Story

This page has been set up to help raise funds to support Sophie on her journey to fight cancer, as well as providing extremely important funds for research into this rare form of the disease in children. The main charity we are raising money for is Alice's Arc Charity which is dedicated to funding research into finding a cure and less harsh treatments for Rhabdomyosarcoma.

Sophie has just turned 9 and was extremely excited about going back to school after COVID19 prevented her from seeing her friends for 6 months.

Sophie has been suffering from tummy pains in the past 6 months but Doctors kept thinking she had IBS or food intolerance. On Friday (4 September) things took a turn for the worse and thankfully my sister took her to A&E and this is where the journey begins.

We were informed Sophie had a lump that needed to be removed and the operation was arranged for Thursday (10th September). The operation took 7 hours and the consultant had the awful job of telling my sister that when he operated they found a very different tumour to what it looked like on the MRI. It wasn't stuck to the ovaries at all and they all remain in tact. What he did find was a tumour that had become stuck to parts of Sophie that couldn't be removed.

He did manage to remove 95% of it but the parts left he couldn't remove without doing long term damage. He explained that it now looked extremely likely this was a very rare soft tissue cancer. We needed to wait until the biopsy came back with confirmation and the grading etc to determine the treatment plan but this was going to be a tougher cancer to fight than the one he originally thought it would be.

Everyday feels like a lifetime at the moment and fear about what's to come. So Victoria, Leah, Chris and I have decided set up this fund for Sophie's journey so we can do our bit to help with any additional treatment, wigs, etc that Sophie needs and also to raise money for Alice's Arc Charity.

Sophie is a beautiful, strong, funny and brave girl and with us all behind her she's going to kick cancers butt!

Please consider donating anything you can to help support Sophie and the charity through this very tough time.

    Sophie starts her chemo today, she has to have the most aggressive chemo possible as it is an aggressive form of cancer. Then after all the chemo Sophie will be transferred to London to have radiotherapy as they are more tailored to it. Sophie has a long fight ahead, today is the start of that fight and we as a united Team Sophie will fight alongside her Stay strong Soph and kick cancer's butt! #TeamSophie

    We've got some preliminary results back and it looks like high grade minimum stage 3 possibly 4, undifferentiated sarcoma. It's an extremely rare cancer with no more than 3 children in the UK possibly getting it. It's so rare it doesn't have a name. It has spread throughout the pelvis. They can't give a survival rate as it's so rare but save to say the odds aren't in our favour. Sophie said did they have the results and was told it is definitely cancer. Sophie started crying and then she said at the end, "don't worry I'm OK. I love you".

    We are so sorry to hear about Sophie. We have learnt about her struggle with cancer through our granddaughter, Molly, who is doing a sponsored scoot to raise money to help Sophie.
