The family of 7-year-old Oliver from Minster-on-Sea is doing a blindfolded fundraising run to honour Oliver’s bravery and highlight his daily struggle with blindness since he lost his sight fighting cancer. Oliver was diagnosed with neuroblastoma before his 1st birthday and has been fighting the disease ever since. Side effects from his treatment have also meant that Oliver has to wear hearing aids and walk with a cane. Despite this his Mum Natalie told us, “Oliver really enjoys life and doesn’t let his disabilities hold him back in anyway at all. Oliver has always been told if he wants to try something then he can and to never think of himself as any different to any other little boy.”
The fundraising run will take place at Garrison Point, Sheerness Beach at mid-day on Saturday 30th April and the family is welcoming as many people as possible to cheer them on! If you’d like to support the family you can text OLSM88 and an amount £1-10 to 70070.
