The Mitchell Huth Appeal

Something a little different from me today. One of my fellow Bunnies, Chloe, is trying to save the life of her nephew Mitchell, please read and donate as generously as you can. If you could pass this information on to your readers too I know Mitchell's family would be very grateful.




"The Mitchell Huth Appeal 

Our son Mitchell Huth was born on 17th June 2005, weighing a very healthy 9lb 10oz. We felt so happy and our family was now complete. Things started to seem not right with Mitchell when he started to develop chronic constipation and would never settle, he could never sleep through the night. We called for help and support and went back and forth to our GP. In June 2007, we were given the diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder. Whilst it took a lot to accept that he has this diagnosis, we channelled it all into getting the support he needs. A year of a fantastic social and communication centre working very hard with Mitchell paid off, as he then went onto mainstream school. He has done so well and become a very fun loving and independent little boy who has made us all so very proud.

He just started Year 1 in September 2010, a few weeks into the new term things took a turn for the worst. On October 11th after some signs on his head area and left eye didn't seem normal, we were told out worst nightmate. Our son had Stage 4 Neuroblastoma. Mitchell has had chemotherapy, surgery to remove the primary tumour, high dose chemotherapy with stem cell rescue and radiotherapy. We are now at the stage of receiving UK Antibodies on a trial. Unfortunately
 there is still an unacceptably high percentage of children relapsing after having this. Worse, is the fact that there is currently no relapse protocol in the UK.

Shoudl Mitchell relapse we would have to take him abroad for treatment. These treatments cost upwards of £150,000 and to give Mitchell the best chance to beat relapse in the brain (a very common relapse site), we would need to have a deposit of around £300,000 to begin treatment in America. Please help us build this fund for Mitchell, to give him the best chance of life he so rightly deserves. With all my heart, thank you, Mitchell's mummy.

Donating through this page is simple, quick and secure. It is the most efficient way to give – so every donation goes further – and if you are a UK taxpayer and give Gift Aid consent the charity will receive extra at no cost to you. Thank you for your support."
