Please consider helping our caring, funny, loveable and precious niece and daughter fight leukaemia!

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.

Naomi Senior's involvement (page creator)

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.

Lily is a trooper!   26 March 2020

Posted by: Naomi Senior

Lily has been a trooper the past few weeks, we are super proud of her. Unfortunately she had a bad reaction to one of the chemo drugs which resulted in her contracting pancreatitis and in hospital for four nights, she was in a lot of pain and she needed morphine for relief. On the 6th April Lily will be having a bone marrow aspiration to test if the leukaemia has gone into remission. If you are a person of faith, please prayer for a positive outcome for this.

Thank you so much to everyone who has given financially and also to those people who have given meals, which have been such a blessing and toys to Lily. It is truly appreciated and made an extremely trying time more bearable. Much love from myself and my family. I hope you are all keeping safe in these uncertain times <3
