Siobhan Mather's Fight Against Neuroblastoma / Siobhan's 3 Peaks Challenge 4 Treatment in America
About the group
Our goal is to raise lots of money, so that Siobhan can obtain very important medical treatment which will offer her the best chance of winning her fight against Neuroblastoma.
On 1st May 2015 a beautiful angel was born, Siobhan Margaret Mather. She bought fun and feistiness with her independent character to everyone around her. On 1st July 2017, aged just 2, Siobhan became lethargic and was taken to her GP. After being referred to Barnet General Hospital, it was discovered she had a tumour. She was transferred to Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) where she was diagnosed with Stage 4 Neuroblastoma, a rare child cancer. Neuroblastoma is a very rare cancer and only 100 children per year are diagnosed in the U.K.
Siobhan has undergone various treatments in the UK and to further her chances of a full recovery she needs a vaccine which is only available in America. She is the bravest 2-year-old girl and is taking everything that this terrible disease can throw at her in her stride. High-risk neuroblastoma has a high chance of relapse; and relapsed Neuroblastoma has low survival rates. Relapsed Neuroblastoma is the most dangerous form of the disease. There is no standard relapse protocol for relapsed Neuroblastoma, which means clinical trials are often the only hope for many children. Such clinical trials are rarely available via the NHS, so where families wish to access this treatment, their only option is abroad, in the hope of helping them beat this cancer. In the USA, there have been a number of trials with high success rates. The cost for the course of treatment, as well as the associated costs of travelling abroad to access it are estimated in the region of £220,000.
The Bradley Lowery foundation is helping Siobhan and her family in order to help achieve their overall target.
