Henry Dylan Allen was just two years old in February 2012 when he was diagnosed with a terrible childhood cancer: Stage 4, High Risk, MYCN Amplified Neuroblastoma. Hopefully, you will know his story – he is a local superhero.
Henry went through two years of gruelling tests, painful treatments and surgeries yet Henry smiled. His happiness and bravery were astonishing.
‘Henry’s Happiness’ won the hearts of our community and the fundraising began – fundraising initially for treatment abroad. Henry’s condition deteriorated and there were no more options. Henry came home and sadly on the 20th October 2013 superhero Henry gained his angel wings. Gone but never forgotten.
But, as with all superheroes, Henry had dreamt BIG and he made his Mummy and Daddy “pinkie promise” to follow his dreams and help the other children. The Henry Allen Trust (THAT) was born.
