I’m raising as much as I can to help further research into T-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma.

Please help us raise money and awareness for T-cell non-hogkins lymphoma. 8 year old Charlie Robinson's dad Nik is currently battling this particularly rare and aggressive form of blood cancer, and Charlie is desperate to raise money to help the continued research into helping find a cure, not only for his dad but for everyone currently fighting this disease. Non-Hodgkins lymphoma is the fifth most common cancer in the U.K with 11,500 people diagnosed with it each year. However T-cell lymphoma is a rare form of this disease. Coupled with that, Nik was also diagnosed with Sezary syndrome, which attacks the skin and makes the condition even more aggressive. Nik has undergone Chemotherapy and Cam Path treatment at Addenbrookes and Peterborough hospitals to battle the T-cell lymphoma, and is now undergoing electric beam radiotherapy to battle the Sezary syndrome at Guy's and St Thomas's hospitals in London. Once he has completed that series of treatment, Nick will then have to undergo a bone marrow transplant at Addenbrookes to help further combat the lymphoma. Nik is only 47 years old but he will never be able to work again, and has been forced to take early retirement from the job he loved and had done for over 20 years. It quite literally has turned his world upside down, but has also been a devastating time for Charlie and all the rest of his family and friends. The support that Nik has received however from all of the consultants and medical staff has been extraordinary and we owe them a huge debt of gratitude. We need to continue to provide funding though to ensure the medical research can continue to progress in order to keep improving the survival rate of this disease. Any money donated will make a huge difference, so anything you can spare would be greatly appreciated. Thank you on behalf of Charlie, and all of his family and friends, and the family and friends of everyone else currently battling this disease.

Lymphoma

Survival rates for many types of lymphoma has increased significantly – now, twice as many people survive non-Hodgkin lymphoma as in the 1970s. And four out of five people will survive Hodgkin's lymphoma, compared to fewer than half of patients in the 1970s. Help Cancer Research UK improve effective treatments and survival with your donation.
