Six months on from our Christmas Appeal, Andrew’s Warrior Princess is back to full health and says “thank you”.
You may recall six-year-old Hayley, whose inspiring story was featured in our last Christmas Appeal. Hayley went through what no child should—toxic chemotherapy and radiation treatment to attack the cancer growing in her nasal cavity.
Her father, Andrew, called her his Warrior Princess.
Thankfully, Hayley is now doing much better. Last Christmas, the family celebrated a year of Hayley being cancer free. As her dad put it, “Cheekiness and smiles are back to full strength”.
No child should have to endure painful cancer treatment. And thanks to your funding for new immunotherapy research investigating more targeted, effective cancer treatments, they may not have to in the near future.
Thank you for helping to raise an amazing $115,000 through Cancer Council’s Christmas Appeal, money which has helped researchers like Associate Professor Darcy continue their important immunotherapy research work, finding kinder ways to treat cancers like Hayley’s.
