    Default Jack Marshall Brain Tumour Fund

    I wanted to tell you about my friend's little boy, Jack.

    Jack was just 6 years old when he passed away last year on October 13th at home surrounded by in family and in his mum Tracey's arms after battling against a brain tumour for 2 years. Tracey & Craig nursed Jack at home 24/7 for the last 6 mmonths of his life, they are a remarkable family.

    WHen Jack was seriously ill he decided he would like to help to raise awareness of brain tumours and their early detection in children as this is vital in determining the outcome, Jack set up www.Jacksfund.co.uk with the help of his mum and dad and big brother Josh to do just this.

    Jack started twittering to raise awareness and made a facebook page to raise awareness, this has resulted in Jack having over 100,000 followers on twitter and over 10,000 friends on facebook, these followers and friends have become known as Jack's Army and trielessly support Tracey , Craig and Josh daily in what I can only imagine days that have very dark times in them.

    I cannot imagine Losing child and watching my friends loose their 6 year old son broke my heart, Jack smiled through it all.

    I can oonly imagine what Graham and Pauline have recently gone through and hope they too have a loveing family and support network around them other than their Forum Army.

    I have been planning a black tie ball in Jacks honour for September 15th at the wortley hotel in scunthorpe , tickets are £35 each and include a 3 course meal, freddie mercury tribute act, disco, raffle , auction, door prize and their will also be a proffessional photographer there to capture the night and also a caracaturist.

    Jacks parents are in the process of registering Jacks Fund to a charity , which will hopefully be by the end of the march/april. There aim is to help other families who have children suffering from any form of cancer in any way thery need help be it financially to help pay bills ( Jacks familiy struggled as they were unable to work in order to give jack 24 hour care ) emotional support, loan equipment and aids etc

    If you feel you could help in any way either by donating a raffle prize or something for the auction I would be very very grateful, or if you would like to make a donation however small, every £1 helps I would be very grateful and I know The Marshalls would be too.

    Please take a look at www.jacksfund.co.uk and read all about Jack and what an inspiration he was and continues to be, he really was an inspirational little boy

    It's so sad to hear about parents losing their children, but very often so inspirational to hear about how courageous the children themselves have been.

    I hope your fundraiser is a huge success xx

    I too read and didnt comment! Sorry!
    You have been doing a great job raising awareness for the cause.

    As you know, one of Emma (dd's)'s 6 yr old friend is going through it too and we have spent lots of time wondering how on earth they are coping with it all.

    Please remind me nearer the time about the raffle prize I offered.

    Good luck with the ticket sales,
    Rachel xx

    sounds like a very inspirational little fella, why is it always the good that get these things and not the horrible people in this world , life is so unfair at times, I hope your fundraising goes well and that you are able to help many other familys.

    What a beautiful little boy he is, so cheeky and full of life. It's just so cruel that little children have to go through this...I read everything on his webpage.
