My daughter Hannah, and what led to her diagnosis.
Today we are sharing Hannah’s story by her Mum, Allison.
Hannah was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia at 11 months old, on 23rd March 2016. She was in and out of hospital during the 9 months of intensive chemotherapy, she is now 9 months into maintenance treatment, thankfully she’s coping quite well and we’re hoping this can continue until end of treatment.
Was it quite easy to get a diagnosis or were there delays?
It was 13 days, between going to the doctors and getting a diagnosis. Her symptoms were bumps on her head and bruising all over, they did thorough scans, blood tests and a biopsy. This was an urgent matter, to rule us out as the cause. Her blood results didn’t show anything sinister, but the biopsy did.
That was very quick. It is not always the case though is it? It sounds like such an awful time…
