Harry and I will be participating in the Jersey Hospice & National Trust 30 Bays in 30 Days fundraising event this July. We have made a donation to these charities in lieu of our fundraising, which this year we would like to go to Peter. The challenge involves swimming 30 stokes in 30 Jersey Bays across 30 days. Find out more about Peter’s story below. ❤️❤️❤️ #TeamPeter

Peter was first diagnosed with Intermediate Risk Neuroblastoma in January 2019. His tumour caused a spinal cord injury which left him with no movement or sensation in his lower body. He successfully completed his cancer treatment in February 2020 and more than two years since his spinal cord injury he has grown in strength and independence as a full-time wheelchair user.
Unfortunately in August 2020, Peter's cancer relapsed, this time as metastatic High Risk Neuroblastoma. Relapsed Neuroblastoma is complicated and hard to treat and, even if remission is achieved, there is a high risk of further relapse. Peter's treatment so far has cleared his bone marrow but only kept the rest of his disease stable. While there are still options ahead, many of the treatment and maintenance trials available are not based in the UK and further treatment for Peter could include a clinical trial in America or Spain.
We are now fundraising for further treatment not available on the NHS either to get Peter back into remission or to try and keep the cancer away if his current treatment goes to plan. This could cost hundreds of thousands of pounds. Marianne Sargent
