Yesterday was a momentous day. We found out that Eloise’s latest MRI scan was all clear and Eloise got to ring the bell at the Royal Marsden to signal the end of all her active cancer treatment. Quite simply, this is a stunning statement and wonderful news. We are so grateful and indebted to so many.
Statistically and when we first met with the Oncologists it was unlikely that Eloise would get to celebrate another Christmas. 18 months on and after countless miracles, including successful highly complex brain surgery, access to cutting-edge radiotherapy and pioneering chemotherapy protocols Eloise is doing well and there is no evidence of cancer in her. Incredible.
Whilst Eloise continues to have medical challenges to conquer, today is a day to celebrate. A day to be thankful to God. A day to celebrate Eloise and all she has overcome.
Thank you for all your prayers, love and support. We wouldn’t be where we are without it, we are convinced of that and are forever grateful.
We will provide further updates about “what next” in due course but for now, we hope you enjoy watching Eloise ringing the bell to mark the end of her treatment.
(Note: The Royal Marsden doesn’t allow family into the hospital, so Eloise rang the bell twice. Once on the ward with some of the nurses, dieticians, healthcare assistants and Drs who treated Eloise and then again in the Maggies Centre, outside the hospital, where family could join to celebrate with Eloise)
