Freya is a 5 year old little girl whos world has been turned upside down by the life changing diagnosis of DIPG (difuse intrinsic pontine glioma), an agressive inoprable brain tumor. Freya is a bubbly, vibrant little girl who is full of life, only starting school in september.
Her big brother Ethan is 7 years old, an avid football fan who loves the toon.
Her mummy Vicky is a peadiatric intensive care nurse who has devoted her career to caring for sick children for 9 years.
Both Mum and Dad are devastated by this diagnosis and want to give Freya all the things a little girl should have in life.
Their world also has been turned upside down by the diagnosis, both having to take sick leave work to care for Freya and Ethan.
It all started with nurmerous trips to the doctors and being told that Freya was suffering from abdominal migranes and behavioural changes due to her age.
Vicky's mothers instinct kicked in and not convinced by the diagnosis a Sunday trip to A&E at the RVI in Newcastle gave them the devastating news they never thought they would recieve.
DIPG has a 0% survival rate, only 10% of children survive 2 years following thier diagnosis and less than 1% survive for 5 years, the average survival is 9 months from diagnosis.
As a teacher of children of a similar age to Freya, I can't imagine the devestation felt by the Amis family. Mark used to be a manager of a store I worked in years ago, and it's true that you believe things like this never happen to somebody you know. I really want to try and make some money for this family so this little girl can have some lovely treats and make some happy memories. As well as making a donation, I am completing a dry November (no alcohol for a month) in an effort to raise some funds for this special little girl. Please give anything you can, even the smallest amount could make the biggest difference.
Thanks so much for taking the time to read this and please share the hell out of this!
