Westmeath family ask for help raising money for son's rare cancer treatment

Friends and family of Lee Wallace are looking for your help to raise vital funds.

26-year-old, Lee, was diagnosed with very rare bone sarcoma in his pelvis. A mixture of an Osteosarcoma, an Ewings sarcoma and a spindle cell sarcoma, Lee's form of cancer is so rare, a definitive diagnosis has not been possible.

And so, in order to get treatment for his rare tumour and to fight the cancer which has now spread to his lungs, Lee's mother, Dawn, has set up a GoFundMe page in order to help raise vital funds.

"Having done a lot of research we are aware of treatment options in other countries, but unfortunately these treatments carry a large price tag. Your financial support will give Lee the best chance of finding a cure and a chance to live," the post reads.

The family have already raised €106,676 from over 2,488 people with their goal being €250,000.
