A Little Sutton youngster whose brave cancer battle has touched the hearts of many has issued a special thank you to her supporters.
Five-year-old Olivia May Phillips was diagnosed with hepatoblastoma –a rare tumour that originates in the liver and has spread to her lungs – in October last year.
More than £3,000 was raised towards a campaign to support Olivia and parents Jon Phillips and Louise Ashcroft while they care for her at an evening with Robbie Williams tribute act JK at the Mercure Chester North Woodhey House Hotel on Saturday (April 16).
Family friend Jo Foster, who organised the event, wishes to thank everyone who supported the event, including the Mercure Chester North Woodhey House Hotel, support act Micky Armo, florist Carol Annes, Simply Hitched, Crystal Logic Photography and those who donated prizes for the raffle.
Olivia continues to have chemotherapy.
“Olivia’s mum Louise and dad Jon are truly thankful for all the love shown towards Olivia.
“The support received from so many brings comfort and strength to the family through this difficult journey.”
A car wash fundraiser has been organised at the Sir Robert pub in Ellesmere Port on Monday, May 2, from 1pm until 5pm.
There will be a minimum donation of £3 per car and proceeds will be split equally with another campaign to support the family of Lacey-Mae Fletcher, from Ellesmere Port, who is also fighting cancer.
