Story

[p][i]This fundraising page builds on the previous Virgin Money Giving page for the Elin Rose Appeal. The overall total can now be found at www.elinrose.co.uk/support. Thank you so much for your unbelievable support and incredible fundraising.[/i][/p][p][br][/p][p][i]The Elin Rose Appeal was launched in 2013 to help our daughter Elin.[/i][/p][p][i][br][/i][/p][p][i]In 2011, Elin - who was then aged 5 - was diagnosed with Ewings Sarcoma, a rare bone cancer. With incredible positivity, Elin faced seven chemotherapy combinations, radiotherapy and surgery to remove part of a bone in her leg. Her cartwheels and smiles amazed us all.[/i][/p][p][br][/p][p][i]We created the Elin Rose Appeal to allow us to access further treatment options for Elin, and for future research into Ewings Sarcoma. Over £140,000 has now been raised, through the incredible efforts of friends and family - it is an amazing total and we are so grateful to so many for their incredible support. In the summer of 2014, helped by this fundraising, we took Elin to the US for further treatment. This helped to treat the lesions in her lungs and gave us huge hope. Elin then continued her treatment in the UK but things suddenly changed in the spring of 2015. The chemotherapy stopped being effective and further treatment was not possible. Elin died peacefully at home in May 2015.[/i][/p][p][br][/p][p][i]We are completely devastated to lose Elin, who was so full of joy and lived her life to the full - in defiance of the disease that sought to rule it. She has touched so many people, and your response to the appeal gave such hope to us all. The fundraising is now for research into treatments for Ewings Sarcoma. In collaboration with the Ewing’s Sarcoma Research Trust we are supporting Ewing’s research at the University of Leeds. We have also been working with the wonderful team at The Royal Marsden and the Institute of Cancer Research and, as a result of the fundraising, we can help to fund crucial research into treatments for this rare, underfunded and devastating disease. The ICR appointed a PhD student - Antonio Romo Morales - and The Elin Rose PhD Studentship began at the Institute of Cancer Research in London, in September 2016. After four years of research, this PhD was successfully completed in December 2020 and Dr Romo Morales will be continuing his research to further the progress he has already made.[/i][/p][p][br][/p][p][i]Thank you so much for supporting the Elin Rose Appeal. It honours our beautiful girl in the most precious and positive way.[/i][/p][p][br][/p][p][i]Sian, Martin and family x[/i][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p]
