Urgent appeal is matter of life and death for Hornchurch cancer fighter Mitchell Huth
An urgent appeal has been launched to raise �500,000 for a Hornchurch cancer fighter after he suffered a relapse.
The family and friends of Mitchell Huth, six, have been left devastated after the news that his condition has deteriorated.
Founder of charity Families Against Neuroblastoma, Linza Corp said: “It is now a matter of life and death for Mitchell.
“He is at the worse possible stage in his condition and we just need as much help as we can.”
Mitchell’s condition is believed to have been critical on Friday January 6.

“The second stage of the chemotherapy always has a bad affect on the children because this time around their bodies are really damaged.”
The family and friends are now urging the community to rally together so that he can receive lifesaving treatment in America.
In December, Leyla Belle’s in Station Road, Upminster held a fundraising day in aid of the youngster.
Mitchell was also on hand encouraging people to donate and to enjoy the day.
In February, Lorraine Hedges, Emma Lawrence and Lisa Hunt are planning to do a sponsored head shave by hairdresser Laura O’Neill.
Linza said: “We want the whole community to get behind Mitchell.
“At this stage we really need a miracle to help him because things are becoming very desperate, but it is only with the help of the community that we can turn things around for him.”
