Story

Hi
My name is Karen and I am 39 years old.
I have 5 children ranging in ages from 6 years old to 23.
In October of this year nearly at the end of my training to become a firefighter I found a lump in my breast.
It turned out to be cancer which was a triple negative at stage 3.
I had surgery to remove the lump and do a full lymph node clearance which was not successful as the lump was bigger than expected..
Because of the size of the tumour and the fact that 14 lymph nodes were heavily infected I was sent for a ct scan.
The results of this were that I already had secondary breast cancer in the top of my chest and neck and it wasn't curable and I roughly had 3 months left to live. My only hope is a immunotherapy treatment which is only available privately at the moment as its still only in the trial stages in the uk. I understand that this is going to be a massive challenge to rise this much money and anyone that can afford anything to donate it will be greatly appreciated ❤ x

greatly appreciated.
