Please help 2 year old Louie kick cancer's butt - Updates - Givealittle

  • Evaluation Week      17 July 2019

    Hello lovely people,

    Below is An update from my sister on how evaluation week is going - it has not been the news we had hoped for. We are very heartbroken but still fighting forward!!! So please keep Louie in mind and send your positive vibes to him or include him in your thoughts to whom ever you may pray to xxx

    Louie had a CT on Monday and an MRI yesterday to see how he is responding to the chemo. Unfortunately it showed pretty significant growth. It’s pretty rare for this kind of cancer not to respond to the first line treatment so the doctors have had to come up with a new plan over night. We have been admitted to starship again for the next couple of days and Louie has started a new chemo already this evening. His radiation has now been moved up and will start on Monday. That has taken the option of proton therapy completely away so we will not be travelling to America for treatment.

    This is obviously not the news we thought we would be hearing this week. It’s been a rough couple of days. We feel better that there’s a new plan and we have to stay positive that it will work and kill this stupid thing that’s taking up our babies entire abdomen now.

    The doctors will be keeping a close eye on his kidneys as the new growth has started an obstruction and they are slightly dilated.

    Please keep up the prayers and positive vibes or whatever you believe in.

    He is still smiling and seems to be feeling ok.

    Thank you again for all of the support. ❤️❤️❤️❤️

    With a tentative yes from the USA (awaiting a new scan and a decision re Louie’s risks involved with travel) it would be amazing if you could help share the word as it could be as soon as 3 weeks that my sister and Louie would need to go!🙂 We have some fundraising initiatives coming in the next week or so but anything you and your wider network could do to help us spread the word that would be amazing!!

    Lots of love #teamlouie

  • Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!      3 July 2019

    A week into our givealittle journey and we are in awe of the kindness and generosity we have received ! Your kind words and well wishes have really lifted The Bell’s and our extended family’s spirits.

    Louie has had a hard week this week with a big chemo session on Monday and feeling pretty unwell after that. Then tonight he has been admitted to hospital with a fever that his dr’s want to keep an eye on. He is still being a strong little soldier as are his mum and dad whose strength continues to inspire us.

    We are just blown away by the donations we have received to date and all offers of love and support.

    We wanted to take a moment to express our appreciation and to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for everything!! We will keep you in the loop as we hear back from USA hopefully in the next few days and of course on Louie’s journey from there! Any help to keep sharing Louie’s story is greatly appreciated!

    Lots of love #teamLouie xx
