Supporting Alex's journey to Wellness

Hi Guys,

We are Peter and Louisa's close friends who want to try and help make their lives that little bit easier while going through another tough journey with their son Alex to beat his cancer once and for all. 
Alex's treatment would include either a bone marrow transplant in Crumlin hospital or Car T cell treatment in hospital in Manchester where he would stay for possibly 6-8 weeks. 

Lets help them in the only way we can in these challenging times and show Alex we support him and try raise enough to take the pressure off and focus on what's important.

In Louisa's words ,Alex's mam, read all about their journey so far.

The 27th of June 2017 is one of those days that is etched on my mind forever! It was the day my gorgeous 11 year old son was diagnosed with leukaemia. This child who had rarely had as much as a cold in his whole life had cancer! Myself and Peter picked ourselves up and we got on that rollercoaster guided by the strength of this warrior , his two beautiful sisters and each other. We cried we laughed and we learned a lot! We were supported by family, friends, colleagues, community and even kind strangers. Three years and four months later we rang that bell that stated, "ring this bell three times well, its toll to clearly say, my treatments done this course is run and now I'm on my way! We did it!!!! We floated out of hospital that day confident we would never return.

However...... three and a half months later on Friday 19th of February 2021 we got the call that rocked us to our core. "I'm so sorry the cancer is back " an early relapse you need to come in in 48 hours to begin treatment again.........I don't have the words to describe our pain that weekend.

So here we are almost 5 weeks since we got that news, treatment well and truly underway again.

Alex quickly decided that this is part of the plan for his life again, but this time he is going to get rid of this once and for all. He chooses to believe that he is blessed and will do great things because of this experience! I have no doubt that he will! Lauren and Ava have been wonderful as always and Peter and I know how blessed we are to have these three fabulous, kind and caring children. Thank you to every single person  who reaches out and supports us every day. Keep those prayers going and continue to send us positive energy every day of this journey. Louisa, Peter, Lauren, Ava and the main man Alex McEleney.

With our help we could make this journey a little bit easier to bare.

Thank you for your support.
