PARENTS who flew their son to Mexico for potentially lifesaving cancer treatment have enjoyed time with him on a ranch relaxing between trips to hospital - a trip gifted to the family by one of their supporters.

Charlie Ilsley, 13, from Emmer Green flew to Mexico with his mum Toni and dad Mark in June for Immunotherapy treatment.

Toni hopes it will be the “third time lucky” for her son who was diagnosed with medulloblastoma, the most high-grade brain tumour found in children when he was eight years old.

Since arriving in Mexico the family have visited a ranch which Toni described as “the most beautiful place I have ever been”.

The family were treated to a weekend at the ranch as a gift from one of Charlie’s supporters.

Whilst there the family rode horses, swam in a heated pool and relaxed in a hot tub overlooking a waterfall.

After visiting, they were invited back by the owner for a second trip.

A pink rose named Charlie’s rosa was bought as a gift by the Ilsley’s for the owner who then helped him plant it at the ranch.

The family have been invited back again this weekend before they travel back to England next week.

Speaking earlier this week, Toni explained Charlie had one more week of treatment and a scan on Thursday (July 9).

She said the doctor treating Charlie “isn’t expecting the scan to show too much as this treatment takes a while to work but he wants a baseline scan so he can compare in a couple of months”.

Toni said they will continue to fundraise so they can return to Mexico for the first scan meaning they need to raise money for flights, a few days accommodation and the scan itself.

Charlie has undergone countless operations and even more hospital trips around the world and this year his family were told chemotherapy had not been effective and Charlie was given just months to live.

The Chronicle has launched a campaign to support his family’s efforts.
