October 4, 2019: Hand in Hand for Oscar

A RALLYING call has gone out for schools across Worcestershire to join in with a fund-raiser to fund potentially life-saving treatment for Oscar Saxelby-Lee.

Please help us to raise money for Oscar by joining us on ‘UNDERPANTS DAY’ (Friday,18th October 2019).  Wear your underpants over the top of your clothes and bring a donation (minimum £1).

Mum Olivia Saxelby and dad Jamie Lee were dealt a heart-breaking blow when they were told there may be no further treatment options left for Oscar on the NHS.

‘Meet Oscar, our beautiful 5 year old boy who has T-cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia. Sadly, Oscar’s recent stem cell transplant hasn’t cured him, meaning that he urgently needs further treatment that the NHS cannot fund.

We’re pleading to you for help in raising £500,000 to help save our child, which will fund either a second transplant or enrolment onto Car-T therapy in Singapore. We do not have a lot of time. If Oscar does not receive this treatment by November, then our unthinkable will soon become his reality.

Every donation counts, no matter how small.’
