TOUCHLINE ARE PLEASED TO SUPPORT JOHN SMEETH

OF HOCKLEY COMMUNITY CENTRE, WHO IS ORGANISING THIS FUNDRAISING EVENING FOR HIS YOUNG RELATIVE, SUPER RUBY

 

Ruby is a brave 2 year old little girl, who was diagnosed in December 2018 with a type of cancer called High Risk Neuroblastoma. A large (12cm) tumour was found in her abdomen, and after many tests, biopsies and MRI scans, a decision to start an intensive treatment protocol was made. She has started intensive chemotherapy, which she has every 10 days, in hopes that it will make the tumour suitable for surgical removal.

This is not the end of the journey for Ruby however. She has 18 months worth of treatment ahead of her, with stem cell transplants, a period of very high dose chemotherapy, radiotherapy and immunotherapy. Following this, Ruby will need to travel abroad to have further treatment, and funds are required to cover the cost of the treatment and travel.

Neuroblastoma is rare and very aggressive form of childhood cancer, and is notoriously difficult to treat, due to its fast growing nature and very high chances of relapse. Approximately 50-60% of kids do relapse, and then less than 1 in 10 make it through. Unfortunately Ruby has a genetic variation, called MYCN amplification which shows an overall very poor prognosis

of a 30% survival rate.

The follow up treatment abroad, is designed to reduce her

chances of relapsing, and would significantly increase her chances of survival. This treatment is only available in the US, but is

showing very promising results in children with the same

diagnosis as little Super Ruby.

SEATING

We offer a limited number of seats at tables for most gigs. These are allocated to the Seated Ticket holders to save having to arrive early

to ensure a seat.

The seats always sell out very quickly, so if you need or prefer a seat we would recommend that you purchase your tickets early to avoid disappointment. 

Only Seated Ticket holders will have a seat - so PLEASE... avoid disappoinment and

do not buy a Standing Ticket, expecting to be able to find a chair at the gig.

A link to full details of our Seating system is below.

Standing tickets are usually still available once the seats are all sold.
