Eva was diagnosed with Wilms tumour, a type of kidney cancer that mainly affects children, in March 2016. She underwent an operation to remove the tumour and her right kidney, and following surgery, Eva spent several weeks in hospital undergoing chemotherapy. Thankfully Eva’s treatment was successful, and she is now in remission.
During their time in hospital, Eva and her mum Jill made sure they treasured every moment together and focused on making the best out of a bad situation. They would paint their nails, have late night sweet snacks, and watch films together.
