Child Interests

Esmé loves pink.
She loves Moana, fairies, the beach, princesses, glitter, stars and hearts.


Esmé was one when she started being sick every morning between 3am and 6am, this went on for weeks. After taking her multiple times to the doctors and A&E she was finally admitted and after an MRI we were told she had a brain tumour. We were transferred to Addenbrookes where she had brain surgery and they successfully removed 100% of the tumour. We had a few complications which meant further surgery for a lumbar drain and then we found out that her tumour was malignant.
Esmé had a tumour called ependymoma II, it is rare and aggressive. She was set a treatment plan for 56 weeks of chemotherapy. Esmé spent her second birthday in hospital. We are halfway through her treatment now and expect to finish around March 2019.
Esmé has two sisters and one brother and it tipped our world upside-down. Aaron (daddy) and Wendy (mummy) have been balancing time in hospital with Esmé and time at home with our other three children, doing our best to manage Esmés low immune system and all spending time together. We have been smiling our way through this difficult time and sticking together as a family. We have been overwhelmed by the love and support of our friends, family and wider community. This support, along with Esmés bravery and high spirits have taken us through this far. We hope the rest of her fight against cancer continues strong until the end of her treatment and then we can try and get our family back to normality and enjoy Esmé being able to do everything she has been missing out on.
