THE parents of a six-year-old girl are pleading with the public to help save her life.
On May 13 this year, Andy and Stacey Bark were told their daughter, Florence, had a rare form of cancer, shattering their world.
Doctors originally dismissed her symptoms as a chest infection or tonsillitis, her parents claim.
But Florence was in fact harbouring a rare form of leukaemia, called acute myeloid leukaemia.
It’s diagnosed in around 3,000 people in the UK each year, including 70 or so children.
Florence is only one of 10 to have her rare genetic form of cancer, which makes her even more at risk.
Her treatment options are incredibly limited, and the Bark family, from Corby, Northamptonshire, are asking the public to help secure Florence’s future.
