After falling over at nursery and hitting her chin, Jessica’s pupils changed and we were told it was Horner’s Syndrome. Through that we discovered her tumour. Jessica was later diagnosed at three years old with a localised neuroblastoma.
Jess relapsed for the first time in December 2013 when she was six years old; she complained of a pain in her neck and I found the lump. This has happened each time she has relapsed. She commenced frontline treatment in February 2014, chemotherapy, surgery, radiotherapy and retinoic acid. This treatment finished in December 2014.
Jess relapsed for the second time in February 2015 followed by surgery, high dose of chemotherapy, radiotherapy and retinoic acid. Unfortunately Jess was denied immunotherapy as she didn’t meet the criteria.
