Our beautiful 14 year old daughter Grace, or Amazing Grace as she is more appropriately known, was diagnosed with a rare form of brain tumour in July 2018. Since her diagnosis, Grace has undergone two gruelling years of treatment and chemotherapy.
However, time is running out. Grace’s cancer is inoperable and her oncologist has said she needs specialist drugs. We are waiting to see if the NHS will supply them but Grace needs this treatment now.
We really need your help.
When Grace was first diagnosed with cancer, she said she wanted to show people not be scared of cancer, but to fight it and lead a normal life. During her treatment, Grace continues to inspire countless others with her determination, optimism and cheerfulness. From throwing herself into judo, attending air cadets and dance classes, learning to sail and to ride a horse and donating her hair to other cancer patients; despite her illness, our amazing Grace never gives up. She has also won a number of awards for her bravery.
Please help us raise £36,000 so we can get Grace treated now with Everolimus, a targeted drug which gives her the best chance to fight her cancer and live a normal life. If Everolimus is not successful a further £55,000 will be required for Dendrick Cell Vaccination.
If we are lucky enough to raise more money than we need to fund the Everolimus drug and any other medications and therapies that Grace may benefit from, all surplus funds will support the Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust as they have given Grace great joy.
Please donate anything that you can spare using the donate button.
Grace is a pupil at St Joan of Arc School in Rickmansworth.
We thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
