Chloe’s diagnosis was completely out of the blue
My daughter Chloe (aged 2) was diagnosed with B Cell Leukaemia (ALL) at the end of September 2018. Chloe’s diagnosis was completely out of the blue; she developed a rash over the course of 24 hours mainly on her feet and stomach so I thought it would be best to get it looked at by our GP.
Expecting the GP to say it was viral, my heart started racing when she requested we attend the Bristol Children’s hospital that evening. Within two hours the blood work was done and the A&E consultant advised that myself and my husband prepare ourselves as the chances of leukaemia were extremely high. Over the course of the weekend various tests were done with confirmation on the 24th September 2018 that Chloe had ALL. For days I woke up thinking it was just a terrible nightmare then, as the days went by, it became more real and I kept thinking “Why me, why us and why our little girl”!
