Adrian Secareanu, 12 years old, has been diagnosed with mucoepidermoid carcinoma, a tumor located in his neck and jaw. He needs to raise £10,000 to support treatment for a rare form of cancer in the US.
Following several operations to remove the tumor, Adrian is due to travel to Florida for proton therapy to stop it returning in a more aggressive form. He is expected to spend at least three months in the US.
He will receive treatment at the University of Florida Proton Therapy Institute in Jacksonville after the National Specialised Commissioning Team and the Proton Therapy Clinical Reference Panel agreed to cover the cost of the treatment through the NHS.
Charity Kids ‘N’ Cancer has launched an appeal to raise £10,000 to fund his family’s expenses during the trip. Founder of Kids ‘N’ Cancer said: “We try to be there as an emotional crutch for the family and ensure the funding is reached as soon as possible. Adrian’s parents work long hours and do everything they can to give him a good start in life. We are here to help them in any way we can.”
