Mollie was diagnosed, at 2 years old, with embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma in August 2018. The tumour was located between her eye and sinus causing her to lose the sight in her left eye. The only visual symptoms she had was a slightly droopy eyelid which developed over a period of 24-36 hours. Other than that she was very well and a typical 2 year old! The GP initially thought she may have an allergy however the next day I was not happy with her eye and took her to A&E. The nurse who triaged her recognised the warning signs having had an eye cancer as a young child. A CT scan later and a 2cm x 3cm mass was found deep inside Mollie’s face. After a series of invasive tests we received the diagnosis of a cancer I couldn’t even pronounce. Mollie started intense chemotherapy which involved a hospital admission every 3 weeks for 3 days. In October 2018, we travelled to Jacksonville, Florida so Mollie could receive Proton Radiation. Radiation is an important part of treating rhabdomyosarcoma and despite knowing the awful long term side effects this treatment was needed to try and save Mollie’s life. Despite the awful reasons we were in Florida we had a truly wonderful time as a family. Mollie and her big sister Grace still talk about their ‘holiday!’ On return from Florida, Mollie finished intense chemo and then completed 12 months of maintenance chemotherapy. Treatment finished in January 2020 and Mollie now has regular MRI scans to monitor the residual tumour. Alice’s Arc was one of the first rhabdomyosarcoma pages I found and Sara has been supporting me from the very early days!
