Amys Journey

I am raising money for my 24 year old niece Amy, who has been diagnosed with a rare synovial sarcoma cancer of the liver and diaphragm.

Amy is going to America in a couple of weeks for proton beam radiotherapy, a procedure that isn't available in the UK yet. By having the treatment in America, Amy's kidney, lung and liver function will be saved, rather than compromised if this was in the UK. Whilst the prognosis for this condition is not great and the chances of this particular cancer coming back are high, going to America could make a significant difference for Amy and Allie's future.

When diagnosed, Amy's dream job and new home were compromised, and the future is uncertain at present.

She has a young baby, Allie, who isn't going to be able to go to America with her for the full 3 months. Any money donated is to go towards the costs of travel, accommodation, daily living costs and more importantly, getting Allie out there a couple of times for a visit.
