A GOUROCK mum is organising a charity bash to celebrate the end of her brave son’s three-year long leukaemia treatment.

Campaigner Gill Mowat has sold out Greenock Town Hall for her ladies night to mark a milestone for seven-year-old Nathan.

Nathan, who is a little Tele Community Champion, was diagnosed with the life-threatening illness when he was just four. 

Since then Gill has led the Tele-backed Glow Gold campaign to raise awareness of the desperate need for more research and better treatment.

Now the people of Inverclyde have rallied round her charity ball in support of the new Schiehallion Appeal launched by the Glasgow Sick Kids Hospital.

Delighted Gill said: “The response has been phenomenal — we even have a waiting list.

“Nathan is due to finish treatment in January, and as way of a celebration and as a thank you, I wanted to host an End of Treatment Ladies day.

“I wanted to raise money for the Schiehallion Appeal at the Glasgow Sick Kids Hospital, where Nathan has been treated. 
“Everyone at the hospital has been amazing.”

Moorfoot Primary school boy Nathan was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia in August 2014.

As Nathan fought the disease with a big smile on his face, he inspired people across Inverclyde to raise money.

He has continued to go to school, play football and take part in his clubs like the Anchor Boys all the time undergoing treatment, despite repeated stays in hospital.

Earlier this year, Nathan and Gill were asked to start the Glasgow Kiltwalk alongside Sir Tom Hunter.

One of Gill’s main priorities is to raise awareness of the desperate need for more funding into childhood cancer.

She said: “It is very close to my heart. The Schiehallion Appeal aims to fund clinical trials, a subject I am so passionate about.”

Nathan’s treatment is due to finish on January 12.

The fundraiser will take place on Saturday March 3.
