so sad and scared just thinking about the journey our little Jacob has ahead of him. We know it's going to be tough, but so is Jacob, our strong little man has plenty of FIGHT! And we will be at his side all the way.
Very quickly we are learning how difficult Neuroblastoma is to treat, some treatments available are experimental and not available on the NHS, which is why we have decided to start fundraising, like any parent we want the best for our children, and if the best option isn't available on the NHS for Jacob, we want to be prepared. So we are here to ask for your help. Please support us. ♥ xx
We have set up a Just Giving Crowd Fund and if you could spare just a little, we would be so grateful. xx Here is the link.... "
Below is the link to Jacob's Facebook page if you would like to offer moral support and follow his story.
“Childhood Cancer is something we have all heard in the news or read in magazines, but you never expect it to happen to one of your loved ones in your family, especially at such a young age! Our whole world fell apart when we got told our beautiful Ivy- Louise had Neuroblastoma Cancer at just the age of only 14 months. Just imagine how much our whole lives have come crashing down.”
Little Ivy had various scans which resulted in her being diagnosed with a 6cm cancerous tumour above her adrenal gland. Doctors hoped they had caught the cancer in time before it had spread. However, on Friday 12th January (2018) her parents were told the devastating news that the cancer had spread all over her body. It was even in her bones.
Ivy started her chemotherapy treatment on the 12th January. She has been given a 50% survival rate and her parents, Kerri-lee & Jamie, are taking each day as it comes.
At left are the links to Ivy-louise’s Twitter and Facebook pages, and also the JustGiving page which, as with all the children, has been started in the hope of raising money so that little Ivy can go to America for a vaccine trial which is proven beneficial to preventing relapse in children with Neuroblastoma.
