Weʼre raising £1,000 to Help celebrate Aprils 5 YEARS CANCER FREE milestone in February 2017 beating her 30% chance of survival and 90% relapse chance
- Didcot, United Kingdom
- Children and youth
- Time left
- 9 days to go
Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.
April was 7 weeks old when she was diagnosed with Infant Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, she was given a 3/10 survival chance.
After seeing 3 different GPs we were unsatisfied with their uncertainty of Aprils symptoms, the last GP we saw told us to come back in 2 weeks and she would check her again but something told me to go to A & E later that evening, early next morning our world was turned upside down and April was admitted as an inpatient and started treatment straight away, we were told if we waited 2 weeks she would have died!
After months of chemotherapy followed by a bone marrow transplant and a 10 day stay in intensive care on life support after contracting an Ecoli infection April was finally allowed home 4 months after her transplant and 11 months after her first being diagnosed.
We were told she had a 90% chance the cancer could return but as more time passed the chance would decrease and when she reached 5 years the chance of the blood cancer returning was 10% or less, so we have decided to celebrate her 5 year milestone with a suprise gift of being a princess for the day.
April didn't have the chance to have a 'normal' first year of life and is often left behind because she is a great deal smaller than other children her age due to her life saving treatment.
All donations will be greatly appreciated and any extra money raised will go to charities that helped us through the most difficult time of our lives: CLIC Sargent, Family fund, Ronald McDonald house.
Thank you. ❤

No words can describe the feeling of being told your child has cancer! Everything around you just stops, you wish you could take it away and fight for them, but you can't, you feel hopeless. April has smiled throughout her treatment and has so far beat the odds. My miracle girl!
