Our Ball is in Memory of Amy Allen - Never Forgotten

Amy's Story

Amy was diagnosed with a Medulloblastoma Brain Tumour in sept 2003 & after initial diagnosis had to under go an 8 hour operation to remove the tumor followed by 6 weeks of daily full head and spinal radiotherapy, the next stage was 8 months of intensive chemotherapy (Due to the detrimental affect the chemo would have on Amy's appetite she was also fitted with a gastrostomy tube and fed nightly by machine ). Unfortunately a year later, the Medulloblastoma returned but this time it was in Amy's Bonemarrow and Liver not Brain (This is a very rare occurance ). Amy was given a 10% chance of survival, but began another round of 7 months of gruelling chemotherapy with the aim being, to get Amy into complete remission so that the final stage of a stem cell harvest could be performed within isolation. Miraculously the treatment worked and Amy ventured out of isolation after a 6 week stay of confinement . Almost a year to the day a routine brain scan showed that the beast was back for the final time. Amy was put on a research protocol to try and slow down the development of the tumour and give Amy a better quality of life for as long as possible, it meant daily visits to the hospital for chemotherapy and amazingly she had miraculous results again - but it was not to last - Amy passed away on 22-9-08. It was the continuing research that gave the family valuable and precious time with Amy, her legacy is that the answers she gave may finally help cure a child in the future . This research must be allowed to continue

This ball is to raise funds for The When You Wish Upon A Star Charity to enable more dreams and wishes to come true for other families. Your support will make that happen.
