Story

In September our wonderful friends were told their 4 year old daughter 'baby Katie' had a brain tumour. They operated to remove the tumour. Unfortunately only part of the tumour was safe to be remove due to it's location, leaving part of the tumour in baby Katie's brain.

On Monday 29th October the family received the diagnosis & their lives were changed forever. Baby Katie has Grade 4 Glioma, an aggressive form of brain cancer.

Baby Katie has started radiotherapy & low dose chemotherapy for 6 weeks before going onto high dose chemotherapy for a further 12 months.

Baby Katie has two siblings aged 6 & 8. Both mum and dad are not working to ensure they can spend as much time together as a family, support each other through this difficult time, juggle treatment and everyday life; whilst also trying to maintain as much normality as possible for all the children.

We wish we could take the pain away this family is experiencing and make Baby Katie better; but the hard truth is, we can't. But what we can do, is do everything we can to support our friends. With only a very low income coming into the household, Christmas around the corner and all the bills still needing to be paid; we would like to raise some money for them. We want to provide some financial relief to their already heart-breaking and stressful situation. If you can donate just a few pounds to help pay towards everyday living costs, help towards Christmas gifts, or put towards family days out, we would be eternally grateful. We want the family to have oportunities to still create some magical memories, during such a dark time and spend time concentrating on what's important, not on financial burdens.

This family would do everything to help the people they love and we just want to do the same for them.

Thank you for all your love, support and prayers.Team Baby Katie x

Ps. Katie is proudly named after her Auntie, 'Katie'. Therefore to avoid confusion, little Katie adopted the nickname 'Baby Katie'

    We have raised the target on the just giving page to £10,000 for the purpose of the page only; but please note ...we do not have a target of how much we want to raise. We just want to do as much as we can to help this family during this time. Treatment is scheduled for 12 months so the more we get the more we can help. Thank you to everyone again for the overwhelming generosity, love and support. Team Baby Katie 🦄
