My story

[p]I am running the Manchester Marathon on Sunday 7th April and will be raising money for CCLG in the name of this beautiful brave little girl so that she can give back to the charities that have helped her.[/p][p]On 18th December Seren was diagnosed with accute lymphoblastic leukaemia. Before then she was a happy and bright little girl with a kind, caring nature. She still is all of those things but, in addition, she is now facing a 2-3 year battle with cancer.[/p][p]The photo was taken 10 days before her diagnosis as she prepared for Christmas, and just 5 days before she was admitted to hospital on 13th December. They spent Christmas at Birmingham children’s hospital and she faced it with strength and courage. Seren now attends appointments at BCH where she undergoes multiple weekly chemotherapy treatments, as well as a range of other drugs and procedures including general anaesthetics, lumbar punctures, bone marrow tests, blood tests, transfusions and antibiotic treatments for infections. Her immune system is weak but they allow her to stay at home between treatments and administer steroids, pain relief and other oral medication at home or through the community nurse team.[/p][p]Today she has started a new course of chemotherapy for MRD.[/p][p]During her stay in hospital some friends raised £150+ which they donated to beads of courage, in Seren's name. This brought her so much joy by paying for 3 sets of beads for other children, that she now wants to fundraise for all the charities that are helping us through this. Her mum has set up a gofundme page and they have already raised over £1000 in Seren's name.[/p][p]Seren says she would like to hand over a ‘big cheque that says it’s from me, just like they do on TV’[/p]
