Rupert's Revenge

Fundraising campaign for pioneering treatment

Fundraising campaign for pioneering treatment

Rupert Beckett, from Bridgnorth, is 6 years old.


For the past three years, he has been undergoing intensive cancer treatment for  stage 4 High Risk Neuroblastoma, a rare childhood cancer which affects only 100 children a year in the UK.


Rupert calls the cancer his ‘crocodile’, and has remained full of energy despite long spells of treatment.


There is no longer any effective treatment remaining in this country, but the best chance Rupert has of defeating his crocodile is via pioneering immunotherapy in America.


Fundraisers are now aiming to raise £750,000 for ‘Rupert’s Revenge’, to allow him to undergo vital treatment abroad, a campaign which has already been supported by Wolves Women.


Wolves Wishes invited Rupert and his family to Molineux to enjoy the final game of the season against Preston from the comfort of an Executive Box, and to go pitchside at half time to raise awareness of their campaign.


Former Wolves promotion heroes Jody Craddock and Kevin Foley presented Rupert with a gift of an Ipad Mini from Wolves Wishes and some Wolves kit for him and his family.


There was also an added bonus in the form of a generous donation from Wolves supporter James Britton whom, earlier in the season, had pledged to donate £500 to Wolves Wishes if the team stayed in the Championship.


James stayed true to his word from that moment of frustration, and kindly handed over the £500 which will go towards the fund to try and get Rupert to America. A great gesture.


We wish Rupert all the very best in defeating his crocodile!
