My Story

Thank you for supporting me and the more than 300,000 kids worldwide who will be diagnosed with cancer this year. By sharing the gifts of your time, talent and money with the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, you're supporting research to give all kids with cancer a better chance for a cure. dignosed with tumour October 2012 in Crumlin Hospital I had a what the General Practitioner thought was a sinus infection from March last year and had antiboctics and it cleared then it came back in April and got more antibiotics. Then in May, my doc thought it was a dust allergy from the building work being done in the school. I got the back braces on my teeth in June and was told I needed to come back in September to get 4 teeth out and to get my front braces. I found a lump on my neck on Thursday the 7th of September and went to the GP on Friday the 8th of September. He thought it was glandular and told me to come back the next weel. I went back to Greta the denist on Tuesday the 12th of September, Greta wasn't happy because i couldn't open my mouth wide and then she saw the lump and she talked to another denist and rang the gp about blood tests. She asked would i go to Limerick to see a friend of hers, a dental sugeon, and that appointment was on the 26th of September and when I was there they x-rayed me and told me it might be a cyst so would i come back that Tuesday for a CT scan. I then got called on Thursday the 4th of October and they told me i had two growths in my head and they were going to send me to Dublin to Crumlin hospital on Sunday for more scans and tests and a biopsy and on Friday the 12th they told me it was a nasopharyngeal carcinoma(cancer). I have had three intensive rounds of chemo and am near the end of 8 weeks of treatment of radiotherapy at the moment and i have had 2 more bouts of chemo with that......so far
