A FUNDRAISING campaign is gaining momentum to help Sydney’s Nagel family relocate to America to provide the best chance of survival for adorable four-year-old, Libby, who has a rare form of cancer.

Libby, loved to bits by her parents, three older brothers, extended family and many friends for her sweet nature and warm heart, has braved several rounds of chemotherapy, radiotherapy and surgery since being diagnosed with stage four neuroblastoma in August 2015.

Only about 40 children worldwide are diagnosed with this form of cancer every year.

A recent routine scan revealed a tumour in the front part of Libby’s brain.

Relocating overseas to seek the best treatment will give Libby the best chance of survival, but the financial burden for the family is enormous, so any assistance will make a difference.

To make a donation, visit www.chuffed.org and type Nagel in the search box, or phone Tova Moss on 0422 635 204 for more information.
