Fundraiser for sick Irish child in Philadelphia
Wee Oscar Appeal to fight childhood cancer
Oscar Knox is a brave four year old from Ireland fighting a rare form of aggressive childhood cancer which affects 1 in every 100,000 children.
At great expense “wee Oscar” and his family recently traveled to Philadelphia for ground breaking treatment at CHOP. Although Oscar and his family have returned to Ireland, the campaign continues.
To help his family with the incredible costs, a fundraising event is taking place on Sunday December 2nd at Tir Na Nog in Philadelphia. Family and friends of “wee Oscar” continue to rally behind this brave little boy, Oscars’ father said of their time in Philadelphia:
"We want to say that we have been overwhelmed by the incredible support we have received in Philadelphia. The Irish community has really pulled together for us and we are immensely grateful. We can’t thank them all enough. We couldn’t have imagined in our wildest dreams that we would have met so many kind and friendly people in such a short time here. To hear that the Irish community out here are going to host fundraising events to help raise money for Oscar is amazing!!" said Stephen Knox, father of wee Oscar.
