Ebonie Battles On

Ebonie battles on Ebonie battles on

A LITTLE girl who has an inoperable brain tumour has another battle on her hands.

Ebonie Webb, five, who was diagnosed with the brain tumour when she was just six months old, has now developed diabetes insipidus and has spent a few days recovering in Sheffield Children's Hospital.

It's characterised by excessive thirst but Ebonie doesn't have to take insulin.

Shane Bristow, 42, who runs the Team Ebonie website, said: "She's been in hospital for a few days but she's back at school now.

"It means she's dehydrated. She's okay but they're just keeping a check on it."

Shane said he thought the onset of the diabetes may well be a side effect of the drugs Ebonie has to take to treat her tumour.

Ebonie, of Honeywell Place, Honeywell, has undergone numerous operations and treatments, including radiotherapy, to help reduce the size of the tumour and stop if from growing.

Her parents Mick and Leanne continue to raise money in the hope that she may be able to have treatment abroad.

So far they have raised about £105,000.

I agree. We are always moaning about how hard done by we are and how terrible life is, We should all stand back and take stock or our lives and think how very fortunate we really are. As a parent and grandparent, it doesn't bear thinking about should anything happen to our kids. My heart goes out to little Ebonie and all her family and I hope everything goes well for your future.
