Henry is a happy, smiley 5yr old boy who lives with his family in Caythorpe.

In 2019 Henry was diagnosed as having a high risk neuroblastoma, an aggressive childhood Cancer, which has a 40-50% chance of long term survival.

Over the last 12mths Henry has undergone various chemotherapy treatments, a stem cell transplant, 7hr surgery to remover the tumour and now immunotherapy. His strength & positive attitude throughout this battle, for a 5yr old boy, is remarkable and he is now known as ‘Henry the Brave’

The next big step in his treatment is to receive a clinical trial which is offered in New York. This aims to stop his neuroblastoma from coming back. In order for Henry to have this treatment, his family need to raise £202,000 by January 2021.

Many family members and friends are fundraising in different ways to help this trial become possible and this is where I’d like to offer my support.

I’ve just started to train for a half marathon which I’m doing on 27th Sept 2020. This will either be the Robin Hood or a personally planned one (Covid-19 will determine which!) Either way, I will run 13.1 miles on that date.

I’d love to try and raise as much money as possible to help Henry get to New York. Please help where you can, every penny really does count. Thank you ❤️
