Latest update from Bibi's family: "We're in the process of planning the Barcelona treatment. It's an amazing treatment that uses antibodies to target the neuroblastoma cells so it can then zap them with radiotherapy. (Google 8h9 neuroblastoma treatment for a more scientific explanation). And it can improve survival rates from 10% to 50%. Costs aren't fully confirmed but we're not a huge way off - and we've been overwhelmed with the response so far to #breakarecordforbibi. Every single dance move, drawing, burpee and bear crawl is going to help us get to our target and literally help save her life. So thank you. From all of us x"

Background: Beatriz, or ‘Bibi’, is a gorgeous little cutie pie - just don’t tell her that. She’s also completely fierce. Her favourite things are Paw Patrol, Peperami sausages, picking fluff out from in between her toes and winding up her big sister. 

She keeps her amazing nurses on their toes and terrifies the consultants. “She’s weird, wonderful and amazing - she wants to be the tooth fairy when she grows up. And she is genuinely one of the funniest people we know,” says her mum, Laura.

At two and a half, Beatriz suddenly became very clingy and unhappy. Her parents thought it was just a phase. But she was diagnosed with high-risk neuroblastoma, an aggressive childhood cancer that has a 40-50% chance of long-term survival.

Her family are raising funds for further treatment, either to get their daughter into remission or to try and keep the cancer away if treatment does go to plan. This could cost hundreds of thousands of pounds.
