Story

Daisy is our cheeky little 3 year old daughter soon to be turning 4!
She had a persistant cough that was diagnosed by our GP as being a lower chest infection; after being given Penicillin she still had it, so after another 3 trips back to the GP they diagnosed Asthma and prescribed an inhaler for her but once again this didn't work.
One weekend back in November 2016 she was very lethargic and boiling hot so I took her to A&E to been seen and she just was not her usual self, after listening to her chest with a stethoscope doctors were concerned that air was not coming out of one lung, after having an x ray they could see that Daisy has a collapsed lung and a tumour squashing her airways, after more tests, biopsies and scans we were told that Daisy has T -cell Lymphoblastic Lymphoma a type of Cancer.
Since this diagnosis our worlds have fallen apart.
We are living away from home as she is in hospital receiving Chemotherapy and steroids as well as other drugs. we also have a 5 year old and an 8 week old baby and are unable work as one of us always has to stay by her side day and night. Bills and rent still need to be paid and our car is off of the road as the engine has seized. Everything seems a little too much for us at the moment and we are giving our all to make sure that Daisy gets better and beats this disease. Daisy should be living like any other child of her age but instead is in bed and very wobbly on her feet, feeling unwell and tired, this is a huge contrast from the child that she once was; she loved being outdoors on her bike or playing with her sisters but now has lost all interest. Our worlds have fallen apart and we really could do with a little help to ease some of the burdens of life right now.
Our ultimate aim is to get Daisy better, help her through the 2.5 year treatment plan and get back that infectious smile she has.
Please help if you can, like every parent does; we want the best for her and her sisters xxx

     It's been an incredible 110 days since someone mentioned to me to open a just giving page! It was really strange opening a fundraising page, mixed emotions but cannot believe how much generosity is out there. We set a target of 50k to cover roughly 2 years of me not working and also help with the added expenses of looking after a poorly girl. We have had donations from companies and events running to raise money and we have now reached around 40k. Please share for the final 10 days xxx
