Story

Dear fellow humans!

For those of you who don’t know (that’s probably lots of you, whoever the audience I am writing to is! as I haven’t told many people). I have had a diagnosis of breast cancer.

It’s obviously devastating and really, really stressful, scary and unsettling.

I have been having lots of alternative treatment. I have intravenous mistletoe therapy once a month. A weekly mistletoe injection, acupuncture, infra red saunas, CBD oil, take every supplement under the sun and do a long list of various other things that are advised when you are in my situation.

I am totally resourceful and any of you who know me well know that I am the queen of wangling and making things happen.

What’s happened now is, my ultimate wangle, selling my flat to release £ for treatment as faltered, and the flat sale has fallen through last minute. It's like my boat has capsized. I’ve been putting everything on that happening and waiting for the £ to come from the flat so that I could continue with the treatments and tests. My flat sale fell through two weeks before we were supposed to move and the hardest part of that is that I am stranded without means.

I have lots of doctor’s appointments and test and treatment plans booked in and now I haven’t the cash I need to pay for them. What I am asking for is your love, shows of kindness and support. I really appreciate the comfort of friendships and being able to be able to rest and be myself with people. Hanging out is the best. Help and time I know are hard to give as we are all so busy. Any shows of help, love, kindness and support are truly wonderful and welcomed. I am in quite a lot of denial about it, to be able to survive, but recently, more and more, I know I need to reach out for support.

What I really need at the moment is some cash to be able to afford the treatments i have planned for the next 6 months. I am using a non-radiating circulating tumor cell detection test to monitor my progress every 6 months; I have the next one booked in on 8th May. The results from the last one in November, did go down which was encouraging. Any donations of any value would really help me be able to continue treatment and have further monitoring tests.

I obviously am desperate to see how things are going. I also am due to have a private PET scan as the NHS only offer that in late stage cancer, it is however the most thorough scan for cancer. The circulating tumor cell test is £600 and the PET scan is £1000.

I’m really happy to give more detail to those who are interested and can send out an email with more details if you’d like, save this one being to long. I want to say that I have explored every practical option I can think of and I do welcome people’s suggestions but ask that you are mindful that there is so much information out there and I have looked into a lot of things/ways/approaches etc.… I would love your advice or suggestions just please know that I have thought a lot about all of this already. I listening ear is more helpful to me at the moment, or a question about what I might need instead of, “Have you thought about this?” to which the answer will invariably be “Yes.”

As I said I am employing the use of denial and am using the approach and avoid tactic, with all the other responsibility and time restrictions of life and parenting this is getting as much attention as I can emotionally give it. Any support would be welcomed deep into my heart.

Actually connecting to my heart, the fear of this is overwhelming, I long to be looked after and to be told its going to be ok. At times I feel like its all going well and I’m so grateful for what I have now and at others it feels like something I want to escape from and just keep running. A mix between denial, optimism and dread.

Thank you for reading and I love you all so much!

It's scary reaching out and makes it all the more real to tell people.

UPDATE: My results went down from 4.9 to 3.2!! its working!!! thanks for all your support xx

Thanks again.

Love, Lisa.
