29/11/12 Event for boy, 2, battling cancer

The finishing touches are being made to a charity event organised by the parents of a little boy with cancer.

Joseph Brown, 2, is battling acute lymphoblastic leukaemia and faces ongoing treatment up to the age of 5 or 6.

The diagnosis came in April, as mum Kim Rice, 26, was heavily pregnant with Jacob, who is now four months old.

Joseph, who lives in Fiskerton, has a 98 per cent survival rate. In adults it is about 30 per cent. Miss Rice and the boys’ dad, David Brown, are organising a charity event at Fiskerton Village Hall in Ferry Road, from 12.30pm to 6pm on December 8.


The day is in aid of Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research and E38, the children’s oncology ward at the QMC.

Miss Rice said: “We are having a charity auction with loads of prizes including tickets for Nottingham Forest and Manchester United games and a signed Lincoln City shirt.

“There are also raffle prizes and 29 stalls. We’re really grateful for all the support.”
