One of Stories How we hellped
REBECCA was only 3 years old when doctor found a cancerous tumour in her stomach! It was diagnosed as neuroblastoma-a particularity aggressive form of cancer.
She endured years of hospital admissions; surgery; chemotherapy, radiotherapy and pain. She even had to have a stem cell transplant. However,she was a fighter. Despite being incapacitated much of her little life-she was always cheerful and tried to be positive. She was indeed a very brave and cheerful little girl.
At one point, however, when she was only 7 years old, the Doctor said that nothing more could be done and it seemed that Rebecca would not get better. Her parents bravely decided to allow yet another operation despite Rebecca being very weak and against all the odds-it was a success.
Despite this, Rebecca became very depressed-she no longer wanted to attend school (something she had previously enjoyed) and she didn’t even want to see her friends. Although Woodlands Cancer Care had funded Rebecca, her Sister and their Dad to swim with the Dolphins when they had visited Florida, the charity became involved once again.
Woodlands Cancer Care suggested a visit to Disneyland, Paris and this was gratefully accepted by the family. It was wonderful. Rebecca returned home and couldn’t wait to go to school to tell her friends all about the characters she’d met and all the things she had done. She was like her old self again.
We, as a Charity felt truly privileged to have been involved with this plucky little girl and, at present, Rebecca is now 17 years old. She was extremely fortunate.
Most of the others children she came into contact with during her years of hospitalisation who had also been diagnosed with neuroblastoma, have not been so fortunate.
Please help us to support children like Rebecca. Without help we would not have been able to give Rebecca and her family the holidays which meant so much to them.
