In October 2012 Emilie at the age of 7, was diagnosed with a highly malinant brain tumour - Medulloblastoma . Since then she's had a really rubbish time of it. Having surgery to remove the tumour, she was left with Posterior Fossa Syndrome. This left her paraylused down her left side, not being able to walk, talk, eat, drink or use the toilet herself, we are told these symptoms will get better as time goes on but Emilie will always be weak on her left hand side. This is due to damage in the serabelum after removing the tumour from her brain stem. She then had 30 doses of radiotherapy to her brain alongside chemotherapy every 3 weeks for a total of 48 weeks due to finish Dec 2013. My poor little Emilie has been in & out in & out of hospital, with terrible infections in between having chemo, leaving her completley wiped out. She has a feeding tube( gastarostomy) which she relys on as a sorce of nutrition as she has not eaten a meal since starting chemotherapy. Emilie has suffered awfully with sickness, leaving her unable to even stand, so now relys on her 'pink' wheelchair as support. She has missed nearly two years of school through being in hospital. She's missed her friends & just normal daily activities & growing up like kids her age. Emilie has been through so much already. As her parents we want to take her to the moon & back as she deserves that & more. She's never once moaned throughout this dreadful time & has ALWAYS had a smile on her beautiful face. As a treat for Em, when she's finished her treatment & has had all her tubes removed she will be able to do one thing she loved more than anything & that was to 'swim'! So when she's up to it we would like to take her to a place she has wanted to go for a long time..... A real holiday of a lifetime , and this would be to go to 'Disneylsnd'. So we are here to try & help raise a little money for Em & for anything large she needs to help & make life easier for her. To help us get this ball rolling & give Emilie one hell of a treat at the end of this horrible journey. We as Emilie's parents would like to make people aware of childhood cancer..... Always stick with your instinct & DO NOT ignore. Cancer is ruthless & we as millions of others want to fight this disease. Many thank you 's to you all to even take the time to read our posts.
