My name is Audrina and I am 4 years old! I have High risk neuroblastoma and have been battling this disease since July 2018!
Even with all this intense treatment children with high risk neuroblastoma have a very high risk of relapse with more than 50% of tumours returning. When relapse occurs there is only a 1 in 10 chance of survival.
Previously we were fundraising for the Vaccine in New York. However, recent events have led to a change of plan.
Audrina began immunotherapy in June 2019. She had a severe adverse reaction to this which meant she could not continue with this course of treatment. Immunotherapy is made from the drug GD2. Which is what the Vaccine is made from too.
As Audrina has a severe allergy to GD2 we have made the decision to now take part in the vaccine trial as it would be too dangerous.
We are now raising money for in case she relapses. If Audrina does relapse we need funds for medical trials to try and cure it. There are currently trials in New York and Barcelona. Any money raised will be saved in a trust fund for 5 years. After 5 years, if Audrina has not required the money it will be donated to neuroblastoma research or another child with neuroblastoma that requires treatment abroad.
Many thanks for your continued support in keeping Audrina dancing, or bouncing if your a Ram ;-) xxx
