Rhianna is a beautiful 10 year old girl. Like most girls her age, Rhianna loves music, dancing, drama and Girl Guides. In April this year, she couldn`t lift her arm up from a very painful lump in her arm pit. 3 courses of antibotics and a couple of stays in hospital, showed that the lumps were still there and more of them. Discovering them in her other armpit and groin area. She had a biopsy done on the 12th of June and the results were given on the 18th of June.
Rhianna has been diagnosed with Anaplastic large cell lymphoma. The causes are unknown. It is not due to infection and cannot be passed on to others. This is why the antibotics didn`t work.
Anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL) is a rare type of non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
Please be aware Rhianna has a long road ahead. Currently she is having more CT scans, before surgery and then Chemo.
Rhianna does having a loving family, with 2 younger siblings and her mum is 26 weeks pregnant. The shock of this news is just so overwhelming at this time. To comprehend all living costs.
I am hoping to set this page up to try and help her family with all the extra expenses of fuel, car parking, food ect.
Any money donated to this wonderful, strong - willed young girl would be greatly appreciated and will go a long way.
