Welcome to Team Reece
Children's Brain Tumour and Cancer Charity
It Doesn't Stop There
Team Reece do not only want to help these families, we also aim to raise awareness and funds to look for a cure for this disease. We’re here to help.
To provide a Static Caravan on an inclusive site for the use of families directly affected by Childhood Cancer to use for respite and family time.
How We Can Achieve This
Through the kind donations and funding we receive, we can help families going through this hard time have a break away to spend quality time together.
Who is Reece?
Reece is one of the bravest young boys you will have ever known. His strength and courage has not only inspired others including his family, but he has helped to change the lives of childhood cancer sufferers and their loved ones.
His battle started on the 5th May 2016 when he suddenly collapsed, from this moment on his life and the lives of those around him changed forever. Sadly, after years of highs and lows, Reece David Holt passed away peacefully in his mother’s arms and surrounded by his family on the 18th January 2019 at just 13 years old.
Team Reece's Objectives
To provide a Static Caravan on an inclusive site for the use of families directly affected by Childhood Cancer to use for respite and family time. To help them make memories with their loved ones.
Days Out With Friends
Funding and organising fun filled days out for those suffering from childhood cancer as well as their family and friends. We understand that cancer affects everyone around you and want to offer support.
To teach others about cancer treatments and effects, provide support in schools and equipment for educational support for children undergoing treatment for cancer.
Search for a Cure
Gathering funds to enable better treatment options and potential cures, help fund new equipment and clinical trials for children where promise is shown but NHS funding is unavailable.
Do you have a passion for helping others? Or have you attended our events and want to get involved?
Reece’s story began on the 5th May 2016 when Reece collapsed unexpectedly, he was rushed to his local A&E where an urgent CT scan showed a bleed on his brain.
At this point he was no longer able to breathe independently and was intubated before being transferred to Alder Hey intensive care.
Later that day he was placed on full life support, the pressure from the bleed became critical and Reece was rushed in to emergency surgery where doctors discovered he had an Anaplastic Astrocytoma, an extremely rare malignant tumour that only affects around 10 children a year. This would be the day Reece’s life changed forever.
