Theo Clennon

Our son Theo has recently been diagnosed with an aggressive brain tumour.

At first we were told the tumour was inoperable because of the tumour location on Theo’s brain stem which controls essential bodily functions, breathing, swallowing, walking, talking etc.

Theo was only given weeks, maybe months to live.

Another surgeon then came forward 6 days later who had looked at the Mri scans, he thought he could see a way In and hopefully remove the tumour, as the tumour was not actually on the brain stem but pushing against it.

It was a difficult and very delicate 11 hour operation but the tumour was successfully removed. Massive thank you to amazing neurosurgeon Dr Conor Mallucci and staff at Alder Hey hospital .

Theo's fight is far from over, he now has to undergo extensive high dose chemotherapy, stem cell transplants and radiotherapy.

Because of his age at 2 1/2 years traditional radiotherapy techniques would destroy Theo’s healthy brain tissue as well as the bad causing side effects.

Proton beam therapy is therefore the best route to take which targets only the affected part of Theo's brain, unfortunately proton beam therapy costs a heck of a lot of money and is currently not available in the UK. The NHS do send some patients to the USA to receive treatment but Theo does not fit their stringent qualifying criteria.

Please help us to raise £200,000 to get the treatment Theo urgently needs and deserves in the USA.

Thank you x
