Deannahs journey with retinoblastoma

This is purely for my 3 children (2 with special needs)

In September 2013 my beautiful 2 year old daughter was diagnosed with bilateral retinoblastoma ( tumours in both eyes) sadly she lost her left eye and is needing ongoing medical check ups like MRI's and EUA's to monitor her for new growths ( she just finished another lot of chemo because the Drs found a new tumour ) , in order to get these check ups done we need to fly from Darwin to Sydney , pats pays for our flights and subsidises our accommodation , but we still have to pay what's left after the subsidy and for our own food and other medical expenses ex: medications Pain Relief etc which can be upwards of $500 per week , because of deannahs health issues I cannot work nor can I put her in Childcare because she is immune suppressed , I also have an older daughter (Tatiana ) who has level 3 autism and a severe global developmental delay , we are receiving special funding for her but it does not cover child care fees and with the constant trips to Sydney it's getting extremely hard to be able to afford To keep her in Childcare and pay my bills as well as paying foR the trips . now my new baby alexis is underwatch for retinoblastoma as well and its becoming financially stressfull . i am suffering from severe anxiety issues coming to terms that alexis may have it too. I wouldn't normally go out on a limb like this but times are getting hard and at this stage i have nowhere to turn , I Really need to keep Tatiana in Childcare and keep up with deannahs medicals , my children are my number one priority I just want to give them a good start to life. the money that is raised will be used for accommodation Food medication and child care fees i can't offer anything in return but my Gratitude and and how deeply thankful I really am to everyone that has helped , Thankyou in advance halee, Tatiana and Deannah and alexis
