What we’re fighting for

Edie getting ready for her MRI scan

I spent a little while looking over this photo and deciding if I should post it or not. I’ve decided I should. Whilst it’s not distressing to look at for an outsider, this is the epitome of heartbreak for us. Spending a day in the hospital, whilst they sedate your baby to see if her tumour has grown. This is the reality of DIPG, it’s known for its aggression it’s known for its mercilessness. How could this happen to someone so small, innocent and fragile? How is that fair? It‘s not, it’s not fair to us, and it’s certainly not fair to Edie May. 😭

Please, please keep sharing our cause, please keep flooding your news feeds with her face, please keep telling anybody who will listen, and shout it to those who won’t. This is a life, a life that could be saved with the help of other people. In fact, it’s not just one life, it’s many. By helping save Edie, you’re saving our whole family, not just Ashleigh and Steve, not just Niamh and Lenny, but all of the Grandparents, Aunties, Uncles, Cousins and even friends that she means the world to. Please keep our mission going, help us with every fibre of your beings. You’ll be saving lives. Thank you
