Ashley was a loving,happy 7 year old boy he had the most infectious smile and come rain or shine it was there.
On 9th june 2008 Ashley was diagnosed with stage 4 myc n amplified neuroblastoma. Ashley faught through months of treatment, endless rounds of chemotherapy, radiotherapy, a complex operation and endless routine procedures. In july 2009 we recived the wondefull news Ashley had reached no eveidence of diease, he was in remission.
Devastingly only 6 months later in december 2009 he relapased. Ashley started his fight once again, trying many forms of treatment old and new and in multiple countires ,but sadly the diease was just too aggresive and Ashley lost his battle on 8th september 2010.
Ashley lived his life as if he was on fast forward, he didnt have time for being ill, as he had so much he wanted to do. Ashley did many things in his 7 years that some adults can only dream off, from flying aeroplanes, helicopters and driving fast cars to going on holidays to Disney, both Paris and America. He even trained and faught as a jedi knight! Ashley had a passion for starwars and lego and anything inbetween. He thought himself as a young padawan jedi in training for a battle, sadly the battle was just too big for such a young warrior.
He faced his illness with great courage and bravery, never complaining, never letting it get him down. Ashley faught right to the very end. Ashley was a loving big brother to Amber, a Son, a Grandson, a nephew, friend and insparation to many. He touched the heart of hundreds and will be missed so greatly by us all :'( x
It is our wish that we honour Ashley's memory by creating a memorial fund in his name that can be used, through Families Against Neuroblastoma, to offer other children and families the support they need to get through Neuroblastoma, and together with other like minded families, we can build a fund that can offer a life line to any child that may need it. By working together we can also provide funds for much needed research into Neuroblastoma in the hope that a cure can be found.
Please support us by donating to Ashley's fund, or by joining Team Ashley where you will not only be making a valuable contribution to our cause, but also joining with us to celebrate and honour of the life of our amazing son, Ashley.

Why wouldn't the NHS save our child?
