Give a Lyttle! Brave Youngster Needs Your Help.

A fundraising campaign is reaching out to the public to help raise £200,000 for life-saving medical treatment for a 10-year-old girl with a rare form of cancer.

Isabella Lyttle was just three-years-old when she was diagnosed with neuroblastoma in October 2010.

Isabella has relapsed three times – most recently in March 2017.

Isabella is being treated with chemotherapy to try and stop the growth of the tumours but her next stage of treatment may involve a new Phase 1 clinical trial in the UK. With no results from the trial, it’s impossible for everyone involved in Isabella’s care to ascertain whether this will be successful for her. “If the phase 1 trial is unsuccessful then we know we will have to take Isabella overseas for treatment as we will have exhausted all options in the UK,” Jennie and Mark, Isabella’s parents.

Trying to be prepared, they are now researching all options. Should the best option for Isabella exist overseas, which will not be NHS-funded, her parents are appealing for your support to help raise funds to access the treatment when they need to.

High-risk neuroblastoma has a high rate of relapse, and the survival rate for relapsed neuroblastoma is less than 10%. This statistic worsens with every relapse. Relapsed neuroblastoma is particularly challenging to treat and there are limited options to treat it; all of which exist in the form of clinical trials, in the UK and overseas. Many families, just like Isabella’s, will choose for their child to access a clinical trial, in the hope that it will prevent a dangerous relapse, or, get their child back in to remission.

Accessing a clinical trial overseas is not NHS funded and can cost hundreds of thousands of pounds. Supporting Isabella’s fundraising campaign will help to ensure that if Isabella’s family choose for her to access a clinical trial abroad for additional cancer therapy, they are able to realise these aspirations for their little girl.

There are many ways you can help Isabella; by making a personal donation; holding a fundraiser; getting sponsored to take on a challenge; or simply following and sharing Isabella’s story through her Facebook page.
