If you’ve any spare money floating around, please feel free to push some to this fundraiser for Alexander’s Journey:

Alexander Goodwin is a nine year old boy who loves sharks, dinosaurs and anything to do with nature.

On 8th June the family had some terrible news that Alex had been diagnosed with Ewing Sarcoma of his right femur.

Ewing Sarcoma is a rare type of bone cancer that affects children. Fewer than 30 children in the UK develop Ewing’s Sarcoma each year.

Alex has had weeks of scans and tests and now faces chemotherapy, radiotherapy and surgery. The surgery will attempt to remove the tumour but the sad truth is that it is not uncommon for it to be necessary to remove the whole limb or part of it.

Alex has got some really tough times ahead. Some practical adjustments need to take place to make life easier for Alex and the Doctors have said that it is really important that he has something positive to look forward to as this will help his recovery.

Alex has many things he likes and wants to do and he needs extra support at home to get around.

However Alex’s biggest dream is to go to Disney land and Universal studios and this page is about raising money for him and his family to help with practical adjustments and send him on his dream holiday.

His Dad, a policeman, and his Mum, who has had to finish working to care for him full time, need help. His 3 year old sister is suffering too: she knows things aren’t right and misses playing with her brother.

Family, friends and close colleagues have rallied to support Alex and are planning various fund raising activities.

Alex’s family and friends are tremendously grateful for the life saving care and support they have received and continue to receive from the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital in Birmingham and the Children’s Cancer Ward at the Leicester Royal Infirmary.

In recognition of this, a donation will be made from monies received to the Charities of both organisations.
