Lewis Mighty, is a 5 year old Derbyshire boy who has Stage 4 High Risk Neuroblastoma; a cancer of the nervous system which mainly targets under 5’s.
Devastatingly; children with Neuroblastoma have only a 20% survival rate here in Europe making it one of the most deadly of child cancers. The Lewis Mighty Fund has been set up to provide the funds for Lewis to travel to America for immunotherapy treatment. This treatment is not available on the NHS; and for Lewis’s best chance of survival he must visit the Memorial-Sloan Kettering Cancer Clinic in New York City.
