Rhianna`s Lymphoma Fight

$5,075 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 59 people in 50 months
Rhianna is a beautiful 10 year old girl. Like most girls her age, Rhianna loves music, dancing, drama and Girl Guides.
In April this year, she couldn`t lift her arm up from a very painful lump in her arm pit. 3 courses of antibotics and a couple of stays in hospital, showed that the lumps were still there and more of them. Discovering them in her other armpit and groin area.
She had a biopsy done on the 12th of June and the results were given on the 18th of June.

Rhianna has been diagnosed with Anaplastic large cell lymphoma. The causes are unknown. It is not due to infection and cannot be passed on to others. This is why the antibotics didn`t work.

Anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL) is a rare type of non-Hodgkin lymphoma.

Please be aware Rhianna has a long road ahead. Currently she is having more CT scans, before surgery and then Chemo.

Rhianna does having a loving family, with 2 younger siblings and her mum is 26 weeks pregnant.
The shock of this news is just so overwhelming at this time. To comprehend all living costs.

I am hoping to set this page up to try and help her family with all the extra expenses of fuel, car parking, food ect.

Any money donated to this wonderful, strong - willed young girl would be greatly appreciated and will go a long way.

Thank you xx

Rhianna and her mother would love to Thank you all in person but it would be so hard as there has been so many beautiful souls giving.

Rhianna`s fight is continuous and this money all helps her medications, car parking and to help fill her fridge as she doesn`t like the hospital food.

and on her personal page on fb.

$200 has been spent on getting a wig to help with the thinning of her hair.
Rhianna had her first hair cut in 5 yrs yesterday. Not touching her hair for 5 years ( except for the smallest trims) growing it long, with her natural little wave through it. Too lose her hair was a very traumatic event in this little 10 years old life. Watching it fall to the ground off her cape, her mum and young Rhianna cried. Tears falling down, braving a smile for mums mobile photo - Rhianna is one strong girl

Cancer is a reminder that life is precious.
