    We were like any normal family, me, my husband, Grace 9, Olivia 5 and Murphy the dog.Our life revolved around school runs, the girls activities, family time and work . Our elder daughter Grace had had a lump in her cheek which we thought was an abscess. On December 9th 2015, our lives changed forever. After extensive medical tests we were told that she had a rare form of cancer. It is a Embryonal Rhabdomyosarcoma. Her treatment cycle is nine rounds of chemotherapy, then surgery and then Radiotherapy. At this stage we are six rounds in and waiting for her operation, which is very invasive and extensive. When she has recovered she will have one more round of chemotherapy here and then we go to Oklahoma for Proton therapy. We will be there for nine weeks.
    We are raising money for this trip. We need to pay for the air fare for our youngest daughter and for money to assist us why we are there. We want to make this trip to be more than just about the Proton treatment.
    It looks like I will have to have unpaid leave from work for this time and we need to pay all of our bills here.
    We are very grateful for any donations that we receive. We are overwhelmed by people's kindness and love. We thank everyone from the bottom of our hearts. Xx
