    Story

    My sister Angela has been through 10 years of battling Breast cancer. She was 37 when she was diagnosed with grade 3 breast cancer. After a mastectomy and reconstruction followed by 5 years of hormone therapy she thought she was clear. 2 years later and 3 years of back pain she was giving the terrible news that it wasn't sciatica but the breast cancer had spread to her rib cage, spine and pelvis. Fast forward 8 months a gallstone removal the treatment has stopped working. Angela will undergo hopefully 18 weeks of chemotherapy and another hormone treatment that won't cure here but may give her some more time. Angela has always worked but now due to lymphodema in her arm and legs she finds it difficult to get out and a bout leaving her stuck in the house most of the time. I'm looking for help to,give Angela a better quality of her life. Help with housework a carer whilst housebound, and a holiday with her daughter and husband to be. She is getting married in 2 weeks time and before this she will have radiotherapy and an operation to plant a portacath ( her veins won't take anymore infusions). What I'm looking for is for my friends and family and hers to find a few pound to help make this happen 💕Oh I forgot to say I'm scared of heights and if we make the 100% in doing a Zip wire at the Eden Project aghhhh

      So one day after randomly thinking of ways to make my sister and her families life more comfortable, I ridiculously said I would do a Zip Wire at Eden Project. Little did I know that it will probably be sooner than later. I have just got myself a book on Amazon ' How to overcome your fear of heights' please feel free to message any help! Once again and I know Angela will actually kill me for doing this but you generosity and spirit is going to allow Angela and her family some respite, help in the home and allow her to get out and about. bless x
