Lucy the most beautiful thoughtful caring charming 5 year old little girl adored by her mother an father Sarah and Dwayne and 5 siblings Conor Abbie Carter Jacob and baby Theo. August 6th the whole family’s world fell apart after an emergency trip to temple street resulted in a heartbreaking diagnosis. Lucy was diagnosed with DIPG (diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma) a rare and aggressive brain tumor located in an area deep in the pons of the brain that controls critical bodily functions. Her parents have been given the awful news that Lucy has only 6-9 months to live. There is no treatments available for this type of tumor and surgery is not an option ,radiotherapy is only a palliative option. Lucy had emergency surgery to have a shunt in place to drain fluid causing the pressure on her brain and has relief of some of the symptoms. Lucy is at home with her family and feeling okay her heartbroken parents , family , extended family and friends are helping in every way they can. Our aim is to relieve the financial pressure of the family’s awful situation as Lucy’s father has had to come out of work To focus on Lucy’s care. We would like to raise funds to help them on this journey to have some special times with Lucy as time is so precious. We want to focus on making this journey for them as special and memorable as we can.
Any donations no matter how small are greatly appreciated We are also in the process of looking for alternative treatments thanks so much for all the support so far.
