    Story

    I am starting this crowdfunding to help Justine Young, who was diagnosed with aggressive lymphoma cancer in June which had taken over her left chest cavity wrapping itself around her ribs and had spread down her back crushing two of her vertibrea, she has been through intensive chemotherapy which has not responded to her tumours and has been told she has a 25% chance of survival. Although only being diagnosed in June 2016 her journey began Christmas 2015 when she discovered a lump on her chest and was experiencing extreme back pain which made work as a hairdresser incredible hard for her, the drs wouldn't listen and told her to see a chiropractor for her back and sent her for mammograms for the lump which all came back clear as the cancer is not in her breast it is behind it in her chest, but still she carried on working everyday against the pain trying to carry on as normal as possible she never complained and always pointed out the bright side of things.
    She has been incredible optimistic and cheerful through out this journey and has truly been an inspiration and gone beyond being a strong woman, she has always put other people before her and been so caring and patient with everything she really is the glue that holds the family together.
    I wanted to start this crowdfunding to help pay for her medical bills, and to help towards her bills at home and so whatever time she has left she will be able to create memories with her two daughters who are 23 and 25 and her grandson who is 1 year old. Her dream has always been to be able to go to Borneo to see the orangutang and if this would mean she was able to do that it would be incredible.
    Thanks for taking the time to read this. Justine is not ready to give up this fight yet and we are not ready to lose her she has been an amazing daughter, partner, mother, sister and friend and has so many more memories to creat with her friends and family, thank you all so much

      Thank you to every one who helped make this possible I am truly blown away by you kindness and support, it is unfortunate and with great sadness that I have to say over Christmas mum was told there was no more they could do to help her and that the cancer had spread to her brain and lungs and was given just less then a week to live we are now waiting with her for her final days, and this money will now go towards her funeral costs. Once again from the bottom of our hearts as a family thank you all so so much. Olivia

      Price to pay to be able to spend more Christmas's with her. The drs want to give mum a bone marrow transplant and her brother is being tested on Tuesday to see if they are compatable to be a donner. We were told if mum is able to have he transplant it will help boost her levels and to help stop her body from producing and increasing the cancer cells growing any more, we are still remaining hopeful and are looking forward to spending Christmas as a family. Thank you all again so much x

      Hi every one, thank you all so so much from the bottom of our hearts for the amount we have raised so far and to every single person who has helped this means more to us then words can even say! I am so truly overwhelemed by the love and support for mum, Her levels have been slowly increasing to a more normal level and the dr wants to get her ready for the second round of treatment to start and told us he dosnt want to delay over Christmas. So unfortunately it looks as if mum will have to spend this Christmas in hopstial but that is a small..

      Mum spirits are still remaining high she is such an inspirational and strong woman, she is almost through the first round of the new treatment and will hopefully be allowed to come home for a week or two permitting she doesn't pick up any more bugs before having to go back for the second round of treatment which will unfortunately fall over the Christmas period where she will have to be admitted again, she has had a lot of fluids pumped in so has become very bloated which is very uncomfortable for her but still she never complains.
