Our world fell apart
Aimee was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukaemia in January 2016 after having bruises and uncontrollable bleeding to her gums – she’d lost teeth in the previous months. We were absolutely devastated when Aimee was diagnosed with AML. Our world fell apart.
Aimee was taken to our local hospital after a rash appeared on her legs. The next morning we were a patient and family of Ward 84 in Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital (RMCH).
Aimee underwent a gruelling course of chemotherapy, blood and platelet transfusions as well as antibiotics when she picked up infections. After six months Aimee achieved remission.
