In early August of this year our little girl was diagnosed with stage 4 Neuroblastoma. Our world came crashing down around us and our lives will now never ever be the same again. We have dusted ourselves down, rolled up our selves and we're going to help our little princess fight this horrible disease.
Merryn is like most other 4 year old girls. She plays with her dolls, loves the colour pink and always seems to be creating - painting, drawing or making stuff. She loves school and learning.
But unlike most other 4 year olds, Merryn can't always go to school. She will miss days due to hospital visits for treatment or if she gets if her blood counts are too low.
Merryn is treatment will take 18 months, where we hope at the end of it we'll get our little girl back. But it'll not end there...the high possibility of relapse will haunt us, so in an attempt to attack this on the front foot we are fundraising to pursue other treatment, so we never have to go through this living nightmare that we find oursleves in.
