On 16/6/16 my son went to wake his 7 year old daughter Charlotte for school. Charlotte was unresponsive, blue in colour and her eyes were rolled to the side of her head. This is every parents nightmare. Charlotte had apparently suffered a severe seizure but the cause was unknown. In September last year after months of tests, Charlotte had to have a biopsy to try and determine why this occurred. Charlotte now has been diagnosed with a very rare brain tumour. After many visits to the RCH the doctors are going try and shrink the tumour with a trial based chemotherapy which will begin next week for approximately 12 months. Periodic MRIs will determine whether treatment is successful and thus determines whether the doctors can attempt partial or total resection of the tumour. If this occurs it will leave Charlotte with a deficit on the left hand side of her body. Extensive physio will help but Charlotte will have to wear a leg brace and her fine motor skills will be affected. Brendan and Nicole have 2 other little girls, Mackenzie 5 and Isabelle 3. Brendan is a very hard working dad but unfortunately he works for himself and when he doesn't work he doesn't get paid. Unfortunately they live 70 klms from the hospital so the cost of travel every week is expensive . My wish is to raise enough money so Brendan and Nicole can concentrate on spending quality time with their family and not have to worry about bills, travel expenses, house payments etc during this next 2 year battle.
