                                     Helping Myla Mae Carte and family


Myla Mae Carte before she got ill was a typical 5 year old girl, bouncing with energy and fighting with her siblings.

Two years ago Myla was in pain, numerous trips to A&E and to their local Dr surgery came back continuously with diagnosis of either a virus or water infection each time.

This year her parents demanded that their daughter had a scan to establish if there was something more underlying.

This is when the parent’s nightmare began. Myla was diagnosed with Wilms tumour. Initially the tumour started in Myla’s kidney, however it has spread further spreading to her lymph glands, lungs and pelvis. The tumour is now at stage 4.

Myla is unable to keep food down and is having to be fed through a feeding tube.

At the moment Myla is undergoing chemotherapy and has had her 2nd session, her 3rd one being on Wednesday 4th July 2018. Today Tuesday 3rd July Myla’s hair has begun to fall out, to a little girl this is heart-breaking especially when they have lovely long brown hair.

The family face a tough few months ahead with an operation on 2nd August 2018 to remove the tumour from her Kidney, ovaries and also pelvis if possible and then 6 months of chemotherapy and then radiotherapy.  

In order for something for the family to look forward to this page has been set up. The monies raised will go towards a much needed family holiday travelling around Europe and attending Theme parks. We are wanting to raise as much money as possible for this to be achieved. Each donation will be greatly appreciated. Please feel free to fundraise and donate to help this be achieved.

Regular updates on Myla’s health will be put on this page to help ease the pressure off the parents.

Parents permission  received for this page to be set up on their behalf.

Unfortunately Myla has been really poorly the last 2 weeks so her operation has been put back a week for her to recover before having it but the good news is her Mri results are in and the big tumor has shrunk the tumor in her pelvis looks to have gone and she only has a few metastasis left in her lungs and stomach.
