I just wanted to let everyone who so generously supported my North Pole Marathon cause to help Alex Field travel to America for potential life saving treatment of his brain tumour; that young Alex and his family left for Chicago last Sunday, where he will be meeting with the oncologists this week to discuss the options now open to him.
Fundraising is still continuing as this process is not cheap (!) but we have raised to enough for him to begin this important journey.
He has been so brave recently having suffered further fragmentation and growth of the tumour. All our thoughts and prayers are with him as enters, what we hope, will be a period of positive treatment that will help give him back his life.
Thank you all again so much on behalf of Alex and his family.
