A toddler with leukaemia who inspired a mammoth fundraising campaign has died.
Stanley Dalton, of Carlisle, was first diagnosed with leukaemia in March 2019.
He had his first bone marrow transplant in August of that year, but in October, his family were told he had relapsed.
He began a trial of a drug which appeared to get his leukaemia under control and made him eligible for a second transplant.
However, in June last year, the family was told that the leukaemia had returned and they began a campaign to raise £500,000 to take him to Singapore for a medical trial, not available in the UK.
Thanks to the support of the community, the family raised the cash.
However, today, Stan’s mum Georgia Brecken said: “I just wanted to let you all know that our beautiful brave Stan passed away yesterday afternoon.
“We are all absolutely devastated. He was the best boy ever and took everything in his stride with a smile on his face. We are so proud of him.
“I will update the page with what’s happened over the last few weeks in time but I just wanted to let you all know and thank you for everything you have all done for us.”
