Weʼre raising £50,000 to fund a private cancer treatment for my daughter Elsie who has recently been diagnosed with a brain tumour which cannot be removed.

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

Story

In October 2019 our lives were turned upside down when our beautiful 3 year old daughter was diagnosed with a cancerous brain tumour which due to its location cannot be removed.

Elsie was unwell for a few days with sickness and headaches which then led on to one of her eyes not responding, we knew something wasn’t right. Elsie had Hydrocephalus which is fluid build up on the brain which can be life threatening if untreated, luckily we had caught it in time. The tumour has been pushing on her ventricals which release the fluid. Thankfully after 2 operations the surgeons managed to relive the pressure by making a tiny hole in her brain.

We are exploring private treatments which the NHS cannot offer, we want the best treatment for our little girl. We have been told its inopperable due to its location as its right in the center of her brain, the Thalamus, also that chemo will only shrink it.

At the Harley Street Clinic, they are able to provide MRI-guided laser ablation using a Visualase™ system, which helps to treat tumours that were previously thought to be inoperable. A thin laser probe is inserted through a small hole into the brain. The tip of this probe emits laser energy to destroy the tumour while leaving surrounding healthy tissue undamaged unlike chemotherapy which also destroys healthy cells and brain tissue.

Any money not used for Elsies treatment or medical visits will be donated to the children‘s brain tumour charity, The little princess trust, John Radcliffe and Great Ormond Street Hospital.

    The plan is the longer we can hold of any treatment the better, these types of tumours can come back more aggressive and chemotherapy can sometimes not work over a long period of time. We have the option of laser but yet again the older Elsie is the better so we are at the moment in no rush to do this. We are very lucky we are in this situation and we have time as so many other children do not. This is why it’s so important to raise money for research before Elsie might need a new clinical trial, we hope it never gets to that..

    Today we got the news we was hoping for. Elsie’s tumour has not grown since her diagnoses back in October. Elsie’s tumour is inoperable and we are so lucky it’s not growing aggressively. We are now on something they call “watch and wait”, basically this means she is scanned every 3 months, as soon as they see any growth or her health starts to deteriorate then she will begin treatment which is 18 months of chemo......
