Leila's Story

Leila was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia (ALL) when she was 13 years old. Now 32 Leila told us

I consider myself to be a survivor but I live with a lot of long-term, late effects as a direct result of having chemotherapy and total body irradiation. The one that affects me most is avascular necrosis in my knees, hips, legs, shoulder and they suspect its in my ankles now too. Avascular necrosis means bone death and happens when the blood supply gets cut off causing the joints to collapse. The only cure is hip replacement etc but when it comes to the tibias there’s not much they can do about it.

60% of childhood cancer survivors like Leila will suffer late effects caused by treatments used to save their lives. With your help we can find safe new treatments so that every child can survive and thrive.
