Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving Page

I will be Wing Walking this spring but to do this I need to lose 2 stone in weight. The weight is my biggest Challenge so your support ,love and donations will spur me on. Together we can help support a fabulous charity

Abbie's Army  was formed by the family of Abbie Mifsud. She was a brave little girl who on September 13th 2011, at only 6 years of age lost her fight with an inoperable and incurable (DIPG) brain tumour.

This is the MOST FATAL form of childhood brain cancer growing in the brainstem making surgery impossible. The only standard treatment is 6 weeks of palliative radiotherapy for symptom respite. The median survival time is just 8-12 months. Abbie passed away only 5months after her initial diagnosis.

ANY donation that could offer hope and the development of new treatments to these children, where currently there areNONE that are effective, is extremely worthwhile. To do this in Abbie's memory is an honour.
