(PRWEB UK) 5 March 2013
Stacey Mowle is a fun loving seven-year old who is in DietAssist co-creator Rob Woodgate’s son’s class at school.
Except, she hasn’t been in school very much recently. She has a rare form of cancer called Neuroblastoma, which is a tumour that develops in nerve tissues.
She was diagnosed in May 2010, and after 18 months of chemotherapy, radiotherapy, surgery, bone marrow transplants and blood transfusions, she was told she was in remission and could soon start coming back to school.
But Neuroblastoma is an aggressive cancer, with an 80% relapse rate, and although the family hoped beyond hope that Stacey would be one of the lucky few, their fears were realised just before Christmas last year.
Stacey’s cancer had returned and was even more aggressive than before.
They put on a brave face to give Stacey the best Christmas they possibly could, and watched her little face light up with all the magic that Christmas brings to a seven year old.
But now they face a harsh reality. There is no relapse treatment available in the UK so their only hope is to get treatment in the USA or Germany.
The problem is that time is running out for Stacey, and the treatment she needs costs an astronomical £500,000. At this moment they have only raised 18.5K.
The DietAssist team would like to highlight Stacey’s plight and urge everyone to dig deep and help to give Stacey the only chance she has left.
DietAssist co-creator, Rob Woodgate, said “We would ask that everyone who reads this gives whatever they can to help Stacey. Every little bit helps enormously. If every person in the UK gave just one penny, she would be on the way to America as soon as possible."
