The Story

Dear friends,

We are an international family that now lives in Malmö, Sweden - mum Ikko is Japanese, dad Kenneth is Swedish and our dear daughter Nikki was born in New Zealand! Until April last year we lived in Hastings, UK, where Nikki went to school and still has some very good friends.

Nikki had been healthy and well all her life, but on July 11 2016 she fell ill three days before her 14th birthday and we got one of the most devastating blows any parent can get - "your daughter has a severe brain tumour that cannot be operated and we (the Swedish healthcare) do not have the means to cure her"...
Since that day, our lives have been in chaos with an unbearable rollercoaster of emotions - feeling bad both physically and psychologically!

Nikki is a sweet, quiet and innocent teenage girl that 'would not hurt a fly', she lets everybody pass through a door, before she would go herself. However, she has proven to be a fighter, when facing a lot of hardship and although her Swedish doctors have given up all hope (already in Feb!), she and we have not!!

There are promising treatments in London and Mexico, where the doctors are devoted and specialists in this terrible dipg disease. Although it is the toughest battle, there are more and more success stories of kids reaching a "no evidence of disease" state. We so dearly want Nikki to get there too!!

Unfortunately, the costs are more than a normal person/ family can afford with treatment costs alone above £200'000, which is why we kindly ask for any donation, big or small, all donated funds + more will be spent on Nikki and her treatments and for that we are forever grateful!!!

I have taught Nikki a lot of fun stuff - how to ski, bicycle, swim etc, and I have promised to teach her driving (although my driving sometimes makes both her and her mum carsick) and most of all to take her "down under" - to beautiful N.Z. where she came to the world as the most beautiful baby! We/I need your help in order to fulfil these promises and to give Nikki the treatment she needs and deserves.

Please help us save Nikki and please share this and her facebook group; Nikki's braintumour fight to as many as you can.
Take good care of each other and make the best out of every day!
Lots of Love
Ken, Ikko & Nikki

Dear all lovely friends and kind people that is supporting Nikki & us!!
I am sorry for not taking the time to update here - one of many things I have done wrong...
Unfortunately, Nikki is in a very bad condition and I/we fear that she will not be able to "hang on" much longer...
"Hang on" is what she says most of the time now when we come with food, drink or supplements. She is constantly tired and does not even have energy left to eat or drink - so we are heartbreakingly seeing her fade away...
30th of May was the last time we saw her oncologist! - who then said goodbye to Nikki a second time (1st in February)!! We have since been keeping her at home with the help of a palliative team (doctors & nurses - with mainly painkilling knowledge).
During this time we have cared for her 24/7 and searched, ordered and tried many treatments, supplements etc, but without the help from a professional, it's obviously impossible to fight this monster disease.
As it might be too late and/or impossible for us to take Nikki to an alternative treatment clinic here or abroad, we do not feel comfortable about asking for any more donations.
We are forever grateful to everyone that has helped us and I will get back to you with more details later.
Have to stop now - because she's in pain and need attention...
