Cherri’s treatment and side effects
She was on so much medication, including chemotherapy and yet she actually dealt with it all so much better than Donna and I. When her hair fell out I remember her turning to me and saying ‘Daddy I know my hair will grow back, when yours falls out it won’t.’ Well, what could I say to that!
Cherri was on chemotherapy medication for over two years.
With the constant hospital visits and stays back in hospital when she caught infections, she missed out on so much that should have been hers to enjoy. She started school during her treatment – a massive milestone for any little girl – but even harder for Cherri as she had never had the chance to go to pre-school and make friends.
