Devastatingly, an MRI scan revealed the rare tumour behind her eye and doctors drew up an 84-week treatment plan. Her father Andy, 39, explains: “Up until her diagnosis, Pixie had always been completely fit and healthy, a really happy young girl so we were stunned when we were told she had a brain tumour.”To support Andy in his fundraising, please visit: www.justgiving.com/fundraising/andy-sykes-aidenseek She was given an eye patch to try, but when it didn't work the school girl was referred to RMCH for an emergency eye appointment and MRI scan.

The brand of product you buy can vary in importance, from person to person. Some people will of course be much more particular about the brands they will use. Whilst others aren’t interested in the brand and are more interested in the overall quality or price of the product itself. Thankfully Pixie Belles is a brand that many customers have grown to love over the years and is very popular for items in the Playsets and figures category. In December 2018, after 21 weeks of chemotherapy, she had an adverse reaction to the drugs, and had to start all over again from week one, with different medication. It meant that PixieBelle, from Ashton-under-Lyne, had to endure a total of 111 sessions of treatment at Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital. Astonished doctors with her determination after battling her way through more than three years of chemotherapy for a rare brain tumour.Sadly, just three months later a scan showed signs that the tumour had regrown. Andy explains: “It was unexpected and we were stunned but it was something we had been warned by doctors could happen. However, we were delighted to get PixieBelle onto an experimental new medical trial pretty much straight away to target the tumour directly.” By chance, Andy had already signed up to take on the Manchester Half Marathon on 14th October to fundraise for Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital Charity, before his daughter was admitted under its care. Since his daughter’s diagnosis, Andy is determined to fundraise for the hospital’s recently launched iMRI Scanner Appeal, to build a new intra-operative MRI (iMRI) scanning suite that will revolutionise brain surgery at Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital. Andy added: “We initially thought it was just a case of weak eye muscle which was affecting Pixie’s eye; never for one second did we think it could be a brain tumour. Pixie-Belle’s parents, Andy and Katie, took their daughter for an eye test in February this year after noticing that her right eye was looking slightly to one side. After trialling an eye-patch to no success, Pixie-Belle was referred to Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital for an emergency eye appointment and MRI scan. She has been so incredibly brave and has inspired family, friends and people from all around her community to fundraise for the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital Charity. In our area, everyone knows PixieBelle, she is a shining light.”

We’ve got a long road ahead of us with Pixie-Belle’s treatment, but getting involved in the charity has given me something to focus on.”

If the brand you buy is important to you, our best advice is to spend some time writing up your own list of ideal brands. That way when you come to the point where you’re comparing product options you can filter to only show the products from brands in your list. Just before we get into the detail of analysing the price of this product, we want to briefly highlight the importance of setting yourself a budget before you spend too much time shopping around for a suitable product. It’s all too often that we get carried away when shopping and find ourselves buying a fantastic product, but probably actually overdelivers on what we need and therefore costs a lot more than we should have spent. So spend a bit of time looking around at the sort of price you can expect to pay for products in the Playsets and figures category and use that alongside your own financial situation to set yourself a budget. Viv Williamson, Events Manager at Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital Charity commented: “We can’t thank Andy enough for everything he is doing to support our charity, especially at such a challenging time for his family. He’s already raised an incredible amount from the half marathon which will make a valuable contribution towards our iMRI Scanner Appeal. We wish Pixie-Belle all the best with her recovery and look forward to seeing Andy at the half marathon, and cheering him along on the day!”

Young Pixie-Belle is currently on week 12 of an 84 week course of chemotherapy to shrink the tumour. Now aged nine, the youngster is just one of 60 people worldwide benefiting from the treatment, which unlike chemotherapy, is taken in tablet form. Mum Katie says: “There are far fewer side effects, and PixieBelle is able to pretty much carry on life on as normal. She loves to dance and perform and everything she has had to go through she has just embraced and pushed through. The family of five-year-old Pixie-Belle Sykes, from Ashton-under-lyne, are fundraising for Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital where Pixie-Belle is undergoing treatment for a rare type of brain tumour called Pilocytic Astrocytoma.
