In May our world fell apart when we got the news every single person dreads. "Cancer"
Our daughter was diagnosed with rare bone cancer "Ewing Sarcoma" we was battling with GP for months to finally be referred to A&E doctors who done an X-ray and that's when the tumor was found. We was sent to John Radcliff and spent nearly a month there before we 1st came home, with dad and brothers making the gruelling 72mile round trip every day, and missing work.
Chloë has been studying for her GCSEs and just done work experience at the hospital as she is very ambitious and wants to be a pediatrician.
Chloë still sat some GCSEs during Chemotherapy(trying not to fall asleep) she is very determined, and amazed us all with her determination.
Chloës treatment is intense as it is an aggresive cancer and needs to have chemotherapy every 2weeks in Oxford then with multiple trips for transfusion in-between as the posion put in her body to kill the cancer causes harm to her body to.
After 9 cycles of Chemotherapy she has to have radiotherapy which will be everyday for 28days in the UK.
Unfortunately the UK does not offer the best treatment for Chloë as the UK radiotherapy will cause a lot of damage to other organs surrounding her cancer, so we have been informed Chloë needs to go to the USA, which is great for Chloë being offered better treatment but unfortunately it is for 4 to 8 weeks and for obvious reasons NHS doesn't cover the whole family to go and obviously we as a family want to be together through this awful time.
Unfortunately we don't have the funds to cover this and are asking if anyone would like to help by giving a small donation we would be so grateful. This is very hard to write this as we don't ever ask for help and always do things ourselves.
Any Funds raised will help with.
*Cost to get to America
*Accomodation while over there
*Traveling to and from hospital
*Normal everyday bills still need to pay (while dad is trying to attend work as much as possible)
When we return Chloë will need to return to the intensive chemotherapy and see if surgery will ever be an option as at present they don't believe it will as the cancer is in the base of the spine and attached to the nerve sack which will cause a lot of problems, potential of paralyzing Chloë.
Any donations remaining will be donated back to a Children's cancer charity.
Thank you for taking the time to read this and any donations given are very much appreciated ❤️.
There is an Instagram page "cancerjourneyewingsarcoma" if you would like to follow our journey will update as much as possible.
