A local family is fighting to raise money and awareness as they fight against a rare form of children’s cancer called Neuroblastoma. Six-year-old Eden was diagnosed with stage 4 Neuroblastoma in April 2021, it is a rare form of cancer that affects fewer than 100 children each year, but treatment for it is not available in the UK.
To help fight against it, Eden’s family has rallied the supportive community of Eden’s Army. They aim to raise the £280,000 needed to fund the Neuroblastoma treatment in the US.
In order to create awareness for Eden, we felt compelled to get involved and show our support.
The Gardens of Eden Charity Walk
On the 12th of February our MD, Simon Bodsworth (a family friend of Edens), completed a 22-mile charity walk with around 300 other people covering the Huddersfield circular.
Graham’s Running Challenge
Graham Finch, Daval’s technical customer support advisor has decided to take on the challenge of running a massive 2022 kilometres throughout the year of 2022. Graham is a keen runner and as a dad of 3 felt compelled to help and show his commitment all year round.
Turning Kirklees Pink
On the 10th of March, Eden turned 7 and businesses throughout the whole of Kirklees were encouraged to wear something pink for the day and donate to Eden’s army. A great day was had by all with plenty of baking and sweet treats provided by the team and raising much-needed funds for Eden.
