A week ago today we had our first group meeting for Sophie’s campaign, and it’s incredible how far we’ve come in just seven days.
Thank you to everyone who’s reading this blog and taking the time to donate on the Just Giving site. Your comments on Just Giving are incredibly touching – we’re reading them all and only wish we could contact each of you individually to thank you for your kind words and support.
Facebook and Twitter are working well to spread the message, we’ve managed to get several retweets from kind celebrities – if you’d like to see what’s going on on Twitter, search for #HelpSophie and @SophiesStory and you can see who’s talking about our appeal.
Also, our fantastic friends and family are organising lots of events so check out the new calendar on the Events tab of the site to see the details. We hope to add new events throughout this week.
Sophie is now into day 4 of her 10th chemo cycle and she is coping well. This chemo makes her sick and gives her diarrhoea but we’ve so far been able to manage this with various medicines. One of these medicines is a steroid and it has some unfortunate side effects and makes her hyper, aggressive and permanently hungry but we can deal with all of this as long as she isn’t being sick. We’re still waiting for the results of the CT scan and the longer we have to wait the more we start to worry about whether the cancer has spread or grown. We’ve already seen that Sophie’s cancer is very aggressive and can spread rapidly so CT scans are incredibly nerve racking. We’re hoping though to hear some positive news early this week.
Thanks again for your interest and support, this campaign means everything to us.
