Please Support 4 Year Old – Ellie-Mai

Dear all,

Please help us to help this lovely little girl and her family.

Ellie-Mai is a 4 year old little girl who was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia in 2014, at just 2 years old. She has battled the past 2 years with countless trips to theatre, chemo cycles and ongoing side effects.

On the 24th November it was confirmed that Ellie had relapsed, her parents worst nightmare, this time round isn’t as straight forward as just having chemo. Ellie will have to undergo a bone marrow transplant. She is going to be spending the next 6 weeks on the Oncology ward as the risk of infection at this time is very high. Ellie spent her Christmas here.

The treatment is very intense. Ellie will begin to lose her hair again in the next 4 weeks and will have many physical changes as well as sickness and other side effects from chemo. As many of you know hospitals are an expensive place and if we come together as a community we can help take the stress of this family fighting a second battle with cancer. Both parents have had to leave their jobs to care for both Ellie who is 4 and her 10 month old younger sister.

I had the pleasure of meeting young Ellie recently, she is a lovely girl with a big heart, please help us to help Ellie and her family (Mike Lepic – 23 Foundation).
