Sanya Ahmed Inayah is my 3 year old niece. She has one older brother (Rayyan) who is 7 years old. They are from Manchester as my sister and brother inlaw live there. Manchester is one of my favourite cities in the UK and I absolutely adore spending time with the kids on my visit there. Inayah is best described as a little madam and daddy’s girl, not to mention she is such a fearless child. She is so intelligent and I know when she grows up she will make us all proud as we want her to be a doctor hopefully.

On 31st October my precious niece was diagnosed with Burkitt Leukaemia also known as Burkitt lymphoma. This is a very aggressive type of cancer which usually grow from the B lymphocytes (white blood cells that fight infection). Strong chemotherapy is used to treat this and also intrathecal chemotherapy is given to treat the central nerve system.

Inayah had no obvious symptoms of cancer, which is why it was such a such for me and my family when we were told this sad news. We were explained that she will have 6 lots of chemotherapy to be cured and hopefully she will be free from cancer.

Inayah is currently fighting for her life in paediatric intensive care. My niece caught a horrible reaction to her chemotherapy which caused her to be in a critical state.

This is why where I ask for everyone’s kind thoughts, prayers and any kind of donation for the charity skydive! I know my niece would be so excited to watch her favourite aunty jump out of a plane! Sanya Ahmed
