This week, 52 Lives would like to help a little boy called Zane.
Zane is from Rockhampton, Queensland, but is living in Brisbane so he can be closer to the hospital, where he has sadly had to spend the majority of the past year.
Last year, Zane was diagnosed with neuroblastoma (a type of cancer). His parents were told he has a 50/50 chance of beating it.
It is obviously a heartbreaking time for the family. Zane has been undergoing all sorts of treatments for almost a year now. The treatments are invasive, and often make him feel ill - something that's very difficult for someone so young to even begin to understand. It is also taking its toll, both emotional and financially, on his family.
Zane will be starting school soon. It may be a school in the hospital to begin with, but they are hoping it will be proper school soon. When I asked Zane's mum if there's anything they need, her request was a very simple one. She said she would love to give him fun new school supplies to start the year with.
