Aduara is only 9 years old and was given news that no child or parent should ever have to receive, They went to emergency complaining of headaches and nausea and soon after the visit she was airlifted straight to Vancouver Children’s Hospital.
Aduara and her family received a report that their 9 year old daughter was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour also know as DIPG Cancer that is affecting her entire nervous system and her ability to thrive.
She loves to dance and laugh like any other little girl her age. She is beautiful and talented and a shining star in their home and in school life. Isabelle and Richard Cayford have 4 beautiful daughters the youngest of which is Aduara
The family of 6 reside in Fort St John and they had to uproot their entire life to the Children's Hospital in Vancouver for care and comfort.
At this time Isabelle has had to shut down her family owned salon which was a big part of the families livelihood. Having these unexpected circumstances the family is having a hard time dealing with expenses and the sheer trauma of this experience.
This family needs our help by asking for any kind of donation , because every little bit helps go towards to help support the family be comfortable during this trying time.
There is still no effective treatment and Only 10% of children with DIPG survive for 2 years following their diagnosis, and less than 1% survive for 5 years. The median survival time is 9 months from diagnosis
