Summer Thompson is beautiful and happy 2.5 year old little girl who has faced more in her short life than anyone should ever have to.
At just 10 months old she was diagnosed with a relatively unknown genetic condition called Noonan Syndrome and one week after her 1st birthday Summer underwent open heart surgery.
It was during routine blood tests for her Noonans that on the 19.01.2017 Summers family were given the devastating diagnosis of Acute Myeloid Leukaemia.
Summer has spent the last 9 months in hospital battling this horrendous disease.
In August Summer's very brave sister, Chloe Thompson, donated her stem cell to help Summer in her battle.
Chemo has taken its toll on Summer and he has spent time in isolation and on ICU.
Both Summer and her family have faced this battle with dignity and positivity, even fundraising for other children on Summers ward.
Sadly on the 27th of October 2017Summers family were given the devestating news that the Leukaemia had returned and the heartbreaking news that there is nothing they can do. She is not able to have stem cell treatment twice in one year and unfortunately her body just isnt strong enough to face more chemotherapy.
On Wednesday the 1st of November Summer will leave the Leeds General Infirmary and will return to her lovely family home, to spend time with her wonderful parents and sisters. They plan to spend every minute they have together making memories.
I am lucky enough to be friends with Becky, Gareth and their girls and I cannot believe such a wonderful family are having to face this heartbreaking situation.
I have set up this Go Fund Me Page to help take away any financial strain and to help the Summer and her family have days out, when Summer if strong enough, and just spend as much time together as possible without any extra pressure or worries.
I would be so grateful for any contribution and if you could please share this post.
