Super Olivia’s Journey
Super Olivia was just 3 years old when she was diagnosed with Rhabdomyosarcoma in April 2020, which was found to be affecting her bones, bone marrow and lungs. She is currently undergoing a particularly gruelling treatment, involving both radiotherapy and chemotherapy and has been such a brave little girl that she was referred for a pair of Supershoes.
Olivia’s consultant says that she is doing as well as he could expect, although she has been quite poorly lately from the side effects of the treatment, but is looking forward to showing off her Supershoes to everyone, once she’s on her feet again and, as her Mum, Kellie says, “back to her normal, happy, gorgeous, little cheeky self.”
Olivia will still have a year’s maintenance treatment to go through, once the current round is finished. Kellie and the family is keeping everything crossed for a positive result, “We just hope and pray we get the good news she deserves and we can start to rebuild our lives and mend our broken hearts.”
We’re sending all our positive thoughts to you too, Olivia!
