‘ Jacob needs our help. This charismatic little boy was diagnosed with high risk stage 4 Neuroblastoma a few weeks before his 3rd birthday. What was believed to be a stomach virus, turned out to be a 7inch abdominal tumour and a rare form of cancer which has spread to his liver and bones.

If this is not a challenge enough, the pandemic has meant a lot of the support services have been suspended. There has been very little support due Jacob’s immunosuppression and the risks of Covid. Jacob has been in isolation and hasn’t played with other children since his diagnosis in June 2020. Amongst all of this, the family have also had to welcome Jacob’s little sister a few weeks after Jacobs diagnosis.’ Sadia Mirza
