My name is Lily Savannah Finch and I am 4 and a half years old. On Thursday 5th March 2020, my Mummy and Daddy, Anna and Greg, got some really sad news that I have acute lymphoblastic leukaemia.

Leukaemia is a cancer of the bone marrow and white blood cells.

The doctors told us that I will have to have 2.5 years of intensive treatment in the form of chemotherapy and long hospital stays.

Everyone tells me that I have been very brave with all the blood tests and medical procedures I had to have so far. The doctors and nurses have been so kind and caring at Christchurch Hospital and help bring a smile to my face, even when I am feeling really grumpy and sick. Mummy told me that this is going a be a long journey and it some days it will be a bit bumpy and tough.

Either Mummy or Daddy has to be with all times while I am in hospital, which is makes it tricky for them to go to work. I miss my little brother Jacob who sometimes visits for short times with Mummy or Daddy, but it hard to keep him out of mischief, he likes to touch everything!

As Anna and Greg are trying to navigate their new normal, any money people donate will be used to help cover the shortfall of Anna and Greg working in a reduced capacity. This money will be used to cover their day-to-day bills and expenses. I know it is a big thing for them to reach out ask for help, but it would be truly appreciated as they face every parent's worst nightmare.

I am the sister of Anna and Aunty to Lily, who is currently battling acute lymphoblastic leukaemia.

Use of funds

Any funds raised will go towards day-day-to-day bills and expenses such as groceries, petrol and power, as Anna and Greg work in a reduced capacity.

Hair be gone!   8 May 2020

Posted by: Naomi Senior

Lily has been on a bit of bumpy ride the last couple of months. Tests results show that she has gone into remission which we are all obviously super stoked about! Unfortunately she has had a few complications since then. Lily has had to be admitted to hospital a number of times due to high temperatures and has required a few blood transfusions when her platelet count dropped low. Lily has been losing her hair due to the chemo and yesterday she decided to take the brave step to shave the remaining hair off! Greg, Lily's Daddy was chief hairdresser and did the honours! In solidarity Greg shaved his hair off as well.

Thank you so much for your generosity, it truly has meant so very much. It is hard to put into words how much it means and how it has helped ease the load. We are also so appreciative of all the prayers, they have given comfort and peace.

Thank you so much for walking this journey with Lily, Anna, Greg and Jacob.

In these challenging times we know a lot of people are facing uncertain futures and are thoughts are with you.

Much love and God bless x x
