    Story

    Thank you so much for taking the time to read our page, We are hoping to raise some money to help our dear friend and colleague Kelly with her battle to fight a Brain Tumour.
    Two weeks ago Kelly was told she had a Brain Tumour, a tumour that has wrapped so tight around the nerves in her brain; surgeons are not sure about the outcome - Kelly is off to hospital on Thursday 10th October, to prepare for Brain surgery on Friday the 11th October 2019. Kelly has been told surgery will be between 10 and 12hrs long. Kelly has been told the nerves affected include speech, hearing, eyesight and swallowing. Recovery will be a long process, and that means Kelly will not be working. Let us tell you a bit about Kelly; Kelly is 33 years of age, an incredible NHS Community Nurse, who recently earned a well deserved promotion to undertake a Band 7 Community Leader post. As well as her full time job, Kelly is also a doting aunt to her beautiful niece. If this was not enough, Kelly and her mother are big animal lovers, they have rescued Horses and Dogs from a life of misery, at the moment they have 9 rescue horses and 6 rescue border collies. The horses are based 40 minutes away from their family home, as Kelly will not be fit to help her mum look after the horses, we would like to be able to raise enough money for her mum to have a caravan on site, to make simple things easier - being able to make hot drinks on a cold day. Every penny raised will help Kelly and her family through the tough months ahead. Please donate what you can, it will mean so much. Thank you.

      Hi all, Kelly went home at the beginning of Jan, back to her army of furry friends, and of course her loved ones. It hasnt been all plain sailing, Kelly had a rough few days after coming down with an infection and was almost readmitted, but thankfully the medical professionals were able to treat her at home, and things are improving. Kelly visits a local hospice once a week recieving valuable support. Still a long way to go, but rome wasn't built in a day! And Kelly is one determined cookie! We wish you all a happy and healthy 2020 xx

      It's christmas eve and kelly remains in hospital - 7 sessions of radiation to go, before she can hopefully return home. It has be tough physically and emotionally, but ultimatly worthwhile. Kelly's going to have christmas with her family when she returns home, and is very much looking forward to it. The horses are struggling in the current weather conditions, and have been falling, resulting in vet bills causing kelly distress. Kelly's journey is in some newspapers, and we hope to continue with our fundraising. Merry Christmas all!
