A MUM revealed doctors diagnosed her daughter with anxiety before a CT scan revealed a brain tumor the size of an egg.
Lily Harding first went to the doctor after vomiting in 2020, but her mother Toni Jenkins feared something serious was wrong, so she persisted in taking her to the doctor.
In fact, she had a cancerous tumor in the left frontal lobe of her brain.
The then nine-year-old boy had undergone three major surgeries as well as chemotherapy and radiation at Manchester Children’s Hospital.
But despite everything being clear, a three-month checkup earlier this month revealed the cancer had now spread to her spine. Manchester Evening News reported.
Toni said: “At first, the doctors thought it was coronavirus anxiety and went into lockdown.
“Then they thought it might be acid reflux. We brought her back the next morning because she was still sick and so they gave her a CT scan which showed a large tumor in the frontal lobes. her left.
“It’s about the size of a large egg.
“We were completely devastated. Everything happened so fast. We just had to keep her strong.”
Toni explained that her daughter has atypical rhabdomyolysis (ATRT), a cancer of the central nervous system and is extremely rare and aggressive.
She believes the family may need to consider alternative treatment options for Lily, which could cost thousands of pounds.
A family friend has set up a gofundme with the aim of taking Lily to Disneyland but that can’t happen because of Covid.
Toni said: “If the option is to have treatment, we will need help raising funds to take her away.
“Despite everything, I want to say that Lily is a lovely, pure, happy, strong and brave little girl – she copes with everything like a true warrior.
“We don’t give up and we will do all we can to save our beautiful daughter, the world would be so much darker without her.”
