Our Angel Girl Sydney

Sydney is a very special 12 year old girl who loves music, hanging out with her friends, playing with her two Yorkies, and cooking. She was diagnosed with AML (Acute Myeloid Leukemia) on July 17, 2011. AML is more of an adult Leukemia. Less than 10% of children get this type of Leukemia. Sydney also has the FLT-3 gene mutation which is high risk. she will need a bone marrow transplant to save her life. Her battle with cancer will be a long one. She contracted Aspergillus in November 2011 which required lung surgery to remove her upper right lobe in January 2012. With a miracle recovery, she was finally in remission on Feb.3. Very excited about getting to transplant however, we encountered another problem. Sydney began having seizures and in March 2012 her cancer came back 68%. We were heartbroken we couldn't get her to transplant which means more chemo. She is already on Sorafenib and getting ready to start Azacitidine the middle of May. New Chemo did not work. Amplatz Childrens Hospital took a chance on her and we flew to Minnasota where we lived for 6 weeks, but unfortunately, with no success.

Sydney became an Angel of God Sept. 25, 2012. Her wish was to help Children's Cancer Research find a cure so that more families will be spared this fight in the future! Thank you for your support and prayers. Her motto: ~AWARENESS MAKES A CURE POSSIBLE~ Sydney Davies 9-17-99 ~ 9-25-12

The Champions for Childhood Cancer Research program is a tool for families to use when friends, family members and coworkers ask “what can we do to help?” It’s a place for families to celebrate and honor the milestones of children who survive their cancer battles, as well as a place to remember those special children who did not survive.

Children’s Cancer Research Fund knows that a family that experiences the diagnosis of cancer or a genetic disease related to cancer needs a lot of support throughout the journey. The one thing they want the most though is a cure for their child and for any child whose family hears that devastating and frightening diagnosis.

Children’s Cancer Research Fund shares that focused goal — to eradicate childhood cancer. We are a national non-profit investing in a leader in the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure of childhood cancer, the University of Minnesota Masonic Cancer Center. Together, we are accelerating the pace of discoveries — from research lab to patient care — that are revolutionizing the way childhood cancer is treated worldwide. Children’s Cancer Research Fund also educates the public about childhood cancer and supports quality-of-life programs for pediatric cancer patients and their families as they undergo their cancer treatment.
