What An Amazing Family #DreamBigForFreya
Freya is a 5-year-old little girl whose world has been turned upside down by a life changing diagnosis.
Freya was suffering from abdominal migraines and behavioral changes, due to her age but her parents knew something wasn’t right. A visit to A&E at the RVI in Newcastle gave them the devastating news they never thought they would receive.
Freya was diagnosed with DIPG (Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma), an aggressive inoperable brain tumor. DIPG has a 0% survival rate, only 10% of children survive 2 years following their diagnosis and less than 1% survive for 5 years, the average survival is 9 months from diagnosis.
Freya's parents Mark & Victoria have set up a A Go Fund Me page to support the family during this difficult time but also to raise awareness of DIPG.
