Elowen Boston

Elowen Boston

On the 5th of May, in the midst of COVID-19 lockdowns, William and Bronwyn Boston received the life-changing news that my granddaughter eight-month-old Elowen had a rare form of blood cancer - Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML). In August Elowen has started her third round of chemotherapy. She has entered the consolidation stage of her treatment and although the dose volumes have been significantly increased, her treatment blocks are shorter (only 5 days with 5-6 weeks recovery afterwards). Her little body is tired but she is still so strong and plays, cuddles and laughs every day. Thanks to everyone who donates to research for kids cancer or Elowen’s Gofundme page.

My Story

25 Aug 2020

In August I started riding 1000km for Elowen and have nearly completed this. Let’s go all the way so This October, I am taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids' cancer!

Because right now, cancer is the largest single killer of children from disease in Australia – over 600 children are diagnosed with cancer every year and sadly, 3 die every week.

Kids should be living life, not fighting for it.

And so I am riding and raising funds to support the Children's Medical Research Institute to continue their work into the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and finding a cure for childhood cancer.

Please support my challenge by making a donation through my fundraising page to give these kids the brighter futures they deserve.

Together, we can save little lives.

Thanks for your support.

    The last 1-3 weeks have been rollercoaster ride for Elowen in the Queensland's Children's Hospital. Finishing her last chemo, learning to stand, having 2 operations on her central line and her 1st birthday. This is one Brave Little Chicken and I'm going to do by best to ride 1200km supporting children's cancer research in October. Love you chicken and keep fighting.
