Weʼve raised £1,610 to Help Caitlin Daley's dream come true of going to Disneyworld Florida after a gruelling 2 years 10 weeks of treatments for Leukaemia
- Funded on Saturday, 18th August 2018
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Parents friends and coaches of Solway Sharks Junior Ice Hockey Club are trying to help Caitlin make one of her dreams come true by helping send her to Disneyworld Florida to meet the princesses. We are holding a sponsored waxing on 26th of May.
This is some of Caitlin's story in her mum Rachel's words.
Caitlin was diagnosed on the 22nd march 2016 she had just turned 5. Her treatment has been 2yrs 10weeks of chemotherapy and having multiple trips to theatre to receive Chemo into her spinal fluid. She has also had blood transfusion and platelet infusion as part of her treatment.
Through out it all she has used her sense of humour to help her through the darker days and there has been plenty of those! She is the bravest person we know and has strength we didn't know existed. She even shaved her own her off when it fell out, telling me to stop crying because I just look like everyone else on the ward and you don't cry for them. She worn her headscarves with pride and totally rocked the look. On the outside she showed everyone her strength and determination.
However emotionally she struggled more than we realised at times, she found going back to school difficult as at times she didn't look like her (hair loss, weight gain with steroids) and prolonged periods of time off she felt she had no friends. Her friends have been such an amazing support they are BFFs forever. Over the last few months Caitlin has really struggled with taking her chemotherapy at home and it's heartbreaking to hear her say she is tired of it and just wants it to stop but know if she does the cancer will win.
So that was enough for me to start planning her dream... Caitlin's dream...
We have made a dream board and she has cut lots of pictures out of what she wants to do and what she would like to treat William too. She is finally starting to see the light at end of tunnel and it motivating her to keep going as she has just had enough! Well we all have if I'm honest.
