Rachael is my smart, bubbly, beautiful,brave and kind 12 year old niece who has recently been diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer which doctors failed to spot on two occasions. Her parents and family recieved this devistating news on the 8th of August and life changed dramtically. Unfortunatley after further tests it was clear the cancer was well established in her groin and it had spread to both lungs, making her chances of survival drop to 25%. She has now started treatment and is astounding everyone around her with her bravery and courage. The reality of cancer really hit home once Rachael began to loose her hair. Did this stop her? Oh no this amazing, brave 12 year old decided to fight back and shaved her head, determined not to let Cancer rule her life. Even though the treatment is aggressive and gruelling, she remains in high spirits and rarely lets it get her down. After further test it became clear that Rachael could no longer put any weight onto her leg, as there was a real risk of the bone shattering due to it being so weak. This is where her parents knew that dramatic life changes would have to be made. They live in a 3 story town house with Rachaels bedroom on the top floor (which they only redecorated for her last christmas).They are now having to convert their ground floor Garage into a bedroom and wash room. To ensure Rachael doesn't have to struggle and can maintain as much dignity and independance as possible. In addition this hard working family have had to cancel a holiday they had been saving for, for 2 years. Rachael has two younger brothers and as you must appreciate this is hard for them too. Time away from their parents, their sister and having to make sacrifcies that are sometimes unavoidable. This is all very costly and people are trying to raise money to help them (including a bike ride) covert the garage and create it into a retreat for her that is easily accessable. It will also treat the family once they are ready to much needed quality time. I think it is clear that children with Cancer have a fight on their hands and are so brave, just like superheros!.So myself and the staff at my place of work in Hull are going to be doing a walk across the humber bridge and back, the second longest suspension bridge in Europe. This will be done with some of our children and we will all be dressed as superheros. This will take place on 18th October 2014 and we hope to raise some more much needed money to help a family and a child fighting the biggest battle of their lives. Any donation is welcome and will help make life a little easier.
