Some parents who have struggled to fund LOCband treatment have been helped by the Tree Of Hope Charity.
Tree of Hope endeavours to provide assistance to families of sick and disabled children trying to raise money for specialist medical surgery, treatment, therapy and equipment. As a small charity, funds are limited, but they do everything they can to help parents achieve their fundraising goals.
The process starts with a telephone or email application from the parent/carer/guardian of the child in need of assistance. Call 01892 535525 or email [email protected]
Your case will be assessed on a case-by-case basis. The Tree of Hope will get back to you and hopefully provide the hands-on help and support that is needed.
If parents have difficulties with the funding of treatment, Headstart4babies, a UK-based charity (registered number 1112256), will provide help and advice to families and assist their fundraising efforts, using third-party providers such as JustGiving. You can e-mail them by clicking this link Headstart4babies.
If you wish to show your support for Headstart4babies, you can make a donation at their JustGiving web page.
The total cost for the LOCband treatment is: £2,050.00*
* The cost of LOCband treatment at the Harley Street clinic is £2,150 ;this reflects the inherent additional costs of running a Central London clinic.
The total cost of treatment is payable at the time of the first scan when you have decided to proceed with our LOCband treatment. There will be no further charges or any hidden costs for the duration of your baby’s treatment.
