Ella's second fight against cancer

In January 2006, Ella Cummins who was 4 at the time was diagnosed with Ewings Sarcoma in her left femur. She received 12 months of chemotherapy and has had 15 surgeries in the past 12 years, the last surgery being in June 2017 on her leg.

Three weeks ago whilst having a routine check up with her Oncologist in Townsville, a lump on her back rib was found. After being in remission for 11 years her Oncologist reassured us that the chances of it being a tumor were highly unlikely, but suggested Ella have a CT and PET scan to be safe.

Her Oncologist called a few days later with the news we did not want to hear and wanted Ella in Brisbane for a biopsy. The biopsy came back as Ewings Sarcoma in her back rib. Ella now requires another 12 months or chemotherapy in Brisbane as well as surgery to remove the tumor and rib.

When Ella was four and having chemotherapy for 12 months there was a high chance of her being infertile but fortunately for Ella that wasn't the case. Before she starts chemotherapy they have to freeze her eggs as she will most likely be infertile after this cycle of chemotherapy.

Any donation big or small would help Ella's family relocate to Brisbane within such short notice and any other unexpected medical expenses that may occur.

On behalf of the Cummins Family your generosity will be greatly appreciated, thank-you.
