Abbey Magniks is a bright, beautiful, fun loving 8 year old girl who loves dancing, playing with friends and just having lots of fun!
OnTuesday 18th July 2017, Abbey's parents received the devestating news from their doctor that a tumour had been found in Abbey's left leg and that they believed she may have cancer.
Aiden and Joanne had an appointment that same afternoon with a specialist at the Monash Children's Cancer Centre where they were told that Abbey needed to have a blood test and an MRI. The following day, Abbey had the tests done and Jo received a call on Thursday morning that they needed to go into the Royal Children's Hospital that day to meet with the Orthopaedic Surgeon.
During that meeting Aiden and Jo received the devastating news that doctors believed their beautiful little girl did indeed have cancer.
The following Tuesday, Abbey was admitted into hospital to have further tests performed which included a biopsy and PET scan.
On Monday 31st July, doctors confirmed that Abbey did indeed have Osteosarcoma, a form of bone cancer. The next 6-12 months will involve lots of tests, chemotherapy and visits to hospital.
My name is Anita and I my husband Gordon and I had the pleasure of meeting Aiden and Jo at Pre Natal birthing classes with our first babies.
This fund is to help support Aiden and Jo financially. Aiden is a self employed electrician and so obviously if he doesn't work then he has no income to support his family. The funds will be deposited into their bank account automatically so they can use it to help pay their bills. Aiden and Jo should be able to concentrate all their energy on helping their little girl get well and not have to worry about money. Every little bit helps and if it means that Aiden can be there holding Jo and Abbey's hand through the toughest fight of their lives then please give generously for this loving family xx
