Friend Dana Andrews wrote on the fundraising page: “Darcie was recently diagnosed with B-cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia. She is only three years old, and while it is treatable, she and her family now face a very challenging two years of treatment.


“Obviously this will have a huge impact on family life, massively affecting Joanna and Andy’s work and domestic situations for the foreseeable future.”
