Elizabeth Grundy

Chelsea carter with Elizabeth journey

 

We are raising funds for Elizabeth in the hope thatonce she is in remission for ALL she can access further treatment in the USthat could potentially prolong Elizabeths life and lessen the risk of relapseand other cancers.

Most children with stage four nuroblastoma have asurvival rate of 40% and children with ALL have a survival rate of 80% therehave only ever been 4 recorded cases of a child with stage 4 nuroblastoma andwith a second new cancer of ALL, so we are unsure as to what the future holds. 

Elizabeth was born with stage 4 neuroblastoma aform of children's cancer, Elizabeth's cancer was in her Lung, liver and kidneyform ten days old until 18 months old Elizabeth went through chemotherapy,radiation therapy, Stem cell harvesting, High dose chemotherapy, immunotherapy,as well as so many scans, X rays, ultra sounds, blood counts, blood andplatelet transfusions, we have lost count, plus over 7 different operations wewere given the all clear in August of 2018 and then we were given another hit outof no where Elizabeth became unwell we went to RMCH once again and found outour little super hero had bacterial/ pneumococcal meningitis/sepsis.

Elizabeth fought like thee amazing super hero shetruly is and came through it all, unfortunately this time Elizabeth had losther hearing in both ears and is now profoundly deaf, I say unfortunately but weare extremely lucky and being deaf has not stopped Elizabeth achievingeverything she wants to and her sign language is beyond amazing.

Then in may of last year Elizabeth developed a limpand was unwell so after going through what she had we decided a trip to oursecond home was needed just for a check up after over two weeks of tests andscans and LPs we received the dreaded news Elizabeth had a second cancer, thistime it was ALL (leukemia) not only was our super hero still in remission forneuroblastoma she was now about to begin yet another battle with leaukemia, andbattled she has and still is, Elizabeth is now NG fed again which means she isfed and all medication goes through a feeding tube through the nose, and is nowusing a wheel chair too which is all done to the chemotherapy and the amountshe has had since being born,  Elizabeth is now in the maintenance phaseof her treatment with another year to go we will hopefully get the all clearand ring the end of treatment bell around December 2023 the same year she willhit five years remission for her neuroblastoma she will start her remission forALL.

Elizabeth is, has been and always will be a littlesuper hero she is just unbelievable.
