FUNDRAISING has gone into over-drive to send a Chorley toddler to America for life-saving treatment.

Well wishers have already pledged thousands of pounds after being touched by the story of little Corey Ashcroft.

The two-year-old was diagnosed with Stage IV neuroblastoma, a rare and aggressive form of cancer, in April.

He is currently undergoing gruelling treatment at the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital, but his family are hoping to raise enough funds to send him to America – where the medicine is more advanced.

Since the Eccleston youngster’s plight was revealed in the Guardian hundreds of people have thrown their weight behind cause and a staggering £50,000 has been raised in just two weeks.
