Team Lottie’s Appeal

£229,612 donated of £155,000 goal

Lottie has been fighting high-risk neuroblastoma since she was 2 ½. A happy little girl with a sweet wilful nature, she loves to create and adores anything pink and sparkly.

Now 4 years old, Lottie has been responding well to frontline standard treatment and is due to finish immunotherapy mid-September 2017. This will mark the end of her treatment in the UK, at which point it is hoped that her end-of-treatment scans will show no evidence of disease.

Then, to keep Lottie in remission and help prevent relapse, which she is more susceptible to because her primary tumour had MYCN markers, her next step will be to access the Bivalent Vaccine clinical trial at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, New York. Her family and treating team have identified this as the best option to help keep Lottie neuroblastoma free.

Lottie and her family remain ever positive and prepared to fight and have been appealing for your help to raise £155k to access the trial; cover the associated costs (e.g. travel and accommodation); and to ensure a contingency for any unforeseen complications.

Thanks to the incredible support they’ve received, the family met their fundraising target on 15th September. They now have enough funds in place for Lottie to access the treatment, which pending confirmation of her eligibility, they hope she can do very soon.

“We will never leave her side. We’ll never give up, we’ll fight with her, for her, and next to her.” Lottie’s parents, Charlotte and Dave.

Lottie’s fundraising campaign

Relapse rates for neuroblastoma are high, and the survival rate for relapsed neuroblastoma is less than 10%. This statistic worsens with every relapse. Relapsed neuroblastoma is particularly challenging to treat and there are limited options to treat it; all of which exist in the form of clinical trials, some in the UK and some abroad. Many families, just like Lottie’s, will choose for their child to access these experimental therapies in an attempt to help prevent cancer returning or to get their child back in to remission.

Lottie’s family and treatment team have identified the Bivalent Vaccine clinical trial in New York to try to help keep Lottie’s cancer away. They have raised enough funds to secure Lottie’s access to this treatment and therefore, any additional funds raised will be held for Lottie for a period of 5 years post the end of her treatment in case she needs them.
