Thank you all so much for your support! Hannah is currently in Children's Hospital receiving her 2nd round of chemo. She is responding extremely well to chemo and according to the most recent ultrasound her tumor has been all but eliminated. She still will receive her 52 weeks of chemo, but her prognosis is looking good.
Thank you everyone for your support and a special thank you to Children's Hospital!
After losing both their home and livelihood in one horrific fire one year ago, life was finally beginning to get back to normal for Hannah and her family. That was until Hannah started getting sick. Dozens of doctors visits and just as many misdiagnosis left the family feeling confused and frustrated, but it wasnt until Hannah's stomach began to grow that they got really concerned. After a handful of doctors visits and diagnosis' like bad posture and constipation the frustration was starting to set in, but it wasn't until Hannah started having trouble breathing and was airlifted to Vancouver Childrens Hopsital that the real nightmare began.
First a tumor in her stomach and a biopsy which showed that it wasn't a tumor, but inflammation left Hannah in critical condition for several days. Than the possibility that she may have lymphoma, then leukemia and finally, after almost a week of tests there was a diagnosis.
Stage 4, Rhabdomyosarcoma.
What your contribution provides
Because Hannah's family is from Vancouver Island and she is being treated in Vancouver Childrens Hospital there are a great deal of transportation expenses.
Helping the family with these donations will allow both of Hannah's parents to remain on the mainland with her while she undergoes treatement. By keeping both parents close, not only are the trials of chemotherapy easier on Hannah, but it makes it possible for one parent to leave at a time to care for their baby daughter Hailey who is under the care of Hannah's grandmother.
Your dontations will also afford the family the ability to take Hannah to the zoo, the aquarium and any other venues that get her away from the hopsital when her condition improves.
By helping support this family you are helping them to eliminate the worries of financial obligations and you are allowing them to focus solely on being there for their daughter as she battles this horrific disease.
