�300,000 appeal launched for cancer boy Mitchell Huth, 6 from Hornchurch
A charity has launched an appeal to raise �300,000 for treatment for a brave little boy suffering from a aggressive form of childhood cancer.
Families Against Neuroblastoma want to raise the funds for Mitchell Huth, 6 from Wingletye Lane, Hornchurch who is battling against neuroblastoma.
Founder of the charity Linza Corp said: “It is a matter of life and death for Mitchell as we need to have this funds so that he can have treatment abroad that is not available on the NHS.”
Mitchell is now receiving UK antibodies on a trial run but the treatment has a high percentage of children who relapse after having the antibodies.
The UK has no relapse protocol so the funds raised through the appeal will be used for Mitchell to receive treatment in America if he suffers a relapse.

Linza said: “The benefits of this is that if he does relapse he will be able to go abroad and to get treatment which will put him in a far better position.
“There have been kids who have not been able to get the relapse treatment and things have not turned out so well, so we do not want that for Mitchell.”
