Team Erin Cross

£160,541 of £140,000 goal

Raised by 8,508 people in 22 months
Erin was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia at the age of two in December 2012 after being unwell for many weeks. She had over two and a half years of treatment which finished in April of last year. During this time, aside from caring for their daughter, Erin's parents Sarah and Ant were active fundraisers for a fellow oncology childs appeal for treatment abroad and for Alder Hey Childrens Charity.

Everything was going well, Erin was a happy healthy girl and had started doing really well at school. She was having monthly check ups at Alder Hey but in March 2016 Sarah and Ant were given the devastating news that she had relapsed after 11 months off treatment.
Erin has endured two months of gruelling chemotherapy and needs a life saving bone marrow transplant. Unfortunately tests have revealed that Erin isn't in remission, which she would need to be in order to have her life saving transplant. There's a strong chance that Erin will need  Car T Cell therapy to prepare her for a bone marrow transplant,  but there's no guarantee that she will receive this treatment in the UK.  Only one child per month nationally is treated with Car T Cell therapy, so Erin's family feel that funds now need to be raised so Erin has the chance of receiving this therapy abroad.

Erin was rushed to Alder Hey last night with a temperature.
Thankfully she seems a bit brighter this morning but she will probably be in hospital for at least two days on IV antibiotics. She is also having a blood transfusion because her HB is very low.
Thank you everyone for all your continued support and kindness.

Ant, Erin and I can not thank you enough for the phenomenal response to our plea for funds to save our Daughter Erin.
Having reached our initial target of 100K and being in a position to actually submit a request for treatment, we are now in a position to update you on our campaign.
Alder Hey have been in talks with centres in America to gain a better understanding of costs.
At the moment, we are advised that we need to raise approximately 140k in total which would cover any additional medical care needed by Erin whilst she is in America. The long haul travel can make Erin poorly. Indeed when she went to Disney with Make a Wish, she took ill on the flight, needed emergency medical assistance and was rushed to hospital.
Erin needs frequent scans, blood and platelet transfusions and we also have to consider tax costs on top of this already huge outgoing.
So, for these reasons, we have been advised by the consultants from both the US and Alder Hey to increase Erin’s fund to 140K in total. We appreciate your generosity to date and would hope that you continue to support Erin on the last stretch of this campaign to get the life-saving treatment she so desperately needs. Any funds raised that are surplus to Erin's needs will be donated to Alder Hey, funding Leukaemia research. Thank you.

Ant, Sarah and Erin x

We are truly astounded by everyone's generosity!! Can't believe that we have raised £33,692 in one day, it's unbelievable!!

We WILL get Erin on that plane and she WILL recieve her life saving Car T Cell therapy, all thanks to each and everyone of you.

Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts, we are nearly half way to achieving our target!!

Love Sarah, Ant & Erin Cross

Thank you everyone for all your fantastic donations so far.
Originally this account was set up to help us with the expenses of living in hospital for months and months. However we are now in the position where we need to start raising funds for possible lifesaving treatment abroad for Erin. Anything that anyone can do to help us with this huge task would be greatly appreciated.

Hey guys, just wanted to say that you will make this figure and Erin will recover. It's not false hope or a belief in the devine - just an absolute confidence in the British public to do what's right and what's good to raise the money you need. Erin's story is inspirational but it is your unending love and commitment for your daughter which is just as heart warming. I work in Communications so if there is ANYTHING you need from me please do not feel afraid to ask or embarrassed to ask.

Please let's not stop at £100K. That amount will get Erin her treatment but the family also need flights, accommodation and general daily living costs for when they are there, as well as any other medical expenses that may be acquired along the way. Nobody deserves it more than them. Come on Erin! xxxxx

Erin, you dont realise yet and when you grow up being told how brave you were and how inspiring you are, you wont believe it, because for you, this is a way of life and you are used to nothing else. One day you will realise this enormous strength that you have and how resiliant you are to situations you face, because of this journey you have been through. I myself had ALL at the age of 4, and now at 20 I still think about all those in Alder Hey who helped me have as normal childhood as possible and gave me my strong willed, independant personality. Everything happens for a reason and this is a life experience to enable you to be stronger, braver and more determined than you have ever been before. I'm rooting for you Erin, best of luck to you and your family as you go through this hurdle of life. XX

Fantastic news about the amount raised so far, but that's still only Step 1 I think? If I've read the information correctly, Erin will ultimately need a bone marrow transplant, is that correct? If it is, then please let me know and I'll share the various donation sites on my FaceBook page (unfortunately I'm too old to donate apparently).
