On the 9th of August 2021, at the young age of 4, Darcey Korosi was diagnosed with the rare T type form of Lymphoblastic Lymphoma. Since then, Darcey has been going through chemotherapy every week from Wednesday right through to Sunday. She was meant to start school 2 weeks after her diagnosis, but this has not been able to happen as she is too unwell to start school. 

The Korosi family have been advised that the tumour is inoperable and the only way to treat it is with an aggressive form of chemotherapy for the next 2 years. As you can imagine this is having huge side effects on Darcey that would reduce anyone to tears. Darcey’s Mum has been unable to return to work as planned when Darcey was due to start school and her dad had to take 6 months off work while the family got used to their new routine as Darcey is the youngest of 4. 

On Wednesday the 13th of August I will be embarking on a 1,000 plus mile road trip on my motorbike to Wales and back, including a weekend of adventure riding, avoiding all motorways to raise funds for the Korosi family returning on Monday the 18th  of August. 

This fundraiser is to raise funds for the family who are experiencing severe financial hardship to help with day-to-day costs as it’s a 70-mile round trip each day for Darcey’s chemotherapy and to get Darcey the extra help she will need to catch up when she does start school. 

We are acutely aware of the soaring costs of living so please don’t feel obliged to donate if you can’t. The last thing we want is for someone else to be worse off. 

All expenses of this trip will be funded by myself, and all donations will go straight to the Korosi family. 

Thank you.
