The Campaign

Joseph is three and has spent months in hospital undergoing treatment for stage 4 high-risk neuroblastoma, a rare aggressive childhood cancer that has a 40-50% chance of long-term survival at diagnosis.

Joseph’s family are fundraising for further treatment, either to get their son into remission or to try and keep the cancer away if his frontline treatment does go to plan. This could cost hundreds of thousands of pounds.  All donations received will to go towards helping Joseph access further treatment.

Joseph’s frontline treatment finishes in June 2022 and his end of treatment scans will confirm whether he is in remission.  High-risk neuroblastoma has a 50% chance of relapse, the treatment for which is particularly challenging and survival rates drop to a horrific 5%. Joseph’s family are actively fundraising in order to be able to access every possible treatment option in the worst-case scenario or treatment to try and keep the cancer away if his frontline treatment does go to plan.

 We need to raise hundreds of thousands of pounds and we can’t do it alone. We desperately need your help. Every single penny helps, it really does.
