We noticed spots and bruising all over her body
On the 4th May 2020, Isla-Mae was rushed to hospital after a few weeks of high temperatures and swollen tonsils. In the previous weeks we had the ambulance service out and online consultations with the GP and everyone said she was fine and it was a case of tonsillitis.
But at the beginning of May, Isla-Mae got worse and we noticed spots and bruising all over her body. We rushed her to hospital and after seven hours of tests, the doctors came back to us with the worst news we’ve ever heard – she had leukaemia.
