Team story

[p]Hi, thanks for visiting our page.[/p][p]Benjamin Crawford is ten years old, and like most ten year old boys he was extremely active playing all sports (with a special talent for football), riding his bike, walking his puppy and so on……..[/p][p]During the first week of September 2014, Benji was at football training when his right leg gave way. Benji went for X Rays where a suspected cyst was detected.[/p][p]Following a biopsy and further scans the worst was confirmed Benji has Osteosarcoma (Bone Cancer). A few days later he transferred to Birmingham’s Children’s hospital where the brave little man underwent a ten week course of chemotherapy. This was then followed by an operation to remove his knee and 3/4 of his femur, replaced with a prosthetic limb and then a further 9 months of chemo, which is now coming to the final stages and should finish mid October 2015.  [/p][p]Early signs are very positive and Benji has started to walk again.  He is due to have a further 2 operations, one of which is to lengthen his leg in November 2015.[/p][p]To support Benji and his family TEAM BENJI took part in a charity cycle ride from London to Paris during 1[sup]st[/sup]-3rd May 2015, all money raised is being split evenly between Birmingham Children’s Hospital and the charity “Children with Cancer”[/p][p]Since the cycle ride the amount of support and money raised has been amazing.  Team Benji is continuing to raise as much as possible through various events for the 2 charities and Benji's family have been at the heart of this.[/p][p]We urge you to sponsor TEAM BENJI, not only will your kind and generous donation help immensely but it will also give Benji and his family that special extra support knowing that you are on their side.[/p][p]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor us and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. We really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p]
