A fundraiser has been launched in the hope of raising cash for a Dundee boy’s trip to the US for life-saving treatment.
Seven-year-old Garvie Winter, from Downfield, was diagnosed with leukaemia last November.
Since then, the Fintry Primary pupil has undergone numerous rounds of chemotherapy which mum Haley, 32, said have been unsuccessful.
Haley also recently made an unsuccessful appeal for a bone marrow donor who could be a potential match for Garvie.
Now, a fundraiser has been set up to raise £25,000 for him to travel to Washington for car T cell therapy — with family saying the UK waiting list is too long.
The pioneering treatment involves a patient’s T cells — a type of immune system cell — being changed in the laboratory so they will attack cancer cells.
