Weʼre raising £10,000 to help fund pioneering treatment on a tumour on Brooke’s brain stem.We are hosting a charity football match with Bellway Homes at AFC Totton.
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.
Brooke is the happy, beautiful, talented daughter of Lisa and Dan and older sister to Amelia.
Loved by her friends and all who know her, Brooke has a beautiful soul, always caring for others around her yet full of feist and carries a true sense of what is right and wrong. She loves to perform and has had many a solo in school productions and has blessed the stage with an enormous presence despite her half pint size at drama performances!
In April 2019, the Hedge End family received the devastating news that Brooke has a rare, inoperable tumour on her brain stem. Brooke has been receiving care at Southampton General Hospital and has completed a 6 week intensive course of treatment to shrink the tumour at University College London Hospital, in the hope that this will alleviate some of the symptoms that she has developed.
The care that they have received so far has been invaluable, however, the family must now pursue private, possibly overseas treatment in order to gain access to options not covered on the NHS.
As you can only imagine, the family are desperate to fund this treatment. They need to see their daughter continue to live her life as any child should.
The money will be used to fund the treatment, assist the family with living costs (Dan and Lisa are self-employed) and ultimately by participating in this treatment route, Brooke will actually be contributing to the fight to beat this for not only herself, but for other children in the future too.
The Leavey’s have a wonderful support network and as a community we are positive that we can all dig deep and play a vital part in the fundraising required, but we also need your help too.
Brooke has been absolutely awe inspiring throughout her treatment. Without complaining she has endured blinding headaches, sickness, a facial palsy, swollen eye, nasty steroid side effects, and many motor skill problems. Despite all this, every single day Brooke turned up to radiation with a ‘let’s do this’ attitude. She has given this beast the name of Naughty Nibbler and is determined to see the back of him, no matter what it takes.
Please help us in helping the family have access to every single possible treatment route available to give Brooke the life she so desperately deserves.
We at Vision Access are all family men and we want to help in anyway we can, Brooke fights every day to beat this so please join us in helping Brooke to continue her fight.
Thank you for taking the time to read this and any help you can give will mean the world.
