Welcome to Edie's Fight! Our beautiful Edie is just 6 years old and such a smiley, happy-go lucky little girl. She loves performing, including playing football. She is a gentle soul and is loved so much by all her family, especially mummy and daddy, brother Charlie and their dog Coco. Unfortunately, on 27th November 2019 life changed forever as the family received the devastating news that Edie has an aggressive Brain Tumour called DIPG. As you can imagine, this is truly the kind of news that brings the entire family to its knees and leaves them fearful for the future. But, while they will face many physical, emotional and financial challenges, the gloves are off and the entire family are ready for the fight that lies ahead! They are an extremely close and proud family so the decision to start the fund is not an easy one, but they are going to need financial support to fight and get the best medical help and treatment possible, to make sure Edie wins her battle.
Any money raised will initially help with any additional medical visits and treatment, physical therapy and possible clinical trial logistics which is something the family are already exploring. We are aiming to raise as much money as possible and by donating, no matter how big or small, you will help ease the financial burden on the family so that they can just focus on being present with Edie and face this challenge head on. All money raised will go directly to the Jackson family and the care of Edie and they are so unbelievably grateful.
Any money not used by the family will be donated to a suitable DIPG charity to raise much needed awareness and work towards a future where children and their families do not have to suffer at the hands of this awful disease.
