A little boy's fight against blood cancer
George Ferriman is a 3 year-old boy who lives with his family in Cookham. In February this year he was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukaemia (AML), a rare form of leukaemia that affects only 100 children a year in the UK. Since then his parents have been supporting him through treatment while also trying to keep family life together for their other children.
George's family and friends have mobilised to support him, and other children like him, as he battles with this potentially fatal disease. Money raised will be donated to medical research and to charities that support the families of desperately sick children.
The tournament proceeds will be donated to the charity CLIC Sargent, which provides practical, emotional, and financial help to the families of children with leukaemia and other cancers during and after their treatment. For more information about their work, visit www.clicsargent.org.uk.
You can help further by donating blood and registering as a bone marrow donor. George has already required multiple blood transfusions and is likely to need a bone marrow transplant as part of his treatment.
