During lockdown, five-year-old Jago was diagnosed with a non-curative brain tumour. Here’s how you can help raise fund for treatment.
The family is raising funds to get to Switzerland for a clinical trial using a drug, developed by Oncoceutics, which has a ‘high potency compared to the next best drug on the market’. With the price starting at £450k, they need every bit of help they can get. Please do consider supporting this cause and helping Jago to receive the treatment he needs. Do read Gabriele’s longer statement and donate here. Relying on the kindness of strangers is not an easy place to be, but it can be an affirming one. Please let’s show this family – which includes Jago’s twin sister Imogen – our deep reserves of humanity.
Since learning of Jago’s plight, we have looked a little further into DIPG. In the course of our researches, we have discovered another little boy battling the same shattering disease (there are only 40 cases diagnosed annually in the UK, hence the relative lack of knowledge about the condition). You can find eight-year-old Kyle’s Go Fund Me page here and help him and his family reach America for another clinical trial that could help him defy his devastating prognosis of 12 months to live. Let’s do all that we can. We wish both families love and luck.
