I am hoping to raise awareness for a little girl of 4 years old who has brain stem cancer. There is no treatment available in the UK so the family are in America for Billie to begin some experimental therapy there. Billie's mother has breast cancer so this is a second devastating blow for them. It is terrible to have a sick grandchild. I was so moved by this story in the media I wondered if other grandparents would like to help. Please look at htttp://
