Harry Banks is a ten-year-old bubbly, smiley, very cheeky, but completely adorable boy. In 2014 we were given the devastating news that Harry had Stage 4 Neuroblastoma, a very rare and aggressive children’s cancer. After bravely enduring two years of intensive chemotherapy, continuous investigations, major surgery, high dose chemotherapy, radiotherapy, immunotherapy and more, Harry had two and a half years in remission, and rung the bell to mark the end of his treatment, although we knew it would be a long road to recovery and he would continue to be monitored. Devastatingly, once again our world has been turned upside down – in November 2018 we were given the distressing news that Harry had a neuroblastoma relapse to the CNS (Central Nervous System) and he had to have an emergency operation to remove a tumour from his brain. Neuroblastoma has one of the lowest survival rates of all childhood cancers, and a CNS relapse is so rare – it’s the worst.
Harry desperately needs your help. Mad About Harry aims to raise the £500,000 Harry needs for a ground-breaking trial at MSK in New York or in Barcelona. The NHS has been fabulous with the care and treatment they have been able to provide for Harry so far but he is now in unknown NHS waters and this privately funded treatment is the only lifeline available. Please help us raise £500,000 by March in any way you can, thank you for your help it means so much to us x
Please help make a difference to Harry’s tomorrow
