Super Keeva’s Journey
Super Keeva was 3 years old when she was initially diagnosed with Anaplastic Rhabdomyosarcoma of the upper thigh. She had chemotherapy, surgery and Proton Beam Therapy. She was incredibly brave throughout her treatment & never complained. Her Proton Beam therapy was in the USA & although it made her very tired, she loved seeing the different animals including an Alligator! She finished her treatment in May 2015 & was soon back to her usual self, running around outside. However in November 2016 a follow up scan showed that she had relapsed, so she had to have surgery again & will start chemotherapy again soon. As a result of her surgery, she is in a plaster cast hip spica for 2-3 months which means she cant move or be independent in her care. She will then need to use a wheelchair for 6-8 months as well as having ongoing cancer treatment. Although its been a big blow for the family, she continues to take things in her stride & never complains. She makes the most of every opportunity to play with her sisters & watch her favourite tv programme; Paw Patrol.
