A FUNDRAISER will be held to raise cash for a five-year-old who is battling cancer.
Carter Jones has a Wilms tumour - a rare childhood cancer which affects just 80 children every year - and subsequent scans have shown that the cancer has spread to Carter’s vena cava, the main vein to the heart.
He underwent an open heart bypass recently and will need a further six months of chemotherapy.
The shocking diagnosis came on June 26, a day that started like any other.
A fundraising day will be held on Saturday at The Bridge Inn, Monk Bretton, from 3pm.
We have been at the heart of our community, every week, since 1858. The town and its people have changed dramatically since then but the Chronicle has been a constant.
It’s our belief that news should be available to everyone regardless of their circumstance. But we need a little helping hand to do so.
Production Editor, Ashley Ball, said: "In an ever changing media world, it’s important that news is reported correctly and without any hidden agenda.
Your support allows us to keep holding decision-makers to account and report on everything that happens in the town, good or bad, fairly."
