Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.
Alexandra was diagnosed on the 14th of August 2013 with ewings Sarcoma cancer, on being diagnosed her parents were told that Alexandra had 3-6 months to live , Their world was rocked to the core and were all devastated,They had all decided from the early stages that they werent going to let the desease beat them and as a family they knew they were going to fight and fight hard.
Alexandra was to spend the next year getting 30 does of chemo , followed by high dose chemo & stem cell replacement & 30 doses of radiotherapy. During this time Alexandra was in intensive care & suffered from numerous infections , received many blood transfusions & platlette transfusions. In July 2014 we were told the great news that Alexandra was NED ( no evidence of disease)They were so happy at the news and had won the fight. Or so they thought.
Alexandra went back to school and life was moving on and they were planning life's future as a family. However on Jan/ Feb this year Alexandra had to go into hospital to get her gallbladder removed due to effects of her treatment, her parents got her through this and then were told by Alexandra that she had pains in her left elbow. They immediately contacted the doctor and went to see him , the pain was gone by then and caused a bit of confusion , they decided to wait and see if they pain would return, a few weeks later they decided to do a biopsy. On the 17th of March 2016 this year her parents received the heart wrenching news that Alexandras cancer was back.
On the 31st of March Alexandra started another cycle of chemotherapy, another 30 doses. To date Alexandra has had cancer in 11/12 parts of her body , the doctors are amazed by this and call her the beacon of the hospital
During this last 3 year their beautiful Alexandra has been the tower of strength, and inspiration to many. She has made so many friends and her Famous smile is loved by many.
We will be waiting on the next step of our journey, scans etc over the next few month
