Sierra's Journey

Sierra was diagnosed with Leukemia on 7 August. In the horrible week that followed, she was diagnosed with Pre B Acute  Lymphoblastic Leukaemia. It is treatable and curable, but it's going to be a long, tough journey.

Intersive treatment has started, and will continue for 6 months or so, and be followed by ongoing treatment for up to 3 years.

Paul and Trish are there by Sierra's side, but with their other little ones just 2 (Madde) and 1 (Arlia), it's going to be a juggle just to look after 3 pre-school aged children. Work is going to have a be a low priority while Sierra undergoes treatment.

This page is for people who generously offered to assist financially. If it suits you better to support us by providing a meal, you can do so here:  www.mealtrain.com/trains/wom3z0

If you would like to give a gift, know that it will be used to look after Sierra and keep the family well and housed and as normal as possible.

Trish has also set up a Facebook page with updates.

Here is a bit more of the story, from Trish:
After feeling unwell and not quite right for weeks Paul and I pieced together her symptoms and with the help of Dr google came up with Leukaemia. We didn't want to be right, it can't be right, right? When hearing her story a good GP ordered a blood test and xray. Within 3 hours of the test being taken we got the call.

Our fears confirmed. Since Monday 7 August Sierra has been at Royal Childrens Hospital undergoing surgery and tests to narrow in on the specific type of Leukaemia and treatment required to best combat it.
