Sam's Dad Mark, did an awful lot for me when I was a nipper karting in Cadets, please donate whatever you can, to help save this young lad's life! "Sam Olley is three years old and his Dad works in the racing industry. Sam has been fighting a brain tumour since he was 17 months old. He has just received another surgery to remove the tumour that has regrown. He has had chemotherapy but that is no longer an option second time around. So the next step will be a form of radiation treatment to the brain to try and kill off any remaining tumour and cells.
Sam needs Proton Beam Therpay. Although the NHS are not against this treatment and Sam’s doctors will be putting forward an application for NHS funding but Sam doesn’t meet one of the requirements for funding and criteria is strict. If they won’t fund I need to have the money in two and a half weeks as treatment needs to be started quickly after surgery or we can’t go.
Sam’s parents are looking to raise £150,000 within the next two and half weeks to cover the cost of treatment.
So far Steven Kane, Nick Tandy, ‘Pipo’ Derani, Darren Turner, Karun Chandhok, Guy Smith, Marino Franchitti, Lucas Ordonez, Jann Mardenborough and many others have tweeted or facebooked selfies in their ‘casque’ to help raise awareness." #showusyourhelmet
