Last week my friends world came crashing down when after they took their little 5yr old girl to the Doctors with some leg pain and unexplained bruising. Within 24hrs they were sat in Manchester Royal Infirmary being told that their precious little girl has Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia as you can imagine the shock and heartache has waved through all her family and friends.
Amy was whisked into surgery to have a Lumbar punch and chemo injected into her spine along with bone marrow removed from her pelvis. The sickness and pain for little Amy is unbearable and heartbreaking to see. She is now having intense Chemotherapy daily and on the slow and long road to recovery having to have Chemotherapy now for the next 2 and a half years.
They have been through so much in the past few years with Amy's Mum Faye suffering from Epilepsy having seizures almost daily. Faye ended up having brain surgery to remove her right temple lobe and still in recovery herself.
They also have 2 other children aged 11 & 8 who have had to be strong for their Mum and now for their baby sister.
I'm wanting to see if we can raise a little money to maybe give them something to look forward to and take a family break away when Amy is in recovery and to help relieve the costs of having to live away from home.
If you have a spare pound or two it would be greatly appreciated.
All funds donated from this campaign will be withdrawn by Susan Gardner Faye's Mum who has set up a separate bank account for Amy Rose. The donations will be used for Amy's needs throughout her recovery and to send them on a little break away as a family once Amy is well enough to do so. Xx
