Stacey entered our life on 23rd November 2005, we were very proud parents and our Son Jake who is football mad was so excited to have a little baby sister. We had a wonderful first 4 years as a family, with Stacey reaching all of her milestones and developing into a little girl, Stacey developed a love for all things pink and girly, and she loved Disney princess, her absolute favourite was Rapunzel.

When Stacey was 4 she began to feel unwell, she wasn’t herself and we knew that something wasn’t right, so we visited our GP. From there we went to our local hospital where tests revealed that Stacey had a mass in her tummy. The following day we were transferred to ST Georges Hospital where we waited for what felt like an eternity, with all kinds of awful possibilities running through our minds, however when a doctor approached us with a very serious look on his face we were not prepared for what we heard, our gorgeous vibrant little girl had Cancer, the worst kind of cancer she could have, Neuroblastoma, stage four, the final stage. We were devastated beyond belief, and our whole world fell apart.

The days and weeks that followed were a complete blur. Stacey began Chemotherapy immediately, and while we hoped for the best we prepared ourselves for the fact that we could lose our little girl at any moment. We began to research what Neuroblastoma actually meant, and we very quickly realised that although the treatment Stacey was undergoing was the best treatment available to us at the time, the reality of what may lie ahead was frightening. Neuroblastoma has around an 80% relapse rate and currently there is no relapse protocol in the UK.

We researched online and discovered the charity Families Against Neuroblastoma, and realised we needed to start fundraising for Stacey. FAN helps families like ours raise the huge sums needed, but rely heavily on the generosity and support of the general public, especially our local community. Sadly Neuroblastoma is a cruel disease and just as fundraising for the possibility of relapse began, that possibility became a reality, as just before Christmas we were given the devastating news that Stacey’s cancer had returned even more aggressively than before.

We are now desperately trying to raise £500,000 the huge sums needed to afford Stacey the option of further treatment abroad, we don’t have much time but with your help we can do it.

We hid our tears to give Stacey the best Christmas we possibly could, and watched her little face light up with all the magic that Christmas brings to a 7 year old. Please help us give Stacey the chance to see another Christmas.

Thank you

Warren and Samantha – Stacey’s Mummy and Daddy

Donating through Just Giving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with Just Giving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

A donation to a child's individual appeal will be held for the sole use of that child for treatment and access to that treatment. Should the child no longer need the money raised in their name, funds will either become available to other children within the charity, moved to our emergency fund, donated to Neuroblastoma research, donated to our general fund, or a combination of all four, as agreed with the family
