This week, we want to help create a new bedroom for 8 year old Evie Shallom from Bracknell. We heard about Evie from her teacher, Ami Shaw.
Evie was recently diagnosed with stage 4 lymphoma. The past couple of months have been very challenging for her. She has been in and out of hospital and is now having chemotherapy. Incredibly, just before Evie began treatment, she decided to cut her hair short so she could donate it to make 2 wigs for other children having chemotherapy. I can only imagine how scary it must have been for this little girl to be faced with so much at such a young age. For her to think of donating her hair at a time like that is truly inspirational.
Her beautiful mum Nicola also shaved her head as soon as she found out Evie was going to lose her hair and managed to raise £1500 for the Little Princess Trust charity, and donated enough hair to make 4 wigs.
Unfortunately, one of the chemo medicines isn't agreeing with Evie and it's making her quite ill, so she is finding the treatment more difficult. Evie's mum and dad, Nicola and Aron, would really like to redecorate her room to make it more comfortable for her - a place where she can relax and recuperate as she goes through the treatment.
We would absolutely love to be able to give this amazing young girl a new bedroom, and with your help I'm sure we can do it!
