Child Interests

Elsie loves pink, white and red roses - her middle name is Rose!
Stars, unicorns, Harry Potter,


Elsie was a happy, healthy 8 year old who loved gymnastics and playing with her sister and everything else an 8 year old loves, growing up in Yorkshire leading a normal life. She then became unwell with a chest infection and getting very low in energy before being diagnosed with Leukaemia in January 2023.

Since being diagnosed Elsie has undergone heavy chemotherapy continuing throughout 2023 and although she's thankfully in remission she will continue to receive lower level chemotherapy until Feb 2025 because childhood Leukaemia has such a long chemotherapy programme. Although she often feels very low in energy Elsie has been very cheerful and happy throughout most of her treatment - she is a ray of sunshine despite what she has had to go through.
