PLEASE Support Luana in her battle

"My name is Luana,

I was 10 years old on the 14th of November. One night I woke up with a headache and was sick. I was very ill, and my mum took me to East Surrey hospital.

After a blood test we were told i had Blood Cancer. I began a course of chemotherapy on the 16th of November. I was admitted to hospital for 2 weeks. I'm home now and going in for treatments 2 or 3 times a week. I have undergone a bone marrow test which has showed that I have "Philadelphia Chromosome-positive acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia".

I now need care 24/7. My mum has had to stop work to look after me. She was the main source of income for our family. I ask that you please help me and my family to get through this horrible time. The Doctors say i have a great chance of survival but it might take over 2 years until I am better.
Thank you,

Luana and her family are amazing and have continued to smile through this troubling time. They have shown so much courage and determination already and we want to show them support and unity of the community around them in their time of need.

Please help us in raising what we can to help take some of the stress away from their lives during this time of the year. All donations will go directly to the family to help support them throughout this difficult two year battle.
We all are gratefull for any help!

Thank you!
