In December 2013, 52 Lives was contacted by a family friend of Claire Ollier, an 8 year old girl who lives in Queensland Australia. Claire was diagnosed with an extremely aggressive brain tumour in September.
This little girl had been through 7 hours of brain surgery, and was having radiotherapy and chemotherapy. Claire's mum and dad were obviously devastated.
Their friends and family have been trying to raise money to help and one friend, Julie Stevens, thought the newly formed 52 Lives community might be able to do something for Claire.
52 lives published its inaugral request for help on Facebook, which was read by more than a thousand people in just a few days.
If you would like to help Claire further, please contact 52 Lives or visit The Claire Ollier Appeal Facebook page www.facebook.com/theclaireollierappeal
