***22nd of December Update ***
We have just had a devastating quote from Seattle... the price of the treatment has tripled since September when Katie's friend received similar life saving treatment. This is because they have improved the treatment to reduce side effects by 50%, which is positive medically, however it has made our fund raising challenge greater. Please keep sharing and supporting, you have helped raise over £78k in only 4 weeks so we keep fighting and will do this for Katie! ***
Katie Wright, the kindest funniest most beautiful girl you will ever meet, suffering from the ugliest disease known to man, for the SECOND time!
Katie has leukaemia initally diagnosed in 2013, after nearly 3 years of treatment endless operations and procedure she finally finished treatment 7 months ago. We had a huge end of treatment party to celebrate the end of the worse part of our lives. All Katie's friends and family had the best night of their lives, the pain suffering was finally over and we had our Katie alive!
Batman loving, pink wearing, true modern day girl, with four brothers who know their place! She's adored by everyone, so gentle and caring. If your seen at a party with your hands free, she will bring over a cake, to ensure your looked after! A true heart of gold.
Yesterday we got the devastating news it was back, after we fought so hard, after we thought it was all over! It was back!
Unfortunately relapse is not as easy to battle as initial diagnosis and we have been informed that the best chance of having our beautiful angel survive, is to have immunotherapy treatment in Seattle, but only one child per month in the UK are accepted for the life saving treatment just 5% of all children's relapses, due to the cost.
We have been informed we need to gather funds incase we are not the "lucky ones" chosen for this treatment to save our girl.
I can not believe Katie's life comes down to money! Is this for real? But here we are.
Please help save Katie's life! Donate anything you can, all funds will go to help another child with cancer if Katie gets chosen.
