Robyn Smyth is a 10-year-old girl from Dublin, Ireland who suffers from neuroblastoma and who has battled childhood cancer since the age of three, has just a 5% chance of survival. Although Robyn was declared disease-free for the first time in early 2009, she relapsed less than two years ago when a tumour broke through her jaw bone and the cancer quickly spread to her spine, legs, and pelvis.
Since then Robyn has undergone eight rounds of chemotherapy, along with radiation treatment, and immunotherapy at Crumlin Children’s Hospital. But now her family, face a colossal challenge as they have no option but to take Robyn to America for potential life saving treatment because her treatment finished in Ireland and there are no further treatment options available in Europe.
The only option for Robyn is to partake in clinical trials only available in America. These offer Robyn the best chance of survival. Robyn’s family are doing everything in their power to make travelling to America for treatment a reality but they need your help to save Robyn’s Life.
