RE Tickets . Due to a high number of enquiries for tickets for day and evening, we have had to do the tickets on a first come first served basis due to health and safety and fire regulations of the venue. Unfortunately due to this we are unable to sell tickets on the door on the day/evening.

Catherine & Eric xx

Tears in my eyes reading this. A lesson learnt for me as well, to not always take a Dr's word for it.

To echo JMC, what a beautiful & brave boy Archie is, and what a smile!! I wish you all the best and will pencil this day into the diary.

Catherine and Eric have sent some pictures of Archie after his liver transplant - what a brilliant smile after all he's been through!

It will be great to help raise money for the charities that have supported this Marple family.

Archie's Story:

Meet our little man Archie, he is 9 months old and from Marple. Archie was just 4 months old when he was diagnosed with Hepatoblastoma; an extremely rare liver cancer, especially in a baby his age.
 
On the 29th March 2014 we noticed a swelling on his left side whilst giving him a bath. Although virtually from birth we visited our GP on numerous occasions to query his sickness, crying and other symptoms that now fall in to place for someone with Archie’s condition. At virtually each appointment we were told that babies are often sick and they do cry.  Archie was bringing up large volumes of milk, and could cry for up to 20 hrs a day. After all Archie is baby number 4 and instinct was telling us that something wasn’t right.  

Although we had visited the Dr’s that Monday morning, We decided to take him to the children’s A&E at Stepping Hill in Stockport due to the swelling, half thinking we were going to be sent home again. The Dr’s in A&E examined him and as it was late they admitted him to the ward where they took blood. We remember the doctor coming in and saying he has a long rocky road ahead of him and not knowing what she meant. Cancer hadn't even entered our mind as he was being treated for reflux and lactose intolerance. The next day he had an abdominal ultra sound scan and due to the findings we were told we were being transferred to Ward 84 at Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital. It was there that we were told he was in stage 4.
 
Archie has gone through 3 months of grueling chemotherapy  and in the early hours of the 21st June we had a phone call from the transplant coordinator  to say there was a donor liver suitable for him. It was up in Leeds that Archie had his transplant after only being on the list for 5 days.

Archie rang the end of chemotherapy bell on the 13th August 2014, although he still has a long way to go.
