    Story

    **Win a full years massage **

    As most of you know I am due to have a big operation for a double mastectomy in April due to breast cancer, so to help financially I am trying to raise enough funds through a draw rather than claiming money from our goverment along with working my socks off this month. I did this for Kira a young teenage girl last year who also had cancer..never did I think a year later I would be needing to do it for myself..but thats life with 1 in 2 suffering with cancer! So how would it work. Each number 1 to 100 will cost £10..the number of tickets are unlimited so the more you buy, the more chances you have to win. I am hoping to only be off for 4/6 weeks so fingers crossed I will be back to my normal self in May. You can also help me by purchasing a mothers day voucher instead, each one purchased will also be entered. I am hoping to raise 1k to help provide for my daughter and my family whilst off. This is my third operation in a couple of months and being self employed it is not easy. I have set up my just giving page, so when you have donated, please let me know via text on 07428777326 or pm me on facebook and I will send you a number for each £10 donated. This is a wonderful opportunity to win a fabulous gift for yourself or a loved one. I will draw the draw on the morning of the 1st April live on facebook.

    As always thank you so much for all your support, love and care so many of you have shown so far. I am winning this battle and feel really good about the outcome 😘

      Sentinel lymph node removal. This involved removing some of my lymph under my arm to check to see if my cancer had spread.. I can tell you it was the worst part of my first operation. I took a lump under my arm meaning I couldn't get comfortable for over two wks..it was surreal..( having children was by far easier than this) I still suffer with severe nerve pain around my shoulder. Apparently it is meant to go within seven months so hoping one day to not have a firework going off in my shoulder whilst working and sleepin x

      This was my biopsy.. they make an incision in your breast and take out tissue to be sent for testing..unfortunatley it came back postive stage 2 breast cancer. It was nippy for a while but not to bad. The machine they use makes a loud snapping noises..so feels scary at the time. Results normally take 2 wks. My cancer was found by accident on an ultrasound, it was never picked up on my normal mamagram checks. Thankful and grateful to the lady who did the ultra sound who has def saved my life. X

      Wow! £690 already.. I just wanted to personally thank each and everyone of you for all your donations. Hopefully you will all have had a personal thanks and your numbers sent via email. 😊 Together they will really help take off the financial pressure to give me time to heal after my big operation. I will be in hospital between 5 and 7 days and thats without any infections setting in 🤞 I am really positive and hoping for a great outcome..mainly cancer free from breast cancer ever coming back to be here for my kids and grand kid. Xxx
