Major fundraising effort underway to help Falkirk teenager
Written by centralfmnews on December 3, 2019
The family of a young girl in Falkirk, who has a rare form of cancer, are trying to raise almost £250,000 for their daughter’s treatment in New York.
13-year-old Ashlee Easton, who goes to Braes High School, suffers from High Risk Neuroblastoma – which she’s been battling for over seven years.
The vaccine is not NHS funded, which is why the family’s fundraising efforts are so crucial.

Over £80,000 has already been raised – but her family need the final total to be reached by February 2020.
Ashlee is currently undergoing immune therapy, which it’s hoped will prevent another relapse.
