More events for St Albans cancer boy Bailey
THE CAMPAIGN to raise funds to pay for urgent treatment for a 12-year-old cancer sufferer in St Albans continues to gain pace with over �33,000 donated so far.
Residents, businesses and schools throughout the district have thrown their collective fundraising clout behind the appeal for Bailey Sarwa, determined to get the brave lad medical care in Germany or the United States.
When the appeal was highlighted in the Herts Advertiser several weeks ago, just �5,000 had been raised for Bailey, who recently suffered a recurrence of neuroblastoma, a rare cancer affecting nerve cells.
Bailey’s family and friends were forced to launch the appeal after Great Ormond Street Hospital, where he is currently undergoing chemotherapy, refused to give him a potentially life-saving vital antibody.
Among the many fundraising events being held are a sponsored dance-a-thon at Beaumont School, a film showing at Sandringham School and cake and candle sale at Garden Fields School.

More details on these and other activities including a local pub that raised �2,000, will be in next week’s edition of this newspaper.
