#TeamAmelia

On the 10th of July 2019 my life as a mother to My Beautiful daughter Amelia❤ changed forever .. At only 4 years old
My princess was diagnosed with a rare childhood Cancer (Rhabdomyosarcoma) .... it all started when the little lady had an itchy eye and thought it was just her hair had annoyed it or she had done something silly whilst playing and hurt it or maybe rubbed her eye whilst playing outside in the garden..
Over the coming days her eye got sorer and we had to take more action and went back to hospital .. and after various scans (CT and MRI ) they seen shadows which till then we didn't know how severe this was going to be ..and after a biopsy was done and we got results......My world just stopped dead that day .. when you hear story's of children and familys .. even relatives that have had this horrific news ... it does really hurt and it's a Cliche but it'll never happen to me it's always someone else .... nah .. no one is spared ... no matter how young or old .. it broke me as a mother to hear that my angel my best friend Amelia❤ has been diagnosed with this horrible disease ... but as of the 29th of July at 5:45pm this little angel of mine started chemotherapy on a 9 week course to be administered on mondays every 3rd week being a massive dose which has really taken my best friend from being an absolutely amazing little woman who would always make the whole world around her shine .. to the chemo and the cancer taking my baby girl to a place no child should be and being her mummy watching this I cannot start to say what I feel ... I'm trying to .. but I've found strength and positivity... I suppose as a parent I have nothing that means anything apart from my beautiful daughter. It has been the hardest struggle and we thought we were almost at the end of this road .. Amelia is on her 8th Chemotherapy treatment on Monday the 9th of September and only one more to go before an operation to remove the cancerous tumour behind her eye ..
But this is why and the reason we as #TeamAmelia are asking for help ... On Monday 2nd September we have been told Amelia❤ will now undergo radiotherapy when the chemo is done in a fortnight's time ... the radiotherapy Amelia
❤ has to receive is going to happen every single day for six weeks .. it's called direct proton therapy .. Its administered from a (Linac) (linear particle accelerator) .. due to the accutenes of my Angel's tumour and where it is positioned so close to the front lobe of her Brain in her eye socket it has to be this sort of treatment unfortunately
We can only trust the doctors nurses and surgeons ..... The Definitive Reason for this go fund me page is that .. Scotland and the oncology wards do not cater for this treatment .. I stay in Glasgow with my daughter and we have been told we will have to travel to Manchester / Germany / America for this treatment.... The NHS in the UK will pay for this this treatment..but our travel and stay and transport back and forth from wherever we have to go isn't ..... in the UK only Manchester has this machine and it serves the whole of the UK.. and a 6 week program isn't going to happen... maybe a week of daily treatment will happen but not to expect much more as it's in high demand .. so it'll be Germany or America and this is why #TeamAmelia is now trying to raise funds for my daughter to be able to get the treatment she deserves and needs to get her back to being the life and soul of any event and always always smiles ❤❤
