Always remembering


Caring, funny and beautiful Gaby had a great sense of humour and loved to read. Gaby passed away when she was 14 years old.

Gaby's story 

Gaby was the biggest fan of Harry Potter and Dr Who.

Gaby’s mum, Vicki, first noticed there was something wrong when Gaby’s energy levels seemed to dwindle during the summer holidays. During a holiday with her dad, Gaby complained of back pain, so Vicki took her to the local doctors. 

She had blood tests and just two days later Vicki received a phone call asking her to take Gaby to hospital as her blood tests revealed something was amiss. Gaby’s parents were told that she had a mass in her abdomen, and it was confirmed as stage 4 high-risk neuroblastoma. Gaby was 10 years old.  

Gaby underwent frontline treatment in the UK but after a few months, there was still signs of the disease in her bone marrow. She accessed the BEACON trial in April 2014 due to the progression of her neuroblastoma but struggled with low platelet counts. 

Sadly, scans in May 2016 showed disease progression and a new tumour in the brain.  

Gaby passed away on 12th March 2017. 

Gaby’s favourite quote from Harry Potter was so meaningful to her family – she always tried to focus on the positives, despite everything.  

"Happiness can be found in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light."
