Grace’s Story

When the doctors broke the news that Grace had cancer, her mum Pip felt like the walls were closing in.

“I just couldn’t breathe. It was awful. The worst part was, we were so upset and Grace kept asking us if we were alright.” said Pip.

“Grace got hit really hard by the chemotherapy. When we were at home, she’d sleep all the time. I didn’t know if it was normal. And then she stopped walking, so I was just carrying her everywhere.” said Pip.

Grace’s treatment damaged the nerves in her legs. The chemotherapy made her bones so brittle her leg broke. Then came sepsis, infections, weight gain and kidney failure.

Grace has been in and out of the hospital for two long years.  But if everything goes well over the next few weeks, Grace could finish her cancer treatment by Christmas.

Your Christmas donation could help fund research to find gentler, safer treatments for leukaemia and other life-threatening conditions – treatments made just for kids.

It could mean children like Grace spend less time sick in hospital and more time with their families.
