Violet’s symptoms worsened, though, so tests and medical treatments continued. By the beginning of February, she was only comfortable in two positions – neither of which were sitting or standing. Thank goodness the medical team in Windsor worked quickly to schedule a consultation at the Children’s Hospital in London (where Violet was admitted and has been for the past week), and we’ve now learned that she has a massive and very aggressive tumour that has invaded her pelvis.
There is a solid action plan in place with the oncologist, and over the next few days Violet will start chemo. The doctors anticipate the tumour will melt like butter! We are all staying positive about the road ahead, but over the next several months, Brittany and Erik will have to manage time away from their full-time jobs for their travels between Windsor and London for chemo treatments, and caring for Violet while she’s on her road to recovery.
This GoFundMe page is not being created to generate a profit, but only so Brittany any Erik are able to make ends meet and not fall behind while they’re caring for their (our) baby girl and unable to work. If extra money is raised, it will be donated to Ronald McDonald House Charities Southwestern Ontario – which has allowed them to stay by Violet’s side throughout her time at the Children’s Hospital.
If you can afford to contribute a few dollars to help Brittany and Erik through this difficult time, please do. If you can’t, please help by sharing their story. It will be very much appreciated!
