Donations come in to help Mikey

More than £3,400 has been raised to help a family travel with their son to America for potentially life-saving treatment.

Mikey Wells, 10, of Wellingborough, has been fighting a brain tumour for nearly three years.

Despite having several types of chemotherapy, the family was told recently that Mikey’s tumour was still growing.

If the latest treatment fails, Mikey has been referred for proton therapy in America and if his case is succesful, the NHS will fund his treatment.

But if the family wants to be with him for the eight to 12 weeks he’s there, they must raise £10,000.
