Kind-hearted Risden Woods FC sent birthday presents to brave Stanley

KIND-hearted players and parents at Risden Wood Football Club have been praised for sending birthday presents to a young Harlow boy who is battling with severe illness.

Stanley Bramble has Stage 3 Ependymoma (malignant cancerous tumours).

At the beginning of December 2021, Stanley went from being diagnosed with possible migraines, to finding out he has a brain tumour.

His brave battle has been documented by his amazing family, which can be followed on their Facebook page

He is an amazing fighter and so Liam Dowers and the team at Risden Woods FC wanted to do a little something for Stanley’s birthday.

Liam said: I just wanted to say a huge thank you to every one at the club who took the time to send Stanley a birthday card, bought a little present or had a whip round for him.

I popped round to see him and drop off the cards and gifts and had a chat with Kirsty and Gareth (Mum and Dad) who welcomed me into their lovely home and told me that all the donations will go towards Stanley’s wishes to get away in the summer to Cornwall, as well as other plans.

Stanley was looking cosy wrapped up in a blanket on the sofa, probably knackered from all the visitors and birthday fun, and judging by all the balloons and banners, it looks like he had a blast! It truly was heartwarming to be a small part of it all.

We will be organising for Stanley to come along and wear his new kit as an Honorary member of our U9 Rangers squad and kick off a game for us in the near future when he is feeling up to it.

We will be hosting several events throughout the year to help raise funds for Stanley and his amazing families plans…

If you want to keep up with his story, please do give his page a follow Stanley’s Journey with Stage 3 Ependymoma where Kirsty posts regular updates.

Happy birthday Stanley! We hope you enjoy all your cards and gifts.

Lots of love from the Risden Wood Family. All proud members of Stanley’s Army

“Finally, a big shoutout to Create identitee for helping out with the kit and their donation too!”
