Dainere Monique Anthoney was born on the 8th February 1998 a happy, healthy baby. Then her world was turned upside down in 2009 when she was diagnosed with High Risk Medulloblastoma, she endured a ten hour surgery, high dose radiation and high dose chemotherapy with autogluous stem cell transplants. Then in February 2012, she suffered an inoperable and incurable recurrence of the disease in her spine, with palliative care being the only treatment available and tragically on 24th June 2013 she had her life stolen by this horrific disease.
Dainere was the most courageous, selfless and inspiring young person you could ever meet, she worked passionately and tirelessly during her short life to raise awareness and funds for paediatric brain tumours. Her greatest wish in life was that no children in the future would have to suffer as she did and that one day a cure for this horrendous disease will be found.
Dainere’s Rainbow Brain Tumour Research Fund maintains a lifetime commitment to helping eradicate this number one cancer cause of death in children. We are dedicated to raising awareness of paediatric brain tumours and raising money to fund research in memory of our most precious Dainere and hopefully seeing her greatest wish in life become a reality.
