Stranger’s £1,200 holiday gift for cancer battler, 3
AN ‘overwhelming’ donation from a kind stranger has made a holiday possible for a toddler battling a rare form of cancer.
Chloe Mullan, three, from Accrington, has undergone months of ‘gruelling treatment’ to fight juvenile xanthogranuloma (JXG), which affects only one in every 10 million children.
Good Samaritan Mark Clarkson donated £1,200, to a Go Fund Me page, set up by Chloe’s dad Martin Mullan, so the family could give the tot a break from her treatment.
The donation took them over their £2,000 target and Chloe’s mum Sarah Broad, 31, said she was overcome with emotion by Mr Clarkson’s generosity.
She said: “It is absolutely overwhelming.
“I don’t have a clue who he is and haven’t spoken to him. I would just like to thank him, it is going to make our family and Chloe smile and it means we are able to give her the holiday she deserves, after everything she has gone through.
“It is just incredible, I can’t put into words how we feel.”
Sarah said they have not decided yet where they will go, but Chloe has her heart set on visiting Scarborough beach.
The family will be holding a final fundraiser at the Thorn Inn, in Church, on Saturday, June 30 from 1pm to 6pm.
