    Time running out

    Hello All
    Feel uncomfortable posting a message like this on these forums but I have to try just in case you can help
    (moderators if you have to remove this post I do understand)

    This message is very personal and close to my heart and hope you do not mind it being sent to you.

    A little school pal of my six year old son, was diagnosed with brain cancer, just before Christmas, with a poor prognosis. The dreadful news came almost a year to the day when My son lost his dear Nan (my mum) to the same disease.

    The family have recently been offered a good chance of cure but it has come at a cost. Alex needs to fly to Boston within the next two weeks at a cost of £225,000. This is a very great task raising so much money in so little time but I would really like to pass on his appeal and hope that my friends and family may be able to pass on this message and help raise the much needed funds. Please visit his appeal site to read more about this remarkable little chap - http://www.alexandersfund.net/ http://www.justgiving.com/treatmentforalex

    I know cancer touches us all and you may know of other sources of help that would benefit this cause.

    Thank you so very much.

    I'd definitely recommend giving the local Lions club a call and seeing if they can help - if you let me know what town (guessing Aylsebury from your profile?), I can get you some contact info.

    This is pretty much exactly the sort of thing we try to help with

    Ok, I've got some info for you, their email address is info@aylesburylions.org.uk

    Their contact phone number is 01844 291039, which I believe is John Binstead, who I think is their secretary.

    I hope this is of some help! If it's no good, drop me a PM and I'll see if I can get their President's info
