Alfie (Help Alfie Beat Neuroblastoma) is aged 16 and has been battling cancer for TEN YEARS! Over half of his life has been spent fighting against the aggressive childhood cancer neuroblastoma.
Alfie's mum got in touch with MSS with a request for a grant unlike anything we've had before. Spending so long in/out of isolation and trying various different treatments has left Alfie feeling very much like he never gets time to himself or doesn't really have a space to call his own.
We happily agreed to purchase a large shed/outbuilding (Alfie's Cave as such!) and the lovely company on eBay, Quality Garden Buildings, delivered and built it all very quickly (45 minutes!) at the convenience of Alfie's family.
We received the lovely images below from Alfie's mum, Shelley, and she described Alfie as feeling like he'd "won the lottery".
As always this reminds us here at MSS HQ why it is that we do this. Being able to provide Alfie and his family/friends with this space really is priceless. Thanks as always to our incredible supporters and fundraisers who make grants like this possible.
