Just before Ollie's 2nd birthday he was diagnosed with high-risk neuroblastoms. Since then he has undergone invasive and intensive treatment, including lots of rounds of chemothreapy, 12 hours of surgery, stem cell harvest, radiotherapy and numerous side effects from these treatments. Ollie is now 3 and in July this year Ollie relapsed and his parents were given the devastating news that if the tumour continued to grow at the same rate then he wouldn't survive another 10 days.


Since then Ollie has beaten all the odds. He has had 2 rounds of chemo and the tumour had shrunk by half. His latest scans show no active disease.


Although Ollie is doing well, his parents Gary and Lucy still plan to access the vaccine trial in New York when Ollie gets into second remission. They are £60,000 away from the £241,000 needed for this to be possible.


I would like to raise as much money as possible to make sure that this option is available to them so I have decided to do a skydive in Cyprus, where I have been living for the last 3 years.
