This is something i never thought i would ever have do.
Amanda is a Mother, Wife, Sister and daughter and one of the most positive people we have in our lives. She is always on hand to help out anyone she meets and is truly an amazing person
After never missing a smear test Amanda began experiencing unusual symptoms in March 2017. After numerous visits to the local GP Amanda was referred for a colposcopy examination and MRI. In May 2017 we received the devastating news that Amanda had Cervical cancer. It turned our whole world upside down but Amanda being Amanda pulled us all back up and was determined to fight this.
Months of Chemotherapy and Radiotherapy left her feeling weak but Amanda never lost the smile from her face or the determination in her heart. After a final treatment of Brachytherapy it was then antagonising 12 week wait to find out if the treatment had been successful.
In December 2017 Amanda received the news that the tumour in her cervix had gone. We were overjoyed by this news although in the next breath we were told that there was a lymph node that had appeared and the Doctors needed to investigate.
In January 2018 Amanda received the devastating news that the cancer had spread to lymph nodes and was now in her Pelvis and Lungs and that the hospital now had no cure and palliative care was her only option.
And that brings us up to today. After a lot of research and help from family and friends Amanda is now looking to have a treatment called Immunotherapy to help treat the lymph nodes that are still there. This is an amazing treatment but also expensive. Whilst we all wished money didn't matter, it does and we need to raise as much as possible to help with any treatment costs that may be coming our way
I would also love to raise some funds to help Amanda create some memories for her girls and her husband Luke to cherish forever.
