Rilmac Helping Support Demi Knight

Rilmac Helping Support Demi Knight

Demi Knight is an 11-year-old girl from Louth in Lincolnshire.  In December 2015 she was diagnosed with a brain tumour. The tumour was successfully removed and followed with radiotherapy and chemotherapy until February 2017.  Then, in March 2018 the tumour returned!  Unfortunately, the NHS are unable to provide further treatment as radiation and chemo-therapy is all that is available, and due to the high doses already received, these cannot be used in Demi’s case.

Demi’s family have discovered the Burzynski Clinic in Houston, Texas, which offers hope through using Antineoplaston Therapy.  However, this Treatment comes at a cost.  In order for Demi to benefit from this treatment, and have an opportunity to live a normal, happy life, her family need to raise £205,000 and have turned to the kind and generous public for support.

Rilmac Scaffolding Managing Director, and Louth resident, Des Booth has been moved by Demi’s story and is determined to raise money for her and her family.  Through his contacts Des contacted Lincoln City Football Club, who have generously provided a signed shirt, which has been made available to the highest bidder.  Rilmac Scaffolding customers are already supporting Des and the bids have quickly reached three figures.  Des is looking to raise as much as he can for Demi and has been reaching out to customers and suppliers in the construction world.

If you would like to help Des raise some much needed funds towards Demi’s treatment in the US please contact him directly at to make a bid.
