Grow A Love Tree

Grow A Love Tree

To lighten the financial strain on a family struggling after their youngest child was diagnosed with rhabdomyosacoma aged 2yr8m on 11/10/17

We did it!

On 17th Dec 2017 we successfully raised £130 with 5 supporters in 14 days

Diagnosed with cancer is always a disaster but at only 2yrs 8months Thomas Bennett's life changed forever with a diagnosis of rhabdomyosacoma in his face. 

The aim of this fund is to give a little love back to a loving smiling child by helping his family financially so they can continue support and stay with him at this difficult time. 

There are unseen costs from a loved one diagnosed with cancer. Hospital stays mean finding easy food options for the parents staying with the child these can be costly day in day out over extended periods. Travel between home and the hospital taking hours plus needing to make several trips a day just to keep supplies up of food, clean clothes and toiletries at hospital for parents staying at the bedside. This will all continue for several years including a possible trip to USA for proton therapy where the family will be relying on help and support for basic daily living costs while in USA. Parents travel costs to USA and Emergency passports costing several hundred pounds to ensure our child is given the best chances with advanced treatments abroad not available in the UK. Plus changes to the home to not only protect his new needs due to a damaged immune system but also to bring him and his family extra joy upon his return.

There is a lot to be done but with your support we can 'Grow A Love Tree' to hold them together, keep them strong and bare some of the financial strains of treating and supporting Thomas at this tough time in his young life to build a better future.

Thank you for reading our intentions for funds raised. All funds raised go directly to the family after site deducted fees. (Fee information about this site are available in it's terms and conditions)
