The Journey So Far....

Genevieves Journey

Its been a rather chaotic six months since we started on this journey with our beautiful Evie, so much has happened in such a short space of time!! We've even had birthdays and Christmas in hospital.

In February Evie finished her final round of chemotherapy which had been planned to treat the Acute Myeloid Leukemia, her results were looking very positive and so was her recovery. Due to the rarity of her leukaemia we were able to take part in a clinical trial that studies this type of cancer to help with future understanding and treatment. As part of this trial more in depth tests are carried out on her blood and following her last biopsy, one test had found a teeny tiny trace of something which was still lurking. At this stage she is still classed as in remission, however as this trace rises, the chance of her relapsing increases significantly. 

To prevent any further increase and relapse, her Consultant has now started the preparations for a bone marrow/stem cell transplant. This is going to be long and intensive form of treatment for her, but will give her the best chance at living a happy and relatively healthy life. 

We enjoyed a fabulous couple of weeks at home with her before she went back to Leeds last week, and the sun even came out for our trip to the beach.

Life still goes on during this challenging part of the journey and I am looking to reopen my online shops mid-March to keep a bit of 'normal', so keep your eyes peeled for opening date on social media very soon. I won't be taking on any further commissions just yet, other than those already agreed, but if you have grand plans later in the year then please do not hesitate to get in touch and we can plan ahead together.
Thank you for reading this far, we have been supported along the way by our wonderful family and friends and the amazing staff at Leeds General Infirmary. If you would like to help in any way, please consider giving blood or joining the donor register which can literally save lives! 
Take care and stay safe!
