This week, we’d like to help a teenage boy from the Midlands who has a terminal illness.
Eight months ago, he was sadly given less than a year to live. He is cared for by his dad and grandpa, who have decided it’s best that he doesn’t know the prognosis. They want him to enjoy the time he has left without fear or anxiety.
His dad made the tough decision to stop working, as he wants to spend as much time with his son as possible. His grandpa is still working, but they are under a lot of financial strain. They live in a rented house and are building up arrears every month.
They were nominated by a support worker from the local council. She said the boy's dad and grandpa are trying so hard to make the time he has left special and fun - but they are really struggling. We’d like to raise funds to take some pressure off and make whatever time this young boy has left as wonderful as it can possibly be.
