My Beautiful Brave 16 year old Daughter Izzy has been diagnosed with an inoperable diffused midline gial brain tumour. She’s has endured countless scans, biopsy’s and even a permanent brain shunt being implanted in the last two months and She has undergone radiotherapy at velindre cancer centre daily in the hopes that we can shrink this nasty little aggressive  alien in her head for as long possible. 
She has amazed us all with ability to take her diagnosis in her stride, to continue to try attend 6th form and her drama classes and even got the energy to perform in her panto at Christmas plus at her majesty’s theatre London with her drama group in march. 
You have all helped us do so much the last few months and make wonderful memories and put such a smile on her face I can’t thank any of you enough for the compassion and love you have shown my girl
She has a bucket list of things she would like to be able to do. Including seeing Killer Whales in the wild and the northern lights. 

We want to make Izzy have as many memories and experiences possible right now. After everything that she has been through and what time will bring I can’t do a lot else but be there to support her and make every single moment and memory count. 
Things are changing for Izzy and her mobility is becoming an issue so we know that we have to do as much as we can now. 
Right now we are back in hospital and she will be starting more radiotherapy on Wednesday as the tumour has re grown and is blocking part of her shunt which has caused inflammation and lots of problems for her.
Weve already achieved time in California with our family there, meeting Lin Manuel Miranda her idol and lots of theatre trips. 
Yes im desperately trying to make as many special memories as we can. 
Please keep sharing and spreading her story this is a horrible terrible disease with such an horrendous outcome and no cure just time
If you can help in anyway at all please please share this post or message or contact me. 
We are still fundraising to try and make sure izzy can achieve her dreams if you would like to donate or organise a fundraising event please please please get in touch time is not on our side
I will be sharing this on Facebook and instagram and twitter and trying to spread the word. 
My girl deserves the world if I could I would give it too her and do anything to take this away. 
In the meantime we stay strong and positive and making sure she knows how much she is loved ❤️

So for the last 6 weeks we’ve been in hospital and between two hospitals. The lovely emerald ward in the royal Gwent and now we are at the wonderful Teenage Cancer Trust Unit in Cardiff.
Next Monday will be her last radiotherapy session and then we are going to Ty-Hafan hospice for 2 weeks in the hope that we can eventually get home where we want to be.
Ty-hafan is a wonderful place in gorgeous grounds next to the sea.
We are hoping they will be able to assist in identifying what Izzys needs will be when we get home.
We can’t thank everyone enough for the love and support they have shown us over this stressful time an along this journey.
Positivity has been the word I’ve tried to get izzy to use along this road and to own the Cancer not let it own you. I’m so amazingly proud of my strong beautiful girl and how much she is loved by everyone just proves to me how special she truly is. Her and her brother are my world I’ve been so very lucky to be blessed with two amazing children who I will fight for with every thing I have to give her be him everything they deserve.
