Creina and Ross have been married for less than a year.
At 31 years of age and the mummy of two gorgeous little boys, she has recently received the devastating news that she has skin cancer and Hodgkins lymphoma.
Creina is a warm, caring, generous and fun loving girl and is loved very much by all her family and friends. Creina has named her cancer "Doris" and her positivity so far has been incredibly inspiring.
Creina has been writing an amazing blog documenting her journey which you read at:-
First diagnosis 2/9/17
I wasn't quite sure where to start, I really hope it picks up when I get into the swing of things....but start at the beginning and all that!
I am not a sun worshiper, actually I'm the opposite. I'm Irish, make up shade Alabaster (didn't even make ivory) and a red head! I learnt quite quickly sunburn is not a good look. There are emails made up of Irish sunburn for people to laugh at, and I decided not to be apart of the line up! Factor 30, at least 4 stars for me!
I also get my moles checked regularly, had a few around my neck removed a few years ago, so make sure I mention it to my GP each year. This year, nothing different, all look ok. No changes in size or colour.
Although only a few months married, Ross and I have been together for 9 years and have 2 children, we were not in the honeymoon stage. He has seen too much to go back there, ever. In October on a rare moment to myself I decided to shave my legs, In October! Its my running joke, "who shaves their legs in October" Anyway it was a botch job and I ended up cutting a mole on the back of my right leg. It scabbed but wasn't healing. Showed a GP who thought it may be when I shower the scab comes off but doesn't look anything to be concerned about. A few months later, January I mentioned it to my GP again as it still hadn't healed, but I wasn't worried. (I'm not going to build this up too much, you already know the ending!!!) She wanted it tested so off I went to dermatology and she said the same, probably repeat trauma, we can remove it just now if you want and send it to be tested. I am very much a, if can be done now, just do it! Two weeks later got called in for my results. So let me give you the first piece of gold information...if your called in, its not good news! If there is a nurse in the room, it's definitely not good news. The doctor will give you the bad news, do a runner and you will be left with a lovely nurse who is there to give you all the information and comfort you when you cry!
It was skin cancer, with ulceration so potential chance of spreading.....what...wait....what?
So I had walked to the hospital, its only 15 minutes away, but pushing a 2 year old and a 1 year old in a double buggy. So I was sweating...and now I'm in total shock, being asked to strip down to my non matching, "Bridget jones" pants and bra. While the lovely doctor is reassuringly saying she's a runner and being sweaty is ok. Well clearly I'm not a runner love!!!
We are trying to raise as much money as possible to help Creina and her family with the financial impact of cancer.
It would be fantastic if we could take away the added stress of finances considering everything else that they are facing just now.
Please help us reach our goal ♥️
