Community gets behind Morgan’s Fight

​A NUMBER of fundraising efforts have taken place recently in order to raise funds for Morgan’s Fight.

7-year-old Morgan Hayes, from Whitland, was diagnosed with stage 4 high risk neuroblastoma in February 2015.

He gained first remission this year after a trial in Bristol. Unfortunately he soon relapsed and the neuroblastoma came back in force.

He has 2 tumours on his spinal cord which are being treated with chemotherapy and radiotherapy, although currently the family are unsure if he will gain function in his lower half.

The family started up a fundraising campaign to give their son the best possible treatments from around the world.

The doctors are not looking for a cure but to stabilise, but they are fighting for any possible trials or treatments out there that will save him.

Any donations are greatly appreciated. Go to Morgans Fight Of Neuroblastoma – GoFundMe.

Dyfed-Powys Police have also got behind the fight and held a special football match to raise funds.

Superintendent Mills said: “As soon as we heard about Morgan’s Fight we knew it was a cause we wanted to back. Local police officers work in the heart of the community, and we will do all we can do to support such a worthy cause.

“No parent can imagine seeing their child go through something like this, and for such a young boy to have fallen ill twice is heartbreaking.

“We hope the community will really take this fundraising campaign to their hearts, and look forward to seeing our vehicles proudly displaying the Morgan’s Fight ribbon.”

Local photographer Robert Wilson has also been busy, asking people to donate items for a special auction hosted by actor Ian Hawke who runs the 5 Wishes foundation.

That auction was held recently and £478 was raised with Rob saying that he will make it up to £500 and 5 Wishes are also donating £200 which will make £700.

The raffle for the holiday, for a family of four from the Penlan Holiday Park, is going to be drawn on October 22 and they are just waiting for the rest of the money to come in.

Ian Hawke from 5 Wishes will be up to present the cheque with Rob and they are also trying to bring 5 Wishes to Wales.

That is not the only fundraising effort that has taken place as members of Whitland Male Voice choir recently presented a cheque for £1,217.00 to Morgan (Morgan’s Fight) following a very successful BBQ at Cresswell Quay last month.

The Choir would like to wish Morgan all the best for his visit to London and for the future.​
