Holly is our beautiful daughter.
She was born with a condition called Congenital Melanocytic Naevus Syndrome which is characterized by the presence of 'moles/birthmarks'. Because of this condition, Holly was a high risk of developing melanoma and this is what happened.
It is such a rare and aggressive melanoma that there is currently no effective treatment and, sadly, our baby girl gained her angel wings on Friday 21st February 2014, leaving us completely devastated. She was just 2 years old.
Caring Matters Now have supported our family through this tough time and we think it should be recognised.
They work tirelessly to support those affected by CMN, raise awareness and raise funds for the vital research currently underway at Great Ormond Street Children's Hospital.
On Holly's passing, CMN shared her loss through their facebook page and generated so much love and messages reaching 15,000 people from all over the world. Holly has had a massive impact on the lives of many and it is our aim that she will continue to do so.
Please support Holly and CMN by making a donation. Your support is so much appreciated.
We have to find a cure.
Donna, Jon & Callum
Holly's parents and big brother
