Help us raise money for Kane!
This auction is running to help raise hopefully thousands of pounds for this remarkable young man. Please read the abbreviated statement below from his parents and visit the Facebook page for Kane's Wishlist http://www.facebook.com/KanesWishlist.
Kane McElhinney is 11 years old. He has LFS (Li–Fraumeni Syndrome) which causes cancer in children and young adults. He has been fighting liver cancer since February 2012. He has embryonic liver sarcoma of the rarest kind and his tumors are wrapped around his main tummy arteries so therefore cannot be removed. With no further treatment available for him, Kane & his Mother are traveling to Frankfurt Liver Centre in Germany where Kane will receive Transarterial Chemoablation Therapy. The intent of transarterial chemoablation is to eliminate the primary blood supply of the tumor, with the idea that the tumor will die without proper nutrients. A chemotherapeutic agent is injected into the hepatic artery, where the liver primarily gets its blood supply, and the artery becomes occluded and blood flow stops.
This will give all of Kane's family & friends more time to spend with him, completing his dreams and goals on this wishlist.
The bad news is, this treatment costs £4,000 each treatment and Kame needs 5. that is 5 at £4,000 each, plus 5 lots of flights & accommodation. We desperately need your help. We have decided to set up "Kane's Wishlist" to help him achieve all his goals, ambitions and luxury wishes he has set out to conquer in his life.
The money raised from this auction will go towards Kane's once in a lifetime trip to the fabulous New York! It will also contribute toward the things on his 'itinerary of his life'.
