Three-year-old Harri Stickler, from Aberdare, was diagnosed with Leukaemia in 2018, and on February 15th this year his parents were told nothing more could be offered to him in this country.

The last available option given to the family was to fly him to either Singapore or the USA. However, the amount needed for the treatment is £1m.

A GoFundMe page was set up by Rachael Mogford (Harri’s Mother’s sister-in-law) four weeks ago, and £87,000 has been raised already.

The link to his GoFundMe page was projected onto the Principality stadium by Laserpromo.

His mum, Bethan Morgan, said: “Harri was diagnosed when he was just six months old and has been treated at Cardiff and Great Ormond Street Hospital ever since. 

“This is our final hope. Harri will be four in June, and I want him to blow out four candles on his cake.”

Harri was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia, a type of cancer that affects white blood cells and requires immediate treatment.

Lymphoblastic Leukaemia is the most common type of Leukaemia to affect children.

Rachael Mogford, 26, said: “Harri is the most amazing little boy ever. He’s so strong, brave and just smiles constantly.

“He’s a character. He’s got the best personality ever.

“He has been through so much, and we will try anything to get him to where he needs to be.”

When asked how the goal of £1m could be reached, Rachael said: “I think the fundraiser just needs to reach the right person, that’s all.

“We’re doing the best that we can in spreading awareness and the support is obviously amazing.

“There’s loads of amazing people out there, so we just need his story to reach the right one.”
