Story

I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in summer 2016. Such a shock. Treatment seemed to be going well. Then in October I found out that there was a problem. It turned out that more cancer had been found in my lymph nodes. I am about to have further surgery on January 11th. Then more chemo will follow. This is bad news on its own, but to make things worse I'm still struggling financially. I'm on my own and get no state support. Paying rent and living costs is hard, as I only have freelance work and it's not well-paid. Instead of concentrating on my recovery, I will have to work as much as possible, with no guarantee of earning enough to pay my bills. But I don't have any alternative.

Unless ...

Your contributions will help me through this most challenging phase of my life. I live in a shared flat, and may have to move when I have recovered. At this point, I owe three months rent. This is causing me great anxiety. If I reach my target, I will have enough to pay what I owe and my living costs for a couple of months. If I raise even more, I will be in an even better position, able to focus on recovery and dealing with chemo. And when my situation has improved, I will be glad to help other people out in turn.

Thank you.

    It's now 6 days after surgery to remove cancerous lymph nodes and i'm supposed to spend a month recovering. I can't see how that can happen without meeting my goal, and the fund can't run forever. I'm 3 months behind on rent, another month will be due in 2 weeks. So although the surgery went well, I can't see how I can possibly dedicate the necessary time to recovery.I just can't. That isn't good, as after surgery your body needs a lot of time to heal. Then chemo will start before long. This is a terribly anxious time for me.

    Events took an unexpected turn this week. My treatment had appeared to be very successful, but then I found out that the tumour markers are up. This is likely to mean further treatment, maybe more chemo or radiotherapy. I won't know more until a scan is done, but this is a very worrying time for me. I need your help more than ever.
