Jaydabella's Medical Expenses

My beautiful 15 year old sister has been diagnosed with an extremely rare disease called Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis (LCH).
Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis is a type of cancer that can damage tissue or cause tumours to form in one or more places in the body - and unfortunately her first tumour is in her brain. She has to fly from Airlie Beach in North Queensland, to the Lady Cilento Children's Hospital in Brisbane on the 12th of November, for surgery on the 14th. The surgeons are hopeful that they can remove the brain tumour and she will get back to her regular routine, however LCH has no cure. This means that at any given time, another tumour may form in any part of her body. Because this condition is so uncommon, doctors aren’t too sure how to best treat it with aftercare, but it will be part of her life forever. We are relying on the generosity of others to help fund this unforeseen trip. Your generosity would help to cover emergency flights, accomodation, food, travel, and to help Jaydabella transition back into a normal life with ongoing appointments and treatments. Please share this with family and friends. No one should ever have to go through anything like this - and coming from such a small town with a great community, I’m positive we can all pull together and power through this. I’ve added a link to more information about LCH, as we are all learning about this together.
