One of my best friend's little sister has been diagnosed with cancer. She is 11 months old. Sorry I can't put her name up here. Please follow the studio, and most importantly, hope.

My friend's sister is now having medicine all the time on a drip to make her better. She has had an operation and is still far from recovery but there is talk of her coming home soon, if only for a brief visit. My friend has been very sad but now that her sister has such a better chance of survival she has cheered up considerably. Her and her little sisters were allowed their first visit to her a couple of weeks ago and she has showed me photos. Keep hoping!

Sad news arrived on Thursday. Unfortunately, as well as her sister, my friend's mum has been diagnosed with cancer too. Neither of them has enough white blood cells, and they will both have to undergo operation. This is a time when we will have to hope more than ever, as their lives are more in danger now than they have been at any time so far. None of my friend's six siblings are allowed to come into contact with ill people in case of contaminating their mother or sister. Please, please hope. Also, if you have not already, please sign the card at https://scratch.mit.edu/projects/52735738/ . Please hope at this time especially, it is really needed!

Please keep hoping. My friend's family are suffering awful problems on top of this awful happening. Last week, they suffered harassment and a break in at their house. After an x-ray and a second operation, she is found also to have problems with her skull. Doctors are puzzled as she does not have leukemia, the common "children's" cancer, but a far less common adult's cancer. Another thing you can do is help cut down the root of her cancer, smoking. If you know someone who smokes, tactfully offer to help them to stop or many more lives like hers could be lost. Please keep hoping through this time of need, as an innocent young life is at stake!

Sorry I was not on scratch for a while everyone. Again big thanks from everyone. Good news! My friend's sister is home, and though she is still on medicine and must go to the hospital regularly, she is believed to probably be over the worst of her illness. Keep checking for updates. Also, if you have any children's stories, fun animations, simple games or anything else suitable for small children please add them to the studio as this is helpful for young children and babies and others in the world like her who are not so fortunate as to have so many people caring for them. Thankyou so much.

More good news! My friend's sister has been home for quite a while now and is getting on well. She is still on medicine but we are hoping she will be almost completely better soon. When this happens we will have an official celebratory project for the whole studio. Keep hoping for the best!

Happy new year everyone! REALLY GREAT NEWS has arrived, and it makes me so happy I cannot tell you. My friend's little sister has been diagnosed to now be totally free of cancer! She still needs medicine and a special diet because she is weak, but it is pretty certain that she is not ill any more and soon will be completely better. This is brilliant news and I hope you are as happy as I am. Obviously my friend and her family are very happy and your continued hope and support through the months has been invaluable. There will no doubt be more updates so do not lose sight of this studio and cause! Right now is a school holiday for me so when I get back to school I will check with my friend, and when her sister is completely better we will have a big celebratory project for the whole studio and all its valued supporters.

So sorry I've been off for so long guys! In the time I've been away, a whole LOAD of stuff has happened! My friend's little sister is officially getting a lot better and we hope that soon- yay!- she will be completely better. Also, as my friend reminded me seven times today to say in this post, she and her little sister now have an even littler baby brother! Very exciting stuff. Be happy guys, and don't forget to keep checking the studio if it comes up in your inbox!
