Story

WE ARE TEAM AWESOME!! In January 2016 at the age of 10 Maisie was diagnosed with a brain tumour known as a pilocytic astrocytoma. Bob’ as maisie named it, sadly lives in her brainstem. Maisie underwent a 7 hour operation in February 2016 to remove part of the tumour and whilst they were able to remove 80% unfortnately the surgery left her unable to walk, breathe, feed or do anything for herself and she has to have 24/7 care.. Maisie has continued to fight this every step of the way and as always, even during radiotherapy she has continued to smile. Recently she had to undergo 2 further operations following a diagnosis of hydrocephalus (fluid on the brain).. We have also discovered that ‘bob’ is actually still growing 🤬 so Maisie is now facing a lengthy course of chemotherapy. So our oroiinal plan for this year was to concentrate on some rehabilitation for her and that is still our plan. A big part of this rehab is Maisie’s Wheels for which we are trying to raise £26,000 to buy an all singing, all dancing wheelchair which will give Maisie and us as a family more freedom! The new chair will enable her to be positioned seated, laying downand and also stading up.. The cost of the chair is £26,000. In addition to this we are still looking at other physio for Maisie and yet again everything come with a hefty pricetag.

We were also hoping to get a place at a rehabilitation centre but this was declined so we now habe to look at doing something at home. Unfortunately, you only get so much theough the NHS, we will have to fund some of this ourselves, which again, because its medical, is not cheap.

There are several events taking place this year not just organosed by is but by some of out amazing friends and hopefully with your suppprt not only will we smash our target but Together, WE ARE TEAM AWESOME AND WILL BEAT THIS 💜💚

Any donations are gratefully received and all monies raised go to the Team Awesome Appeal !!

    We are very honoured that following the recent passing of our very dear friend Ian that his family, without our knowledge, requested that instead of flowers donations can be made towards Team Awesome and Maisie’s Wheels 💜💚 Ian was an amazing man who was taken from us way too soon following his battle with Sarcoma, a tissure destroying cancer. His support for us as a family was unbelievable even when fighting his own battle, a truly awesome man 💜💚
