Two-year-old girl fighting for her life after being diagnosed with ovarian cancer


This brave two-year-old girl is fighting for her life after being diagnosed with ovarian cancer.

Harlow has been receiving aggressive treatment including chemotherapy and is beating her fifty-fifty odds.

Mum, Bianca Langtree from California, and her British husband, Mark, were given the devastating news that their 15-month-old daughter Harlow had ovarian cancer.

It is a cancer of the ovaries which mainly affects women who have been through menopause.

In April 2016, before Harlow’s diagnosis, 27-year-old Bianca and 32-year-old Mark noticed there was something not right about her health.

Her appetite decreased, she threw up regularly, she was clingy more than usual and wanted to be held a lot.

Initially they believed she had caught a bug or had an ear infection, but when the doctors referred her to the Children’s Hospital of Orange County they had a feeling something was very wrong.

Bianca was four-months pregnant with their youngest daughter, Sienna, when Harlow was diagnosed with ovarian cancer.

An X-ray showed that Harlow had a tumour, which had taken over her ovary, and had to undergo major surgery to remove the it.

They had to take preventative measures, including removing her appendix.

Bianca and Mark decided to wait until Harlow completed her first round of chemotherapy before they broke the news to people outside their immediate family.
