The firemen were touched by Jamie’s story and have vowed to raise as much money as possible to help Jamie get treatment for his aggressive cancer abroad. Jamie’s family need to raise around £250,000 for pioneering treatment which is not currently available in the UK and which will significantly improve Jamie’s chances of beating the Neuroblastoma. They have launched an appeal with the Neuroblastoma Alliance UK to raise the funds needed.
As well as undertaking the gruelling 12 mile ‘Tough Mudder’ obstacle course, designed by the special forces, the firemen are also planning other fundraising events, including offering themselves as ‘topless waiters’ for hire.
Jamie is visiting the fire station on Saturday 19 May at 10.30am to meet the kind-hearted fundraisers and put them through their paces.
Jamie has also had some good news this week, when the results of his latest CT scan showed that his cancer has responded well to the latest rounds of chemotherapy which Jamie received at Leeds General Infirmary. His family are flying off to Germany on Sunday to discuss treatment options with experts in Tubingen and hope that Jamie will meet the criteria for their trial.
Jamie’s father, John Inglis, will be available for interview, along with Dave Iddon, the fireman and part-time PE teacher who is leading the firemen’s fundraising efforts.
