Stranger’s £1,200 hol­i­day gift for can­cer bat­tler, 3

Accrington Observer - - NEWS -

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.
