Description

Jayden was born a seemingly healthy little boy on 27/04/2013 weighing a healthy 8lb 10oz in Liverpool to single mum Eleanor Donnelly and the much loved sibling to Rebecca Kay and Kayla ...Donnelly.

Jayden put on weight at a steady rate until he was about 3 and a half months old. When Jayden attended the health visitor clinic for his 2nd set of needles at 4 months it was noted that there had been a noted drop in his weight centiles.

Jayden

On the 23rd September after increasing reflux and weight loss his mummy concerned for the health of her baby boy sought medical help at Alder Hey Casualty Department.
Blood tests were performed and it was of note that his sodium level was very low and potassium level high.

Jayden was admitted to the High Dependency Unit at Alder Hey were further tests were carried out.

On 26/9/2013 an ultrasound and MRI scan were performed which showed a large irregular mass at the base of the bladder.

On the 30th September 2013 Jaydens mummy and eldest daughter were told the most devastating news a family should hear that their beloved son/brother at just 5 months old had advanced botryoid rhabdomyosarcoma of the bladder/prostate

Rhabdomyosarcoma is a rare and aggressive form of childhood cancer, affecting less than 60 children in the UK every year.

Rhabdomyosarcoma is highly resistant to chemotherapy, the survival rate is just two-thirds, a shocking statistic considering how few children are affected each year. There is also a high chance that children with botryoid strain will cause infertility in later life and in Jaydens case loss of his bladder. Please help us to change these facts.

Statement from Mummy

I have set up an appeal to raise funds in the event that my precious son needs treatment outside the UK, due to the rarity of this disease in this country little research has been carried out into this terrible disease and therefore it does not offer the best treatment for our children. A third of children in this country will not survive, shocking statistics when less than 60 are diagnosed each year. At this moment my son is in danger of being one of the negative statistics after his first lot of chemotherapy has not worked (in fact tumour has actually grown).

Please help my son to lead the life which is currently being denied to him whilst raising awareness of this terrible disease.

As with most childhood cancers the UK do not fund the best treatment for these children and our children are left to suffer as a result

I cannot and will not let my son and others suffer in silence due to lack of money and therefore research into this terrible disease. Please help us by raising awareness and show Britain we will not stand by and watch our children suffering. Our children deserve every chance in life. Please join our team and help us raise much
