Chloe’s hospital fundraising appeal
AYOUNG cancer fighter has launched a fundraising campaign to thank the hospital unit that saved her life.
Chloe Glover, 11, from Sale, is fundraising for The Bone Marrow Transplant Unit (BMTU) at Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital.
The Worthington Primary School pupil had to endure chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant after being diagnosed with acute myeloid leukaemia.
She is now on the road to recovery after leaving hospital at the end of January, and has already gained support for her campaign from her school and local businesses.
Last month a team from Openshaw-based Ham Baker Pipelines climbed Mount Toubkal, which at 13,671 feet is the highest peak of the Atlas Mountains in Morocco, to raise money for Chloe’s appeal.
The team was made up of Darren Wood, John Wilson, Phil Green and Sal Chatterton, who is married to Chloe’s teacher Helen Chatterton.
Chloe said: “Now that I am getting better, I would like to raise as much money as possible for the BMTU, to help all the brilliant doctors and nurses in my ward help all the other children to get better.”
Chloe’s headteacher Clive Searle added: “It was a huge shock to us all when Chloe was diagnosed. The children in her class have been thinking about her constantly.
“To know that she has been receiving the best possible medical care has been a great comfort to us all.
“We can celebrate her wellness with this great fundraising effort from Sal Chatterton and his team members.”
Joel Oxberry, corporate fundraising manager at the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital Charity, added: “Despite everything that Chloe has been through, the fact that she is driven to help other poorly children is a true testament to her kind and thoughtful nature. Our young patients are an inspiration to us.”
