Story

Mercy’s Story

We are looking to raise £150,000 to fund clinical trials abroad,finance care/ equipment and to give an extremely brave 5 year old girl who is fighting an aggressive DIPG paediatric brain tumour, which presently has no cure, the best life possible with her parents.


Mercy Cuthbertson is an adorable, loving and highly sociable little girl from North Tyneside who started experiencing issues with her balance and vision.
Following these symptoms developing, MRI Scans and medical investigations were conducted and she was diagnosed with a DIPG which is an aggresive brain tumour.


This is a devastating paediatric disease with a universally bleak prognosis and for which there is currently no cure and extremely limited treatment options on the NHS.

In these heartbreaking circumstances we are all rallying around and supporting Mercy to ensure she has access to the leading medical treatments in the UK and abroad, with the overall aim of giving her the best possible chance of fighting this horrific disease.
Since diagnosis we have been grateful for every single day, Mercy has had 3 x brain surgery operations, 28 radiotherapy sessions, intense physio and numerous hospital admissions and has never complained once.


The donations generated from this fundraising will go towards financing vital life prolonging medications, clinical trials abroad, equipment, specialised care and give Mercy the best life possible, spending precious time with her parents who are off work caring for her 24/7.

Please support Mercy and her family at this horrendous time and help give her the best possible fighting chance against what is simply every parent's worst nightmare.

    There has been a lot going on since the last update, and the amount of money raised so far it absolutely incredible. Mercy hasn't complained once about her treatment and continues to have better mobility, she also made it out the house to feed the ducks. Last week Mercy went to the RVI for MRI scans and tests and hopefully we can update further re treatment soon. Thanks again to everyone who has donated, the support has been amazing xx #Mercysmightyfight
