Story

My Story: “The day you become a Mum is the day you start watching your heart walk around outside of your body”.

My name is Linzi Page, i am 37 and “Linzi’s Army” is fundraising to provide access to cancer treatments that sadly the NHS cannot fund. The funds will give me access to chemotherapy that will prolong my life further and give me access to cutting edge treatments. Any monies not used directly for this cause will be donated to Maggies Cancer Centres and Bowel Cancer UK.

I have 2 young children - Calan (7) and Charlotte (3), who are my world. In April 2018 my perfect world was shattered when I was diagnosed with stage 4 metastatic bowel cancer and furthermore to be told in December it was now incurable. I was fit, healthy and despite rectal bleeding, never expected to be told I had cancer, much less the severity of the diagnosis.

My biggest battle is not the chemotherapy, the surgery or the endless hospital trips. It is the thought of missing out on all the milestones that I should be there to share with my children - 1st day at school, school plays, sporting achievements, their weddings and all their successes. I want my kids to remember that I did everything I could to be with them as long as possible and to make as many memories as we could.

I want my legacy to be filled with joy and laughter. So... who‘s with me?

    A little update. Chemo session 6/6 starting on 22nd Feb and then a very important scan on 3rd March. I have everything crossed that my body is still responding to the chemo and I see a reduction in the tumours. If this the case, a have a big referral to London pending and that will determine the next direction I go. I am very nervous at the moment as there are some big decisions to be made soon however, I am eternally grateful for the support everyone shown me, which has helped me get this far! Thanks x

    Thank you to everyone who has supported me both financially and emotionally recently. I wish I could thank everyone personally as your support means the world to me. I also wish I didn't have to fund my treatment by these means but I will continue to fight to make a change for both myself and hopefully for others. Thanks again, I am truly touched by everyone's kindness and generosity. xxx

    Someone recently gave me a nudge to update everyone on my progress. Sorry! Things are currently going ok, although I am NEVER complacent as I know it can change with 1 bad scan. I am ‘reasonably stable’ and my expensive treatment is ‘working’.The invoices pop through the door every 3 weeks and I despair at how much money I burn, at an alarming rate, but needs must. It’s all validated when I am loving life with the ones I love. So for now, thank you all again and I will continue spending the money at an alarming rate for as long as I can. xxx
