Our hearts go out to little Denny Nassy and his anxious parents.
They need money to give the seven-year-old a chance of seeing his next birthday.
If the family does not raise £500,000 in a matter of weeks his fate will be sealed.
In this country, at least.
But there is hope if the boy makes it to the US, where specialist treatment provides a slim chance he could survive.
It shouldn’t be this way.
We have a National Health Service dedicated to helping all.
Some cases are beyond help but Denny has a chance and he should be given it.
With no NHS treatment available, parents Dave and Marie-Anne have no choice but to take the desperate step of making an appeal to get Denny to Philadelphia.
Doctors there are pioneering immunotherapy treatment that could arrest Denny’s acute lymphoblastic leukaemia.
They can also point the way to a cure, or at least remission, for Denny’s sister Marley, aged two. In a billion-to-one chance she has the same disease – a world first in one family.
By some miracle, the family has already raised £200,000 through their Denny’s Last Chance campaign.
They have touched the hearts of celebrities and sports stars, including Chelsea ace Willian, singer Dappy, Heather Mills and YouTuber Joe Suggs.
Dad Dave proudly says Denny is smiling through with hope. “That little boy is not ready to give up,” he says.
That hope deserves a positive result. It lies 3,500 miles away in America. But a life away for Denny and his family.
We hope they get the support to make it.
In all her years as Queen, Her Majesty has rarely put a foot wrong.
She has ruled with grace, dignity and good judgment on matters of state.
She has won global respect for her role and for our nation.
After all the sacrifices she has made, and especially in her advancing years, she deserves more respect in the twilight of her reign from warring members of her own family.
