Team story

[p]Hi and thanks for visiting my page.....[/p][p]Rich and Helen's son Iwan, was diagnosed with leukaemia in September 2009 when he was just 10 years old. Since then he has been on a roller coaster of a ride, through [lt]span class="text_exposed_show"[gt]endless rounds of treatment to try and beat this terrible disease including [b]TWO[/b] bone marrow transplants!![lt]/span[gt][/p][p][lt]span class="text_exposed_show"[gt][lt]br /[gt]6years on and sadly none of these treatments have provided Iwan with a cure, and it seems the NHS are unable to offer any other avenue.... hope now rests on getting Iwan to America for a new treatment not yet available in the UK that offers him a real chance of a full cure.[lt]/span[gt][/p][p][lt]span class="text_exposed_show"[gt][lt]br /[gt]The treatment is called CAR T-Cell therapy and in totel we need to raise £200,000 in order to fund this at the Seattle Childrens Hospital.[lt]br /[gt][lt]/span[gt][/p][p][lt]span class="text_exposed_show"[gt]In order to do what I can, I've offered to do a sponsored Sky dive to try and help Helen, Rich, Sam and most importantly Iwan get to the states...[lt]/span[gt][/p][p][lt]span class="text_exposed_show"[gt]Now, those that know me well, will know I'm not a huge fan of heights and the thought of chucking myself out of a plane doesnt exactly thrill me - that said if I can muster up just a small percentage of the courage this young lad has shown then I know I'll be fine...[lt]/span[gt][/p][p][lt]span class="text_exposed_show"[gt][i][b]I ask you no matter how big or small to please help with a donation.....every single penny will count.....we truly need your help![/b][/i][lt]br /[gt][lt]br /[gt][lt]br /[gt]*******[lt]br /[gt]A donation to this appeal page will be held by Ben’s Heroes Trust for the sole use of accessing this treatment and for quality of life whilst accessing the treatment. Should Iwan no longer need the money raised, or donations exceed the target then the funds will be donated to the general fund of Ben’s Heroes Trust to help other children with cancer.[lt]/span[gt][/p]
