    Sophie And ALL

    My eldest daughter was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL) six and a half months ago. She is eight years old. She hasn't even made a mark on earth, only in my heart, but she is bearing the weight of cancer on her shoulders. The thing with cancer....it is a...

    Treasure The Good Days

    We are still stuck in a rut. My little one, ALL and it's not responding to treatment. Still looking at curative options, but each day reduces our hope. Treasure the good days. The days they are strong enough to talk and smile and cry. We don't have those days anymore. So we are...

    I Lost My 12 Year Old Daughter To Cancer

    On 09/27/07 I got the most devastating news a parent could get. "Your child has a mass in her brain-stem, and there is NOTHING we can do" The exact term is Diffused Intrinsic Pontine Glioma or DIPG. She was 11 at the time. In today's world of science, I didn't understand why...

    Back In Hospital...

    Waiting for your child. Watching them sleep, with your book in one hand, and chocolate or junk in the other. They are sleeping in the daytime, in the sunshine, and you wish they could be playing outside in the summer heat. That's what I'm doing, and messing on EP because I have...

    We Are Survivors!

    So. Sunday 14th July. Nearly a month since we were told the leukaemia has stopped responding. We are on the transplant list (bone marrow). I can't donate, sadly. We are waiting. We are surviving. So far.

    I lost my dad, but had I only known... every one of you should know of the Gerson therapy. Your doctors will never tell you about it, they are instructed not to believe.

    Good News!

    Iron deposits were lower than we expected. Ultrasound of liver was okay. Sophie came out of hospital today- and the wheelchair is perfect for her. Was a worrying moment when it was thought that her Hickman line might have broken. Was terrifying- yes, she's still on chemo, even if...

    Not Exactly :(

    We are waiting for the biopsy to come back for my 3yo, we know there's a tumour, obviously, but we don't know if it's malign. We are waiting for our world to end. It shouldn't be like this.
