Fairall family makes £5K donation to Alice's Arc
Their daughter, Sophie, was recently diagnosed with rhabdomyosarcoma and her family are fundraising for the charity.
We would like to thank the Fairall family for their extremely generous donation of £5K to the charity. Their 9 year old daughter, Sophie, was diagnosed with stage 3 anaplastic rhabdomyosarcoma in September 2020, after suffering with tummy pains for six months. The tumour was 12cms and located in the bladder area. 95% of the tumour was removed via surgery and Sophie is currently undergoing intensive chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
We are so grateful for their support of Alice's Arc and are looking forward to working with them to help find more treatment options at relapse and to make further discoveries in to the biology of rhabdomyosarcoma that can be translated to clinical trials.
Sophie's story can be found by reading
written by her mother. Please do follow this open and honest account of a journey with childhood cancer. We wish Sophie and her family all the very best as she undergoes treatment.
