|Hi I'm Ruby. Welcome to my website
I am happy and healthy today, but back in September 2006, my future was quite uncertain. I was 9 years old and diagnosed with a very rare cancer – Undifferentiated Sarcoma of the Liver.
After 7 hours of surgery, my gall bladder and 70% of my liver along with the tumour were removed. Then I had a year of chemotherapy treatment at Starship Children’s Hospital to ensure all the cancer cells were gone. MORE... see ‘My Story’
It was a really tough time for me and my family but we had lots of amazing support from family, friends, school and our parish as well as a number of amazing charities. MORE… see ‘My Causes’
I am very grateful to those who helped us while I was ill, and in an effort to give something back, I started some fundraising of my own. MORE… see ‘Tea Towels’
I encourage you to help me support My Causes if you can.
