Mia Chambers Journey - When nearly a dozen pupils at a Merthyr Tydfil primary school came down with a nasty sickness bug in April 2016, little Mia Chambers was initially thought to be one of the unfortunate victims. However, shortly after, her Mum, Kirsty, found a lump in little Mia’s tummy and her parents took her to their local GP, who then referred Mia to her nearest hospital.

Her condition was far more severe than her parents ever imagined and Mia was subsequently diagnosed with stage 4 high risk neuroblastoma. Four years old at the time, Mia started an aggressive regime of treatment including intensive chemotherapy, surgery, a stem cell transplant, radiotherapy and most recently, immunotherapy.

When Mia finishes immunotherapy, this will mark the end of her frontline treatment in the UK. Due to rates of relapse for neuroblastoma being high and relapsed neuroblastoma having low survival rates; Mia’s family would like for her to access an overseas based clinical trial as additional cancer therapy, in the hope that it will help prevent a dangerous relapse.

Unfortunately, clinical trials overseas are not NHS funded and can cost thousands of pounds, which is why Mia’s family have started to fundraise with “Solving Kids’ Cancer”. Supporting Mia’s fundraising campaign will help to ensure that Mia can access all the treatment options available to her, no matter where they exist in the world, to help her beat cancer.

A strong willed, determined and loving little girl, Mia loves nothing more than playing and interacting with others. “This monster will not beat us and we will do everything in our power to make sure it stays away” - Josh and Kirsty, Mia’s Mum and Dad.

Mia’s story can be followed via her Facebook page and more information can be found on the “Solving Kids’ Cancer” website at www.SolvingKidsCancer.org.uk.

We look forward to seeing you there!
