£500 to Make Kyle Smile

This week we donated £500 to Make Kyle Smile. In January 2014 Kyle Buckley a Year 6 pupil from Saint Bedes school10419083_1459885575.602 in Bolton was diagnosed with a rare muscle tissue cancer called Rhabdomyosarcoma. During intensive treatment, a drug had an adverse effect on Kyle and he became deaf in July 2014. Giving it his all, he fought hard but Kyle unfortunately relapsed in May 2015. Kyle underwent a course of chemotherapy and twenty five session of radiotherapy and was given the all clear in December 2015. In March of this year, Kyle had his three month routine scan which showed the cancer had returned. Kyle is once again starting treatment to keep the cancer at bay until a trial becomes available and is offered.

Throughout his illness, Kyle has remained so positive and has a constant smile on his face. Kyle’s mum, Carol also lost her husband to bowel cancer when Kyle was only 9 months old. There are some options open to Kyle which involve him travelling to America for treatment, you can see his fundraising page here: https://www.gofundme.com/makekylesmile
