Little Feet - Long Walk

Hello and welcome to my blog. This blog is the journey of our family after Millie, our 2 year old daughter, was discovered to have a large brain tumour. The tumour was caused by an aggresive cancer named anaplastic ependymoma. Please feel free to read as much as you want and spread the word. If you want to know more details about the diagnosis then it is best to start at "The beginning ... " which was written in May 2011. But you are welcome to follow us from today. I have created pages that summarise the events leading up to the start of going to Florida for proton radiotherapy at the beginning of June 2011, about 8 weeks after diagnosis.

Love bomb

Thank you love bombers!
Your messages of love and support have arrived at an amazingly appropriate time. Living with cancer, the side effects of cancer and the after effects of cancer is proving pretty tough. We have our good times but we also have our bad times and the last few days have definitely been a low. It helps to know that people we don't know are kind enough to think of us and offer their love. It has also reminded me that we are not alone and that all I have to do is reach out and ask.

I must say a huge thank you to our dear friend, Dith, who nominated us for a love bomb. For those who do not know what a love bomb is then check out this amazing place:

Blogging was a kind of therapy for me whilst we were in America, as well as a way to keep family, friends and concerned strangers informed of Millie's progress. I know there are many people out there wandering how we are getting on and it is a long time since I last blogged. And I think I would benefit from some regular blogging therapy. Therefore, I am making a late new year's resolution - I will blog more often. So much has happened in the last 6 months I'm just not quite sure where to start.

Millie is doing amazingly well but we are still taking it one step at a time.
Thank you.
