Freddie's Story

Freddie was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive cancer called Neuroblastoma. He has unfortunately been diagnosed as stage 4 high risk. This means Freddie has a 35% chance of survival. With the nature of his cancer over half of those children will relapse if they ever get to remission. If this ever happens there is a 1 in 10 chance of survival.

As promising as new treatments are in the UK, it only increases chances slightly and children are still relapsing from this cruel disease. Through the advancements of American research (which are 20 years ahead of the UK), there are increasingly positive signs that a vaccine has been invented which is giving children a lot higher chance of becoming cured from this awful cancer! The Bivalant vaccines have benefited a large number of children in the UK which wouldn’t have any other options if they faced another relapse on the NHS.

The cost to potentially save our child’s life is huge, so please help us get Freddie this medication that he needs, so he can grow up to be a happy, smiley little boy again!

First Prize – 1974 Ford 3000 Tractor

Approx. value: £3500

Kindly donated by David Hymas, this Ford 3000 was originally bought brand new in 1974. This great little tractor has worked on the family farm, by three generations of family, and has previously been shown at local tractor rallies and shows, it is in good working condition (as shown in photos). Despite holding great sentimental value for David, as his grandfather and father are now deceased, he has decided to donate the tractor to the raffle, as he believes that we need to support #freddiesfight and nurture Freddie’s future life rather than trying to preserve the past with memories in materialistic items.
