Niamh was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive Childhood cancer called Neuroblastoma (Stage 4 High Risk) just before Christmas 2010 when she was just 3 years old. Since then Niamh has spent countless days and nights in hospital for treatment that has included Rapid Cojec Chemotherapy, a 4 hour operation to remove the tumor which was located on her adrenal gland, high dose chemotherapy and stem cell transplant and 14 treatments of Radiotherapy. On top of this there have been lots of blood and platelet transfusions, lots and lots of scans and general hospital visits and loads of time away from Home. Despite all this Niamh still remains the happiest, kindest, Most caring little girl you will ever meet. She is always smiling and loves a cuddle with her big sister Hannah or her Mummy and daddy. In November 2011 the cancer came back and there is now no treatment in the UK that can cure Niamh. In the US this is not the case and there are many relapse Protocols. This is where we need to take this amazing little Girl to give her the best chance of survival. The treatment Niamh needs is at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and costs around £450,000. Please donate if you can and help us save Niamh.Charity website
