A Cure For FreyjaAnother auction of Moto GP memorabilia
Floyd Primmer's youngest son Patrick Primmer (a VVCMCC club member) and his wife Justine, are organising another auction of Motor GP memorabilia and merchandise from MotoGP riders and teams, to assist in finding a cure for young Canberra girl Freyja Christiansen.https://www.charitystars.com/foundation/a-cure-for-freyja
In January 2016, Freyja was diagnosed with a rare adult cancer called, Clear Cell Sarcoma. She has it in her neck and abdomen. Initially 37 doctors refused to operate, fearing catastrophic damage to critical structures in her neck. Then a robotic surgical team in Melbourne agreed to tackle her tumours and this worked to some degree. She's been through rounds and rounds of immunotherapy and 28 sessions of pencil beam radiotherapy.
Freyja is defying the odds, however she's endured 18 months of painful, invasive procedures and treatments in her battle against it. Yet still she smiles. Still she puts up with the relentless tubes, injections, operations, scans and medicines. Still she puts up with the hideous side effects like Mucositis which inflames her digestive tract and makes swallowing painful and impossible so that she must be fed by tube. Still she puts up with frequent cross-country travel to the medical teams that are her only hope.
Health services cover some things, but there are many things they don't. Cancer is expensive! Her Mum Liz is on her own and can't work while caring for Freyja full time.
