Our Heroes

Theo is a 2-year-old boy like any other, but in March 2016 his family was told that he had only weeks or months to live as he had an ETANTR Brain Tumour which was attached to his brain stem.  

 

After the initial prognosis, and a very long week, the hospital confirmed that they had found a doctor that would be prepared to operate on the tumour.

 

Shortly afterwards, Theo underwent a 12-hour major brain operation which removed the tumour and he started chemotherapy on the 9th May 2016, but he now needs Proton Beam Therapy which is not available in the UK to kill off the remaining cancerous cells.  

 

The NHS are not prepared to fund this treatment, but Theo’s family are not taking NO for an answer and are raising the money to send Theo to the USA for the treatment, so this beautiful brave little boy has the best possible chance for a future.

 

If Theo's plight touches your heart, as much as ours, then please help Theo by making a donation.
