Kingfisher Flock’s Christmas Bonanza!

Socially distanced Christmas entertainment, games and activities, and meeting Santa!

Bringing together the Esland community homes all in aid of Ollie!

Ollie celebrated his 3rd birthday in February this year. He is a happy and cheeky chilled out boy who loves fire engines, cars, planes and especially trains. He’s a big fan of PJ Mask, Paw Patrol, Buzz Lightyear and Fireman Sam and is known for giving out high fives!

Just before his 2nd birthday little Ollie was diagnosed with high-risk neuroblastoma. Since then he has undergone invasive and intensive treatment, including lots of rounds of chemotherapy, high-dose chemotherapy, 12 hours of surgery, stem cell harvest, radiotherapy and numerous side effects from these treatments. He has endured so many blood transfusions, platelet transfusions, painkillers, antibiotics and so much more.  Throughout all of the treatment, Ollie continued to smile and be happy to play with his toys. His scans showed that he was no evidence of disease (NED) at the end of treatment and throughout immunotherapy which finished in April 2020. 

In July 2020 Ollie became ill and the family were given the devastating news that Ollie had relapsed. Following treatment to Ollie’s relapse neuroblastoma, Ollie is now NED again.

Ollie’s mum and dad, Lucy and Gary, are determined to do everything they can to give him the best possible chance of beating this awful disease. They are looking to raise at least £241,000 so Ollie can receive a clinical trial vaccine in New York that aims to keep the cancer from coming back.
