Helping Annabelle Potts

Helping Annabelle Potts

Annabelle Potts is a bubbly, energetic four year old girl. She loves Disney princesses and being a big sister to her little brother William. Annabelle is very kind and sharing and lives to make others happy.

In December 2016, at the age of three, Annabelle was diagnosed with Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG), a highly aggressive and difficult to treat brain tumour within the brainstem. At diagnosis, her prognosis was three years at best, and as little as two months. Children diagnosed with DIPG, on average, live for only 9 months.

To give Annabelle as much time as possible, she has undergone 27 radiotherapy treatments over five weeks, but the radiotherapy will only buy Annabelle a little time at best. Without other treatments Annabelle will lose the ability to breath, see and hear and lose the use of her limbs, before choking to death. Annabelle will be fully cognisant and completely aware of what is happening around her.

Brain cancer kills more children than any other disease in Australia and DIPG is the most dangerous and least understood. DIPG takes 15-20 Australian children each year, devastating their families, friends and the community.

However, there is currently no further treatment beyond radiotherapy and there is very little government funding for research into this devastating disease.

Since Annabelle's diagnosis late last year, Annabelle's father has only been able to work four months and her mother has only been able to return only been able to return to work part time since late September. Adam and Kathie have exhausted all of annual and personal leave which doesn't leave much when Annabelle is unwell or has medical appointments. Additionally they have incurred substantial medical expenses.

Please help us to help them and Annabelle.

Please note that all donations received will be used to support Annabelle's family with her treatment and related costs incurred  within Australia.
