|Dear Nancy, is Jacksonville (Florida) near you? Sarah's best friends brother and his wife had a baby some two years ago, and then a year ago they found the baby (Jake), has a tumor in the brain!
As this tumour is cancerous the poor baby has had 14 operations so far, which at nearly 2 years old is not nice.
They cannot do the operation in the UK due they are told to lack of funds in the NHS by the Governments cuts, so have to go to America to the Ronald McDonald Foundation who can do it.
The tumor is just above his pituitary gland so he need specialist radiation as every time they take most of it out , it regrows.
Richard his father and Eve his mother have along with others have worked tirelessly to raise the money for this and have done it, even doing a naked run to raise money to save their first child.
They have to go for three months and Jake has to have two hours a day of radiation and laser treatment!
Even HMS Belfast the cruiser from world war 2 that fired a salute to the Queen has contributed a donation for this wonderful little boy!
They do not want any money as they and as usual the British public, friends and family have done it, they just want prayers!
He has Sarah's and mine plus our family, let us see if others can give him some help with theirs, whilst he is in America!
Neil & Sarah.
