Hello Gorgeous people,
PLEASE HELP US MAKE SPECIAL MEMORIES
This is my beautiful daughter Olivia, 6 weeks after turning 18 Olivia was diagnosed with a rare, very aggressive pediatric cancer called Alveolar
This is a cancer that attacks the soft tissues. Unfortunately, Olivia's cancer had already spread to several sites in her body including sacrum, pelvis,spine, knee, first starting in the rectum and buttock tissues, because of this it's extremely hard to treat and control.
Olivia receives all her cancer care at the RVI in Newcastle,and I get to stay with her every step of her treatment.
Olivia has already had spinal surgery, to remove a tumour and vertebrae in her neck, has had 9 rounds of Chemotherapy and 30 Radiotherapies. The treatments have horrendous side effects and yet, throughout her treatment, Olivia has been so courageous and brave and has never lost her smile and amazing sense of humour, as her mother I couldn't be any prouder.
Unfortunately as you can imagine, cancer has put a massive strain on our family, including Olivia's brother Bailey, 19 years old. He has had to fend for himself for most of this year as I am a single parent and have had to be with Olivia.
The reason I am starting this go fund me campaign is because, with having to take the last 6 months off work, I am now broke and just can't make ends meet, financially. I am falling behind with the house payments and what weighs even heavier on my heart is not being able to have special times, days out, a weekend away etc.
I would be eternally grateful if you could donate, doesn't matter how small,any amount will help my little family create some special memories.
Olivia has a very uncertain future and we need to make the time we have count...... Now!
Thank you for reading this and all the support we have received so far, it means so much xxx
Lots of love Tracy ( Olivia's mum )
