A desperate family is in a race against time to save 6-year-old Lily.
Join Mann Made Creations in helping a desperate family raise funds for life-saving treatment for six-year-old Lily.
Lily and her family need our help to get Lily, 6, to America for potentially life-saving treatment.
Lily McKelvey was discovered to have diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG), a deadly form of child cancer, after falling ill back in January. On January 12, Jack and Elizabeth Mckelvey heard the news that no parent ever wants to hear – their six-year-old daughter Lily was diagnosed with an extremely rare tumour that grows in the stem of the brain.
Those with the condition sadly typically have a life expectancy of six to nine months. Around thirty British children a year are diagnosed with the condition.
Lily is currently undergoing 13 sessions of radiotherapy at Addenbrooke’s Hospital, in Cambridge as a form of palliative care to optimise her quality of life with her family. Doctors explained to Lily’s parents, Jack and Elizabeth, who live in Marks Tey, Essex, Lily’s life expectancy is between just six to nine months.
There is a £370,000 fundraiser set up to send Lily for treatment in America to save her life but time is running out! Lily is ready to go for treatment to save her, but more donations are still needed.
Please join Mann Made Creations and donate and share words of encouragement.
