FRI 24th UPDATE:

It is with a broken heart that we update this Give A Little page.

In the early hours of this morning (Friday 24th May) Ants passed away peacefully, with Hayley and baby Zoe at his side.

They'd had a beautiful final day together. Music was playing, time was spent with family, and lots of cuddles were had with Zoe. Hayley and Ants got lots of precious time together too.

Hayley and Ants have been blown away by the kindness and generosity, love and support from everyone. There are no words to express their love and gratitude to you all.

Please pass this page on to anyone who would like to donate. Funds will go towards allowing Hayley some much needed time without the pressure of paying bills to grieve and raise darling 8 week old Zoe.

Hayley, Ants and little baby Zoe need our help.

Over easter, and four weeks after of the birth of their daughter, Anthony and Hayley ended up in the hospital receiving news that no one wants to hear. Least of all brand new parents. Anthony has stage 4 cancer and the prognosis is not good. But he is determined to fight to be around to watch his daughter grow up. Alongside urgent chemotherapy they also plan to investigate all alternative options.

But while he undergoes treatment and Hayley supports him and raises their infant daughter there is no income coming in. Both Hayley and Anthony are freelancers therefore they have no paid sick leave.

Hayley and Ants are so widely loved and there are so many people asking how they can help. Alleviating the financial worry of paying basic bills so that Ants can focus on getting well, and so they can spend as much time together as a family as possible is the best way we can all help.

Please donate something, anything at all, so that they can put it towards easing the stress of the very scary situation they find themselves in.

Thank you
