Evie’s Hope – PLEASE SUPPORT!!

A lot of you that have followed me from the beginning and throughout my pregnancy would have heard me mention a numerous amount of time on my blog & in vlogs my ‘Facebook April Due Date Group’.
We are a bunch of crazy ass mama’s who love each other dearly … you might as well say we are a family!
A pretty HUGH family of nearly 150 women from all around the world and all walks of life.

We have been there for each other through highs and lows & I love every single one of these ladies for that.
It breaks my heart to tell you guys one of the mama’s & baby need our help, support & preys.

Little Evangeline Collette Johnson, daughter to Lindsey Johnson was born March 18th 2012 at 8:16 only 8 days after Hayden She was rushed off the NICU because she wasn’t crying & had difficultly breathing so they wanted to monitor her after about 2 hours it was resolved & she was in her mothers loving arms.

I think its safe to say that when you have a newborn you look out for everything tiny thing and start to worry. I think we went to the GP about 4 time with Hayden asking about different things. One of them him crossing of the eyes. The GP informed us that it was normal and will correct itself … which it did.

Unfortunaly at 3 months Lindsey noticed that baby Evie’s eyes were starting to cross again. So she thought next appointment get it checkout.
The Drs wasn’t to happy when checking her eyes & she got to see a specialist as it could be something as simple as a lazy eye or as serious as a tumor.

To Lindsey’s surprise baby Evie was had a malignant tumor in her right eye and that she was blind on that side. Baby Evie has a form of Cancer called ‘bilateral retinoblastoma’

Retinoblastoma (Rb) is a rapidly developing cancer that develops in the cells of retina, the light-detecting tissue of the eye.[1] In the developed world, Rb has one of the best cure rates of all childhood cancers (95-98%), with more than nine out of every ten sufferers surviving into adulthood. (Taken from wikipedia)
The most common sign of retinoblastoma
A White glow in the pupil of the eye.

I have never heard of cancer of the eye so I was in so much shock when she told us… My heart broke for her and her family, as I’m sure we all did in our group.
A few of the ladies came together to try and organise support & Prays website for Baby Evie & her family.

Please take the time to visit, show support and give prayers. Read their story & Share their story.
Lindey needs our help & support … even if its a few kind words! A little goes a long way!
