Team story

[p]Last July my two year old,Joel,was diagnosed with a very rare childhood cancer AT/RT which caused tumours to grow against his spine,stopping the use of his legs.He went through one ordeal after another to have the tumours removed,then radio and chemotherapy,and all the inherent side-effects that these cause.[/p][p]       Sadly,for his parents,older brother and other family members,none of this made any difference and after long months of hoping and praying, Joel passed away in January.[/p][p]       I watched my beautiful,brave little nephew fight this devastating disease with such dignity for a two year old.It was amazing to watch him be so positive,no matter what treatment he was having to suffer, and so humbling it made you want to cry when he was the one telling you not to be sad.[/p][p]        He was such a special little boy in so many ways and it's heartbreaking to know so many families will have to go through this pain of loss until we find a cure. The sooner we can stop this horror from touching everyone's lives in some way the better,and then little children,like Joel,won't have suffered for nothing.[/p][p]       So, myself and my girlfriends and family will be walking the Twilight Colourthon on July 4th to raise money for research into this particular cancer.Please,find a way to  help if you can,we'd be very grateful.[/p][p]                         Thankyou[/p][p][hr/][/p]
