Leap for Lulu JustGiving
If each of our readers donated £1, Lulu's Appeal would raise £60,000

On 19 May people will be jumping from the top of a 125 foot tower at Twinwoods Adventure to raise money for 5-year-old Lulu De Vries so she can get life-saving treatment in New York.

Lulu has high-risk neuroblastoma. If Lulu’s cancer were to return, her chances of survival would drop to less than one in ten. The treatment in New York aims to reduce the chances of relapse.

The Bedford Independent team and our families will also be taking part (some of us terrified of heights) but this challenge is nothing compared to what children like Lulu face every day.

If each of our readers sponsored us with just £1 then we’d raise £60,000.

We’re determined to overcome our own fears to support this worthwhile cause and get Lulu to New York so she can have the treatment she needs.

We’d like to raise a minimum of £300 but let’s smash that figure!

Happy, full of life, a whirlwind of loveliness, five-year-old Lulu just has a great big smile that lights up the world.

But in January 2018, just months after starting school, she was diagnosed with high-risk neuroblastoma and it had spread to her bones, bone marrow and lymphatic system.

Lulu immediately started chemotherapy and surgery, and more chemotherapy, stem cell harvest, high dose chemotherapy, radiotherapy and immunotherapy (which she is currently having) followed.

Her family want Lulu to access treatment in New York a clinical trial which is showing promise in reducing relapse rates, which near 50% with high-risk neuroblastoma.

If Lulu’s cancer were to return, her chances of survival would drop to less than one in ten.

The treatment in New York aims to reduce the chances of relapse.

Her parents are launching an appeal to raise £162,000 by July 2019, and hope Lulu will be in remission at the end of immunotherapy to be able to access the treatment.
