Here is a picture of Charlie last month, a very normal little boy celebrating his 9th birthday, this was just days before his world was flipped upside down. Occasional sickness and dizziness resulted in doctors finding a rare heart condition and a large brain tumour to his brain stem. His parents were completely heartbroken. Charlie has since undergone 14 hour major brain surgery only to be informed that the surgeons were unable to remove the whole tumour. The family have been informed that the only way to help secure the next 5 years for Charlie is to go to America so he can start a course of Proton Beam Therapy. The family are due to be in America within the next few weeks and remain there for around 3 months, the treatment is being funded by the NHS but all other expenses must be covered by the family's own funds. This will be very costly, especially over the Christmas/Thanksgiving period. At the moment Charlie's future is uncertain and all we can do is try to make life slightly easier by removing some financial strain. The funds raised will go towards funding the expenses of living in the US and help to give Charlie a special Christmas whilst he's undergoing his treatment. If you could help put a smile back on this amazing little boys face then please give whatever you can.
