We’re so pleased to announce that one of our very special young supporters, Oliver Swift, has ‘rung the bell’ to signal the end of his cancer treatment.
Little Oliver, who is now four, has been receiving treatment at Nottingham Children’s Hospital since he was five months old, when he was diagnosed with a brain tumour.
The tumour took up more than half the left-hand side of his brain, and Oliver has since undergone three operations, plus chemotherapy to further shrink the tumour.
Despite being given just a 2% chance of survival, Oliver has finally been able to ring the special bell on the children’s ward that marks the end of his treatment.
Last month, just weeks after Oliver’s treatment ended, Charlene took on our Big QMC Abseil, and Ashley took on the Robin Hood Half Marathon.
Ashley said: “We have been so thankful for the NHS over the last three years, and being able to raise funds is just one way we are able to say thank you. We have seen the impact that these funds make first hand with things like the improvement of equipment on the wards.”
“Ashley and Charlene have been the most dedicated and unwavering of supporters, even through some extremely difficult times for their family, and we are so grateful to them for all they have done – and continue to do – in order to help other young patients like Oliver.”
