Finally a diagnosis
We were then given the devastating news that Millie had two brain tumours and cancer of the spine. She was immediately transferred to the High Dependency Neurological Unit at Birmingham Children’s Hospital.
Millie then underwent a series of six neuro operations to stabilise her cranial pressure and identify the cancer. Her biopsies were sent to Nottingham University, France and the USA. All three cancer centres returned a verdict of ‘unknown’.
Millie’s cancer is so rare that it has no name and Millie is only the tenth child to be diagnosed in the last 30 years.
