Braiden Prescott raises awareness for childhood cancer month

Braiden Prescott raises awareness for childhood cancer month

LAST year people were fund-raising for him, but now generous Braiden Prescott wants to give something back.

The five-year-old, who was given the all clear from neuroblastoma almost a year ago, took part in the ice bucket challenge, donating to ALS charity for motor neurone disease.

His mum, Stephanie Prescott, 22, said: “He asked to do the challenge. The water was quite cold, but he coped well.”

Since Braiden was diagnosed with the serious cancer two-and-a-half years ago, his family and friends had been fund-raising for pioneering treatment in America and they are still raising cash for The Neuroblastoma Children’s Cancer Alliance UK.

Anyone who wishes to donate can do so via www.justgiving.com/braiden-lee/

Meanwhile, Braiden will take part in raising awareness about his previous illness as part of childhood cancer month by posing for photos, holding a neuroblastoma fact.

Stephanie, of Ince, “September is childhood cancer awareness month.

“For some of this month, Braiden will post a picture of him holding a neuroblastoma fact on paper helping to spread the awareness. I hope this reaches a lot of people and more people are made aware of this deadly disease.”

The youngster recently celebrated his fifth birthday and he is looking forward to going back to school this week.

And speaking spoke of her son’s progress, Stephanie said: “ He’s excited to be going back to school though and wearing his new shoes.”
