Friday April 20th

Well everyone chemo went well today. Ellie had recieved healing turtles from Max's Love Project to give out to other sick children in Our Ladys Hospital. She gave two out today, one to a 14 year old boy named Aaron who has Leukemia. She gave the other to a five year old boy named Ben who also has Leukemia. Ben was so happy with his turtle, and Ellie was delighted to give it to him.

We dont want anymore weight loss this week!!!1 If anyone out there has any suggestions for foods to try while on chemo i would be grateful for your advice.

New hairdo!!

Ellie got her hair cut into a bob today. Her hair falling out was annoying her so much, so she asked me to take her to have it cut. I was so upset to cut it but when I saw how happy Ellie was then I was happy too. She's so brave and I love her strength and positivity.

Cards for Ellie

This is my 8 year old daughter Ellie . We live in Ireland and she has NF1. We do not know anyone else in Ireland who has Neurofibromatosis . She made her 1st Holy Communion early, without her class, because on March 19th she went into the hospital to have a port ( IV access ) placed in her wee chest and she will spend the next 18 - 24 months getting chemo treatments to try to stop the growth of the brain tumor on her optic nerves ( optic glioma ) and  save her vision . 

I am asking you to please keep her in your prayers . Ellie would LOVE to get cards.   So we are asking everyone to send her cards to keep her spirits up. 
Ellie is fanatical about Jedward and it would make all her dreams come true if she got a card from them. So if you know Jedward or someone close to them, please pass on.

Postal address is as follows.

Ellie Dixon
97 Priory Lodge
Co. Kildare

Thank you
