A dear childhood friend and his family recently lost their cherished little girl, Lizzy Bremer lost her life on July 5th, 2 days after her 2nd birthday to Neuroblastoma, the wretched cancer she had fought for 6 months.
Lizzy had an incredibly rare strain of a very rare and aggressive childhood cancer. She was diagnosed with stage 4 high risk Neuroblastoma in January. This affects around 25% of the 60 children a year who get this disease. She was, staggeringly, 1 of only 15 children in the UK being treated at this level. Sadly, current treatments can be ineffective if a child's tumours have an amplification of the MYC-N gene. This is what caused Lizzy's cancer to take over her body and run out of control.
At the moment there are many efforts being made in clinical studies to find treatments to control this gene, none yet successful.
Funds are desperately needed to progress research to the point where other little angels, like my friends baby, don't have to suffer and die at the hands of what is otherwise a rampant disease.
