£1,000 will see Daisy enjoy safari park treat
MORE than £1,000 has been raised for a Fort William toddler with a rare form of cancer.
Daisy Thomson was diagnosed with an atypical teratoid rhabdoid tumour last March when she was just nine months old.
A whopping £40,000 has been raised for Daisy during the course of her illness by friends, family and Lochaber business.
In December, Daisy was given the all clear but her family was recently given the heartbreaking news that her cancer had returned and sadly, it looks to be terminal.
Close family friend Keira Wright has been busy fundraising for Daisy and held a successful raffle in Sunny’s Bar, Fort William, on Sunday May 21. Forty people attended, with £1,108 raised.
Keria told the Lochaber Times: ‘Her parents, Leah and Garry, have said they are going to take Daisy to Blair Drummond Safari Park as she really likes animals.’
