In July 2014, 2-year-old Eve McGonigle was diagnosed with an extremely rare and life-threatening brain tumour called Ependymoma. After weeks of mis-diagnosis, Eve was extremely ill, struggling to walk, talk or even eat. The life was sucked out of her and it was agonising to see the once mischevious and adorable toddler struggling to survive. Eve's condition drastically deteriorated and after a visit to the Borders General Hospital was rushed to Edinburgh's Sick Kids for emergency treatment after a brain scan determined the unthinkable. This was truly devastating and soul destroying for Eve's family who could only rally around and pray for a miracle, whilst Eve lay almost unrecognisable in a ward bursting with other young children fighting for their lives. 

Upon arriving at the hospital, Eve was taken in and cared for by the magical staff and nurses of Ward 7. The procedures and life-saving treatment that Eve required were terrifying for both Eve and her family, however the miraculous nurses and medical staff were constantly on hand 24 hours a day to help with their calming and loving nature, somehow helping to make the six week stint in a stark hospital bed bearable. These people dedicate their lives to ensure the young children that enter the ward have the very best chance of making it out in full health, so we want to give something back.

EVEolution has been set up to help the staff and patients of Ward 7 to improve the facilities on the ward to allow children fighting this deadly disease and their families find some sort of comfort and solace throughout this stressful time.

If you would like to help us make a difference we would be forever grateful knowing that with your generous support we have made a difference to help future children like Eve and their families having to battle through this terrifying experience. When you are smacked in the face with a heartbreaking matter such as Eve's we know it would make a difference to find a little more comfort in an alien environment. 

We will keep you up to date with projects on our twitter and Facebook page. 

Thank you, thank you, thank you.
