Charlotte's Story

At the age of 11 Charlotte was diagnosed with a very rare and aggressive type of Acute Myeloid Leukaemia. She needed multiple rounds of Chemotherapy, a bone marrow transplant alongside other treatments to battle the immediate side effects and complications she encountered.

Now cancer free, Charlotte has been left with a number of side effects caused by the treatments used to save her life.

“Every day I struggle with daily challenges, I’ve had to have several operations, will need more in the future and I can’t carry my own children. The treatment I had took all this away from me. But we can transform the lives of future patients”

By holding a Christmas Jumper day you can help us to find safe new treatments for children like Charlotte, so they can look forward to a life after cancer, without worrying about developing late effects.
