Biography

Elsie was a happy, healthy two year old when she started to become wobbly on her feet. This was followed by sporadic bouts of vomiting and headaches. Numerous visits to doctors and hospital ended with us being sent for an MRI scan where they discovered the tumour.

Elsie underwent a 12 hour emergency surgery the next day but unfortunately the tumour couldn't fully be removed. It was after this surgery that we were told they believed that it was cancerous but we had to wait 5 days for official results.

Surgery left Elsie with an unsafe swallow, eye damage, speech difficulties and she was unable to sit/stand unaided. This was diagnosed as Posterior Fossa Syndrome.

Once recovered from surgery she started a five cycle intensive chemotherapy protocol in the hope that the remaining tumour would shrink. Following this she had a Stem Cell Harvest and further surgery which left her with right sided weakness.

In October last year we spent a month in isolation where Elsie had High Dose Chemo and a Stem Cell Rescue.

Elsie currently has up to three physio sessions a week and has recently started walking again. Her unsafe swallow has also corrected itself.
We remain on three monthly MRIs but these currently show No Evidence of Disease
