Story

How it began

Cassie has had a very tough time with her health over the last 4 1/2 years she was diagnosed with bilateral breast cancer in August 2016 and they also discovered a lesion in her brain which they think is from the breast cancer. This stages her at stage 4, half way through her treatment she was told she had a melanoma on the sole of her foot as well.

 Following Stereotactic Radiotherapy Surgery to the lesion in her brain she underwent a grueling 7 rounds of chemo. Cassie had to have bilateral lumpectomies and nodes removed from both armpits and she also has had to have a total hysterectomy.

 Cassie, shortly after going through chemo for her breast cancer, had to have the melanoma taken out of the sole of her foot just before commencing radiation for her breast cancer and was on crutches for over four months along with having to undergo radiation for her breast cancer at the same time.A year after she had the melanoma was removed from the sole of her foot she was told that she had a melanoma in her groin.

Cassie had to undergo a groin dissection and have 10 nodes removed this has left her with acute pain from lymphedema. This now puts her at stage 4 for skin cancer.

 Our local lady Cassie,

Cassie works as a volunteer radio presenter for our local community radio station Mighty Radio here in Southport and has a mid-morning show 10am till 1pm Monday to Saturday and Sunday 10am till 12pm midday 7 days a week.

During lockdown she has been an amazing support for the community of Southport as she kept the listeners informed of all the local businesses that were trading and doing deliveries also compiling a huge list of the contact numbers and opening times and emergency numbers for people to be able to access she shared and updated this every day for over 3 months and made sure she was reaching as many people as possible in our Southport community. She has never missed a show at all for the last 2 years she has done her show.

 Throughout all of this Cassie has still had to undergo her treatment for breast cancer with Clatterbridge Hospital Merseyside nurses coming to her home every 3 weeks where she has intravenous medications that she will undergo for life or as long as it is working.

Cassie also has to have immunotherapy treatment intravenously which Clatterbeidge nurses come to the house every 4 weeks to do. Along with scans and skin checks, heart scans and all the treatments she certainly has a lot to deal with.

 Just before lockdown happened Cassie was nominated for Merseyside Woman Of The Year however this has had to be moved forward to next year where she is still nominated. Instead she was put forward for Merseyside Woman Of The Year Marvel which she won along with 5 other nominees.

 The community of Southport are very proud of Cassie and despite all that she has gone through she has worked and continues helping and supporting the community.

During November and December of 2020 cassie had to undergo 5 surgeries to her left leg as the cancer had come back she never missed a show amd even did one of them from her hospital bed.

The Cancer had returned.

Unfortunately the cancer has returned and they can no longer operate. The only alternative not is to do a procedure called Isolated limb perfusion, which is very vicious chemotherapy. Without this treatment cassie has been told she is unlikely to reach this Christmas. There are only three hospitals that do this treatment Glasgow, Leeds and Birmingham.

    We would like to thank everyone who has donated, and who are still donating! We’re so overwhelmed by all of your generosity and love! Cassie will be checking into Leeds hospital on the 1st July with the procedure taking place on the 2nd. We couldn’t have done this without you. The NHS will now pay for the main procedure but consultations alone cost £225, with aftercare, transport and therapy’s to add. Without you, this would not be possible. We will keep you all informed on Cassie’s progress. Thank you

    Cassie is so so grateful for all of your amazing donations! We have smashed the target! We couldn’t have achieved this without you! Cassie is going to start doing video blogs to keep you all updated on her progress. We don’t know how long recovery will take, and/or how long she’ll be in hospital after the treatments. Follow up appointments, therapies and travel expenses all cost money. Any money over the target will be used to help Cassie recover. Anything left after her recovery will be donated to her chosen charity. Thank you all so much.
