Support Children with Cancer 

Ruby was just seven months old when she was first diagnosed with a rare form of cancer.


Ruby’s parents, Emma and Joel, first suspected something was wrong when they noticed that Ruby had become extremely sleepy and pale.

After taking her to Princess Margaret Hospital for a check-up and blood tests, Ruby was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukaemia.

Ruby has been a patient at PMH on and off since that fateful day. 

Now three years old, she will continue to battle her condition at Perth Children's Hospital.

Ruby remains a ray of sunshine, smiling even when she’s not feeling well and the family is growing more and more positive each day.
