On the 14th June 2022 my beautiful niece was taken to Alder Hey A&E and we were given the news that Silva had a brain tumour, that night she was taken for surgery to relieve the pressure off her spine and have a drain fitted.
On the 21st June we were given the heart-breaking news that Silva has Medulloblastoma, a form of brain cancer.
Silva has had 5 surgeries, 6 weeks of proton therapy at Christie’s and now getting through her chemotherapy at Alder Hey, she has also celebrated her 5th birthday.
Silva received a Milly Bag whilst on the ward, and thank you is not enough for the help and understanding that was shown to our family at such a heart-breaking time.
We would love to be able to give another family who will be going through a difficult diagnosis the support which Silva received when we first found out about her diagnosis. (Bethany – oncology auntie May 2023).
