Child suffering from cancer forced to fly to the US for treatment NHS refused to give

A two-year-old cancer victim has been forced to fly to the US for life-saving treatment which the NHS has refused to fund because his rare condition “was not on the list.” Alexander Vinson boarded a transatlantic jet today to Oklahoma so he can get proton beam therapy for his brain tumour. The tiny boy was only able to get the vital specialist treatment because his parents Raluca and Phil Vinson managed to raise more than £140,000 from generous online well-wishers.
