Katy's Story

Read Katy’s story about her battle with a Diffuse Pontine Glioma. See how our lives changed from before diagnosis up until we lost her on January 19th 2012 after a very brave 3 month battle. It was sudden, it was frightening and we couldn’t do anything to help her.

We were just a normal family that went on holidays and worked hard. We adore each other and spent quality family days together all the time. Katy was popular among her friends and head girl at school. Charley looked up to her big sister, they were inseparable - but then our lives changed forever.

Please read Katy’s story before diagnosis.
