My story

[p]My daughter Aiya was diagnosed with Leukaemia in January 2017, literally a month before her 2nd birthday. I will never ever forget those words....your daughter has cancer. Those words make me cry still today. [/p][p]Aiya had a really difficult journey and the first 9 months of 2017 we barely left the hospital. She was constantly struck down with infection after infection, as the chemotherapy did its job of breaking down the Leukaemia cells, it was also wiping out all immunity she had. She was so small and experienced so much. Neck lines, Hickman Lines, endless amount of blood transfusions, platelet transfusions, NG tubes, high dose chemotherapy directly into her spinal fluid and into her Hickman Line, oral chemotherapy for 18 months, physiotherapy, lung damage, complete hair loss twice, IV antibiotics, fluids, endless general anaesthetics, the list goes on.[/p][p]Aiya is my Princess Warrior. She’s full of life, does everything with a smile on her face. She has been my rock, as nothing fazes her. On 3rd July 2019 Aiya rang the End of Treatment bell. Another very emotional day, as this symbolised everything she has been through.[/p][p]I’m so proud of her and her brother Zain, they have both experienced above and beyond what any child should. It was hard for me to accept what was happening but for Zain who was 7 at the time, he astonished me with his strength and courage.[/p][p]I now have this fantastic opportunity to run the London Marathon for Cure Leukaemia , which obviously is a charity very close to my heart. Throughout this whole journey running has been my saviour. I run for my mental health. [/p][p]Please please if you can support and donate to my page I really would appreciate it. Thank you 😊 [/p][p]All funds raised from this page will be invested directly into the national Trials Acceleration Programme (TAP) network which Cure Leukaemia began funding from January 2020. [/p][p]The Cure Leukaemia has made a 3-year £3m commitment to invest in this network to fund specialist research nurses and clinical roles in 12 blood cancer centres across the United Kingdom allowing them to open and run clinical trials for pioneering treatments for the disease. Patients from a UK catchment area of over 20 million people will have access, as a result, to potentially life-saving treatments not currently available through standard care. [/p][p]Every penny donated will directly help the save lives of patients like Aiya across the UK and hasten global progress towards finding effective treatments for all forms of blood cancer.[/p]
