Formby resident appealing for help to save a 12-year-old girl

A Formby resident is appealing for help for a young 12-year-old girl named Charlie. Charlie has a brain tumour and was diagnosed with a condition called DIPG (Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma), which affects 35 children and is presently living on borrowed time. The doctors gave her 6 months last March. Charlie needs treatment to prolong her life for another 2 years. For the past 9 months, Charlie's family have been doing raffles, sponsored jumps etc to raise money to be able to do some of the things on Charlie’s ‘bucket list’. Formby's very own Steven Gerrard’ went to her house to meet Charlie who is a big Liverpool fan. Another tick off Charlie’s bucket list!

Charlie has gone through chemotherapy treatment and this thankfully shrunk the tumour a little, which gave her another 3 months to live; which takes us to present day. There is however, an injection treatment that will prolong Charlie’s life for another 2 years but it’s only available in Germany.

The family are doing all sorts of things to try and raise the money to get her there but the clock is ticking. They have raised £8,000 at the moment but they need around £40,000 for the treatment. The Go Fund Me page at has been set up in the hope that people will help. It is a race against time to give a seriously-ill young girl a chance of life-prolonging treatment.
