Emergency plea to try and save North Walsham baby Ryan Wright after cancer relapse
An emergency appeal has been launched to try to save the life of a desperately-ill north Norfolk baby who has only been given days or weeks to live.
The charity supporting Ryan Wright, from North Walsham, has issued an urgent plea for a minimum of £500,000 to fly him to America to have a brain tumour removed.
Little Ryan, who will be two in July, underwent extensive treatment for the rare childhood cancer neuroblastoma last year and seemed to be making a good recovery.
But he became ill again earlier this week and was rushed to Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge.
Yesterday his parents, Hayley and Darren Wright, of Fairview Road, North Walsham, were given the devastating news that Ryan had relapsed.
