Roisin & Eve The Warrior Princesses Fundraiser

Hi I'm Caitriona Kenny a Freelance Photographer in Tipperary Town and Correspondent/ Press Photographer for the Nationalist newspaper Clonmel. There are two little girls and their families that I would love to raise funds for... both Róisin and Eve have different types of cancer. It must be horrendous for their parents to watch their little ones suffering - something I'm sure, none of us would want to go through. It would be great if you would donate to raise funds to affray the costs for their families. Thank you for supporting this cause. Let's rock this!
Little Róisín Price from Tipperary Town was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (A.L.L.) in February 2015 when she was three and a half years old. She received a combination of different chemotherapy drugs given orally, intravenously, intramuscular and intrathecal, which is done using lumbar puncture. There were five phases of Róisín’s treatment: induction, consolidation, interim maintenance, delayed intensification and maintenance. Altogether the treatment programme took two and a half years with another two years maintenance. Róisín’s mother Cora was devastated by the news that her daughter had relapsed Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia.  Róisín completely finished treatment in July 2017 but she has now relapsed with the same cancer type that I understand it’s harder to treat. Róisín started chemotherapy again and is currently in treatment. At the time, Cora posted on FB. “Today was really hard. This phase of treatment seems to have hit Róisín with a bang and we’re not even a week in and her appetite is gone. She has had lots of nausea and she’ll probably need a transfusion this week and lots of meltdowns on top of that. It's so heartbreaking that she can't tell me how or what she's feeling but tomorrow is another day and she is fast asleep… hopefully a good night’s rest will help — feeling broken.”
Eve Creamer, known as Eve The Warrior Princess, is from Emly Co. Tipperary and has an extremely rare, skin condition called Congenital Melanocytic Naevi (CMN) causing more than 50% of her body to be covered in moles/birthmarks. An MRI scan at 6 days old showed there was abnormal skin on her brain and spine too (Neurocutaneous Melanocytosis NCM).
Eve then developed hydrocephalus and epilepsy at 10 weeks old as a result of this and required brain surgery to insert a shunt. At 3 months old Eve's parents, Sabrina and Robbie, were dealt a further blow, doctors told them that the abnormal skin on Eve's brain was likely cancerous and would be very difficult to treat. More surgery to take a biopsy from her spine confirmed this to be true. Eve started on oral chemotherapy in May which Sabrina & Robbie give her at home every morning. They have been told the best they can hope for is that it slows down progression, there is no cure for her cancer. Over the last couple of months Eve has needed 5 more surgeries due to shunt blockages and infections, all complications related to her condition, resulting in lots of time away from home, even recently spending her first birthday in Temple Street. Eve is the happiest and most lovable little girl and it breaks her family’s heart to see all this happen to her.
