On Monday 25th June 2018 my beautiful and caring sister Coral was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma. No-one was prepared for this or how Coral would deal with the shocking news.
Instead of sitting and crying, the positivity and bravery Coral has shown has been astounding!
Coral is 24 years old, she is very hard-working, loves spending time with her family and friends, going on holiday and going to gigs. She is very funny, loving and is always a pleasure to be around.
Since February 2018, Coral had been getting the symptoms of Hodgkin's Lymphoma and was misdiagnosed as a chest infection.
Coral found a lump near her neck and had continuously said to the doctor that she didn't feel right. The scan showed a large mass and tumour on her chest.
Coral has started her treatment and chemotherapy which means that she can no longer work as doctors have advised against it which has resulted in struggling financially. During a biopsy, there is a 1 in 10 chance of your lungs collapsing. Unfortunately, on top of the diagnosis, Coral has been suffering with a collapsed lung which has caused even more discomfort and pain.
Coral had holidays booked which has now been cancelled as well as plans to spend time with her family and friends.
Coral is putting her life on hold until she is cancer free. Once she has the all clear she would like to be able to enjoy a family holiday and in the meantime she wants to adapt her home to be accessible and comfortable as possible.
So to raise money for my sister, I will be shaving my head and beard 31st October 2018.
Please return the kindness and support my amazing sister. Whether it is through monetary donations or just kind words! Our family appreciate all the support and we will be posting updates through the journey of Coral kicking cancer on her road to recovery.
