Isla’s journey began in March 2019 when she started to feel unwell, she had a temperature, felt sick and had a slight tummy ache. After investigation Isla was diagnosed with cancer. Isla's family was told she had a Wilms Tumour, a type of Kidney Cancer.
Within two weeks of diagnoses, Isla was given two different chemotherapy drugs for four weeks. In mid-May, Isla had an operation to remove the tumour, her kidney and her appendix. The doctors were able to confirm that the cancer was stage 1 and that it had all been removed. After 4 weeks of chemotherapy, Isla rang the end of treatment bell.
