Here is an update from Emma's dad:
So, it has finally come to this.
Today, I did something that was quite surrealistic. Something I thought would be a lot more emotional than it actually was.
I shaved my daughters head.
Not something the average dad would do to a lovely daughter with blonde hair that turns 4 in June, but then again, not the average dad has a daughter with a severe brain tumor.
Emma's radiotherapy is progressing, and our fourth week is at an end tomorrow, but she has been losing more and more hair, and had several bald spots spread out around her head, so it was time.
Her hair will grow out. The more it grows, the more we hope her tumor will shrink.
She is doing well, and is as happy as ever. She is actually looking forward to going to the hospital every morning to be pushed around in her hospital bed. It is her favorite part of the day, and she spreads joy around her among the staff and the nurses.
Emma is our little ray of sunshine, and our only hope is that she will continue to be so and beat this large, evil lump that is growing inside her head.
If you want to support us in this, as we at best can work a few hours per day, and one of us needs to be with Emma full time as things are, and the surrounding life with having to eat and pay rent and other bills unfortunately still go on, feel free to visit (and share) this link: https://www.youcaring.com/micke-askernas-590891
