Ollie's Fund

Help Save Ollie

At just 12 years old, Ollie Gardiner from Aston Clinton has spent over a year fighting a brain tumour, thinking he’d won and then dealing with the fact it’s back.

The NHS can't do anything more for him so the family are trying to raise more than £100,000 for treatment in either London or Austria.

#GoBlueForOllie

This Friday (14th Oct), thousands of people across Buckinghamshire are wearing blue to support Ollie and his family in their plight to raise enough money to get Ollie treatment, which is likely to cost over £100,000.

Here at Mix96 we're going to dress in blue too, but we're also going to be out and about at places who are supporting the campaign and reporting back live on the radio!

So what are you waiting for? Get your blue clothes out and pledge your money! If your are taking part download our poster by clicking here. (PDF)

Bucks donates

Since we told you about Ollie's story you've really excelled yourself, pledging tens of thousands of pounds and even though the £100k has been raised, it's likely that Ollie's treatment will cost more than that, so keep giving!

Ollie's story so far

  • He wakes up with headaches and is sick a lot
  • Peter and Jane take him to the GP, who thought it was nothing to worry about
  • They insisted on an MRI scan
  • That found a mass as big as a golf ball in the back of Ollie's brain - May 2015
  • He then underwent an 8 hour op, which only removed half the tumour
  • That left him without the ability to speak, swallow, stand, walk or use his right hand
  • Then there were two more brain operations, 3 cycles of chemo, 34 sessions of radiotherapy and 7 more chemotherapy cycles.

But 12-year-old Ollie has stayed amazingly positive through all of this - nurses argued over who should treat him - and that's helped Peter and mum, Jane, to not give up.

They’ve found a potentially life-saving treatment in Austria. Ollie’s last chance.

Of course, all of these things cost money – over £100,000 in fact, so Peter and Jane set out on a massive crowdfunding campaign and that’s where Mix came in
