raised of £8,000 target by 23 supporters

    Weʼve raised £555 to Help fund the family getting to America for Emma to treatment. This is continuing from the previous crowd funding page.

    Funded on Wednesday, 8th March 2017

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    Thank you for taking the time to read my just giving page. My name is Sonja I live with my partner Stephen and children Ewan 6 and Emma 1.
    In November 2016 our world was turned upside down when Emma was diagnosed with an Atypical Teratoid Rhabdoid Tumour which effects the brain.
    Emma has had an operation to remove her tumour which was successful and is currently undergoing chemotherapy. She will require radiotherapy which the hospital has advised the best type of treatment for Emma would be Proton Radiotherapy which is only available overseas, in Emma's case this would be in America. She requires this asap. The proton treatment they believe is the best course for Emma due to her age and to give her the best chance of having less long term effects and for her development.
    The application is being processed at present and we are awaiting approval for this and have been advised to have funds in place as we will only be given short notice to leave.
    We would have to spend a few months in the states which will be very costly for us as a family. Emma's big brother Ewan loves his sister very much. He would like to be able to go to America with us too and be with his family. This is something we would have to fund ourselves.
    The financial burden is an added stress that diverts our focus from our little girl. We love both our children very much and understandably want to be together as a family, helping and supporting one and other.
    This where we need YOUR help! This is why we have set up this page. This is a chance for your chance to help us go to America together as a family so that Emma can receive the best treatment and to help cover all expenses while we are over there, with no added worry or stress.
    Any donations, big or small would be greatly appreciated and will all go towards our little star!
    We appreciate all the help and support we have been given and from the bottom of our hearts we genuinely thank each and everyone of you.
    Thanks so much
    Sonja & Stephen
