£1,000 will see Daisy en­joy sa­fari park treat

The Oban Times - - News -

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.’
