An Leeds family has put out an urgent appeal to help raise £200,000 to help fund treatment for their little boy.

Toby Nye, aged four, from the Rookwood Estate, has been diagnosed with stage four Neuroblastoma, a rare type of cancer which mostly affects babies and young children.

Toby became unwell at Christmas time last year and gradually deteriorated to the point that he was unable to walk.

On his fourth birthday, in January, Toby’s devastated family were given the news that he had a stage four Neuroblastoma tumour.

Toby was initially given chemotherapy by the NHS and was told he would need an operation on his kidney to remove the tumour.

The family has now been informed that the chemotherapy has not worked.

They are now weighing up their options, including flying abroad for treatment - at a cost of up to £200,000.

In a message on a JustGiving fundraising page, Toby’s parents, Simon Nye and Stacey Worsley, said: “We are trying to raise money for our gorgeous son Toby to fund treatment, help him make memories and try and have fun times during his Neuroblastoma Journey.

“Toby had gone from a very active little boy to being unable to move without help.

“Toby has a big brother Ollie who is six years old and a baby sister called Sienna who is now nine months 
old.

“Toby’s mum and dad are very busy trying to balance home life as well as a life in hospital.”

The family has raised just over £2,500 of the £200,000 target so far thanks to 108 supporters.
