A group of old school friends have got together after 14 years to help support our friend Kate Mciver (previously Dyment). We are holding a fund raisng event to raise as much money as we can...
Kate was diagnosed with Stage 3 Breast Cancer in 2016, aged 28 having just married her husband Chris, and with their precious one year old daughter Lucia (now 3).
Kate endured 4 operations, 6 months of intense chemotherapy and radiotherapy and 20 steroids a day. Her life was turned upside down, but being the warrior that she is, she was given the good news that the cancer had gone just 12 months later in 2017. (You can read more of Kate’s initial diagnosis here).
Fast forward to 2018, exactly 2 years since her diagnosis, and after spending those 2 years trying to regain her health and obtain a normal family life, we’ve been given the devastating news that the cancer has returned in an incurable form.
Kate is beginning urgent NHS treatment to manage the tumours, now in areas of her bones. Whilst we will do everything that we can, there are a number of additional options available to Kate, at home as well as the potential of new, advanced treatments not available on the NHS. All of this will assist with bone healing and pain management, as well as supporting the success of Kate’s medical treatment.
These additional, but extremely crucial treatments are costly and this is where we ask for your help, by way of donation, however great or small to help us get Kate the extra time she deserves to spend with the people she loves.
