Please read Ella’s story below here. We would like to thank Ella’s mum and Dad for sending us their story:

This is our amazing daughter Ella, she is 8 years old, and loves to be dancing, singing, playing Camogie, soccer and horse riding! She’s such a bubbly little person.

Summer 2018 was back and forth to the hospital, with pains in her hip, which progressed to a lump, and unfortunately like so many, was misdiagnosed with growing pains!  
It wasn’t till she was reeling in pain, and rushed to hospital in an ambulance, and after scans, that she was diagnosed with Ewing Sarcoma.

It’s hard to explain the feeling that goes through you when you’re told this life changing news. September was a blur. The initial aim was to control the pain. It was horrific being by her side, and unable to do anything. Thankfully, after a dose of chemo, the lump shrunk enough to relieve her sciatic nerve.

Here we are now, just about to start round 14 of 18, and about to head to Germany, for Proton Beam Therapy, and to finish with surgery in Birmingham, after that.

Ella has been through so much, and still has a lot remaining to do, but she keeps smiling, cracking jokes, and making us all laugh!

Her two brothers Josh and Sean are brilliant at keeping her laughing too.

We take each day as it comes, making sure we are having as much fun as possible along the way, her nurses and doctors at both Crumlin and The Mercy Hospitals are incredible. They make hospital trips a fun experience, as best they can.

At the beginning of treatment, we were told there will be chemo, radiotherapy and surgery.
When we were told that we could travel to Germany for Proton Therapy, we grabbed it with both hands. 

In the coming weeks, Ella will be travelling to Germany to begin her treatment.

Thank you so much,
Tony & Amy, Josh Sean and Ella Dempsey
