Raised by 2,251 people in 23 months

16277384_1480151052.694_funddescription.***22nd of December Update ***
We have just had a devastating quote from Seattle... the price of the treatment has tripled since September when Katie's friend received similar life saving treatment. This is because they have improved the treatment to reduce side effects by 50%, which is positive medically, however it has made our fund raising challenge greater. Please keep sharing and supporting, you have helped raise over £78k in only 4 weeks so we keep fighting and will do this for Katie! ***

Katie Wright, the kindest funniest most beautiful girl you will ever meet, suffering from the ugliest disease known to man, for the SECOND time!

Katie has leukaemia initally diagnosed in 2013, after nearly 3 years of treatment endless operations and procedure she finally finished treatment 7 months ago. We had a huge end of treatment party to celebrate the end of the worse part of our lives. All Katie's friends and family had the best night of their lives, the pain suffering was finally over and we had our Katie alive!

Batman loving,  pink wearing,  true modern day girl, with four brothers who know their place! She's adored by everyone, so gentle and caring. If your seen at a party with your hands free, she will bring over a cake, to ensure your looked after! A true heart of gold. 

Yesterday we got the devastating news it was back, after we fought so hard, after we thought it was all over! It was back!

Unfortunately relapse is not as easy to battle as initial diagnosis and we have been informed that the best chance of having our beautiful angel survive, is to have immunotherapy  treatment in Seattle, but only one child per month in the UK are accepted for the life saving treatment just 5% of all children's relapses, due to the cost.

We have been informed we need to gather funds incase we are not the "lucky ones" chosen for this treatment to save our girl.

I can not believe Katie's life comes down to money! Is this for real? But here we are.

Please help save Katie's life! Donate anything you can, all funds will go to help another child with cancer if Katie gets chosen.

Hi Katie supporters...the circumstances we are now facing with Katie are.... ❤️⭐️ we know how very confusing this journey can be, especially when it is so unpredictable and changeable! ❤️⭐️ The great news is that Katie is in remission! Almost miraculous news given the prognosis we were given at Christmas and of course this should be celebrated! ❤️⭐️ BUT we have been told by consultants that we should continue to fundraise for Katie in the event that an alternative treatment may need to be accessed with some urgency should the current plan be unsuccessful, there is one main reason they are suggesting this. Katie is not on a relapse plan but an initial diagnosis plan- this is not typical for a child in Katie's circumstances This is because the last time Katie was treated she was unable to cope with even this- the lowest intensity chemotherapy plan- she recieved only 25% of the treatment she was expected to on maintainance simply because of the way she reacted to the medication we are hoping and praying that she is able to stick to the plan and receive the full protocol this time but we have no guarantees with this, her body chemistry is so sensitive to medications and already on day one her body is reacting to medication she has received the circumstances are that unusual around Katie's treatment plan that consultants are taking her case to a national meeting for guidance, knowledge and support- it is in essence a trial the news that she is in remission is amazing and what it has done is given us extra time and reduced the urgency that was around at Christmas time we will be hoping and praying with all our hearts that Katie is able to adhere to the plan and we are able to cure her without the need for alternative treatments but being so early in the treatment plan we need to be mindful whilst optimistic that this is just a plan and that at any point in the near future it may change and the urgency will then return so please, continue to support us and stay with us on this journey we still have a great distance to travel safely ❤️⭐️
BIG LOVE ❤️BIG Thanks

Hi guys, just wanted to write to everyone who has donated / given up time / spread Katie's story. You have all been an immeasurable help to our family and to Katie's chances of reaching Seattle. Despite the blow Katie was dealt a few days ago, we are sure that the kindness you have all shown since finding out about her relapsing is still going to ensure she gets the immunotherapy she needs, so thanks again and keep sharing and raising awareness. We will never be able to forget what you have all done for Katie and our family. Shaun x

Gena Wright - I highly recommend the hospital Ann mentioned, Nationwide Children's Hospital in Columbus, OHIO. My daughter, Miriam, has Trisomy 21 (Down Syndrome) and we live in Columbus. They are one of the top 5 hospitals in the Nation! They saved my baby's life when she was just 5 months old, they performed Open Heart Surgery and now she is 19 months and doing fantastic!! All my love to your family, I hope Miss Katie pulls through with flying colors!!! ♥
