    Story

    My close friend Evie was diagnosed with a brain tumour in 2016, and has recieved multiple rounds of chemo and radiotherapy since then. After relapsing a few months ago, her current situation means the growth and spreading of her cancer has been suppressed rather than cured, leaving her in a ‘wait and see’ situation in terms of what happens next. With no current offer of further treatment, Evie is now looking into an innovative type of treatment currently being offered in Germany. Whilst treatments such as chemotherapy offered on the NHS destroy both the cancerous and normal cells of the body- often resulting in grueling side effects and further health complications- immunotherapy instead focuses on building up the immune system in order to help it fight the cancer. This means there is less chance of damaging side effects and a greater chance of eliminating the cancerous cells of the body. Contact with specialists in this area have proved positive, with a great deal of interest being shown in Evie and the potential for this new treatment to perhaps be beneficial in her case.

    In order to recieve this treatment, Evie’s close friends and family are hoping to raise £50,000 to fund the costs of this process. Evie is one of my best friends and my constant source of inspiration. Having seen her go through this challenging time in her life has been heartbreaking, however I’ve also seen her grow into an amazingly spirited, incredibly brave person who has faced every setback of these past two and a half years with an indescribable amount of courage. If anyone is able to donate to this cause it would be so hugely appreciated by both Evie and those close to her. The money raised will be pooled together with another fund trying to raise money for the same cause. The love and awe I have for one of my best friends is beyond words and it would mean the world if you could donate to this cause in order to potentially change this beautiful and brave girl’s life.
