Abseil for Oxford Children's Hospital

Summary: Raising Funds for the Children's Cancer Ward treating my Grandson.



I'm abseiling down a very tall building to help raise funds for the fantastic Children's Ward at the Oxford Children's Hospital.

Our 5 year old Grandson, Lewis has Langerhan's Cell Histiocytosis (LCH), which initially created a tumour in his skull and was treated with Chemotherapy/Steroids at the Oxford Children's Hospital Cancer Ward.   

He is in his 2nd year of treatment, having relapsed and now suffers from Diabetes Insipidus caused by LCH spreading to his Pituitary Gland.  His treatment will probably last another year or so, and he is likely to be under the supervision of the hospital for a further 10 years.

Less than 50 children a year in the UK are diagnosed with Langerhan's Cell Histiocytosis (LCH), there is no known cure and the Oxford Children's Hospital is a centre of excellence.

Lewis (or Louie as we call him) is a very brave little chap, taking all the treatment in his stride, even being filmed having his treatment, to show its not, as he says "scary".


He is just one of the many children treated annualy at this fantastic hospital, where the Doctors, Nurses and Play Specialists do an astounding job, often in very traumatic circumstances.

Many of the children need to stay for prolonged periods in the ward, usually with their Mums and/or Dads, and all the toys, playstations, WII's etc that all children love are donated privately, through schemes like this. There is also a vast amount of medical equipment that is funded through the charity.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

So if you have children or love children please dig deep and donate now, every penny counts.
