Crowdfunder for Coventry girl Hallie's life-saving treatment ticks towards £1million

Coventry Editorial 12th Sep, 2023   0

BRAVE Coventry youngster Hallie Reeve now needs less than £170,000 to reach the £1million target required for life-saving treatment.

City youngster Hallie needs the cash to pay for her to travel to America for a CAR T-cell therapy trial- the best option for her to beat Juvenile myelomonocytic leukaemia (JMML), a rare type of cancer.

Hallie’s aunt Hannah Dugdale started a GoFundMe for her niece ten weeks ago and it has since raised over £830,000 to fund the 22-month-olds treatment.

After being diagnosed aged just eight months last summer, Hallie has undergone chemotherapy, two stem cell transplants and blood transfusions, all with no success.

On Sunday, Ernesford Grange Netball club held a sporting fun day to raise much-needed cash for Hallie.

A netball and football tournament was held at the event and people could also get barbecue food or have an ice cream.




A raffle was also held at the tournament.

Another kind gesture saw a Coventry City supporter donate four tickets to watch the Sky Blues thrilling 3-3 draw with Watford as raffle prizes.


Hallie’s family ran the raffle for the tickets, which included a meal and seats in an executive box, on social media.

The family are all lifelong Sky Blues supporters.
