AMAZING GRACE: Chalfont St Peter girl in battle against brain tumour

 Published on: 23rd May 2020   |   By: Tim Green   |   Category: Uncategorized

A 14-year-old from Chalfont St Peter is trying to raise £36,000 so she can be treated with a drug that will give her the best chance to fight her chance.

Grace Gaskell’s oncologist has recommended that she is treated with Everolimus which is not currently available on the NHS.

Grace, a pupil at Joan of Arc School in Rickmansworth, was diagnosed with a rare form of brain tumour in July 2018. Since her diagnosis, Grace has undergone two gruelling years of treatment and chemotherapy.

A GoFundMe page has been created by Mary Hughes and Grace’s mother Rebecca. Despite her diagnosis, Grace is determined to lead a normal life.

The page reads: “Grace continues to inspire countless others with her determination, optimism and cheerfulness. From throwing herself into judo, attending air cadets and dance classes, learning to sail and to ride a horse and donating her hair to other cancer patients, our amazing Grace never gives up. She has also won a number of awards for her bravery.”

Now Grace is appealing for help to raise £36,000 to get her treated with Everolimus.

There will be further costs for other medication and therapies that Grace may benefit from.

If Everolimus cannot be accessed privately or if it is unsuccessful £55,000 will be required for Dendritic Cell Vaccination.

All surplus funds will support the Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust
