CHILDHOOD CANCER AWARENESS MONTH
September is childhood cancer awareness month and we are fundraising in dedication to a Mayhem family who sadly lost their youngest daughter Orla last month.
At just two years old Orla Tuckwell has endured four operations and gruelling chemotherapy, after being diagnosed with a medulloblastoma. Orla, from Broxbourne in Hertfordshire, was constantly sick for weeks before the brain tumour was discovered. Biopsy results then revealed the mutation of her tumour type is so rare specialists cannot find another case anywhere in Europe. The specialists were unsure how well the NHS standard of care would treat the tumour, and sadly, Orla relapsed in July 2023. She passed away three weeks later, on 12th August, in a hospice with mum Naomi, dad Adam, and older sisters Ava, nine, and seven-year-old Poppy by her side.
We have pin badges in Mayhem’s reception which you can purchase or donate directly following the link below.
We would like to help the family raise awareness of this horrible disease and please donate however big or small to show them the support from our Mayhem Family.
