Update August 2018
Maisie is now nine years old and about to start Year 5 at school. She loves art, dancing, swimming and hanging out with Thomas, her dog. She adores all animals and wants to be a vet when she’s older. Maisie’s next check-up is approaching. This will be her first appointment in the Long Term Follow Up clinic for children five years post treatment until adulthood. As the name suggests, they are looking out for any long term side effects of the chemotherapy (over two years of treatment for acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL).
Maisie’s doing really well but still complains of weak and painful legs. She’s attending physiotherapy sessions and her biggest wish is to be able to run as fast as her friends. She’ll get there!
