A mother's love has no bounds.
My name is Lisa Wells, I’m 31 and #LisasArmyUK is fundraising for my beautiful girls Ava-Lily (5), Saffia, 11 weeks and Dorothy House. I was diagnosed with Stage 4 Terminal Bowel and Liver cancer shortly after Saffia’s birth.
I married my childhood sweetheart Dan whom is my world, and we’ve been together 16 years. After a long road of many angel babies we welcomed our 2nd daughter Saffia in October 2017. Shortly after giving birth, I was given the devastating news that I had 2-12 months to live. All the aches and pains I had experienced during pregnancy I had put down to the pressures on the body that every woman experiences during that time, but in fact they were cancer warning signs.
My biggest battle is not the chemo or the cancer I face, but that I wish to leave my girls a lasting legacy in my absence and help others in a similar position. I won’t get to see my girls reach the milestones every mother should – helping to pick out their wedding dresses, celebrate their successes or keys to their first home. So instead I want to raise an army of friends, family and supporters to help carry them through those experiences and to know their mum did all of this in their name. My legacy will not be filled with sadness, but joy, laughter and love. Who’s with me?
On mother’s day 11th March, #LisasArmyUK will march a 20km route from Westbury White Horse to stick it to cancer and smash our target. More details can be found on www.lisasarmy.co.uk. I want my girls to be proud of their mummy and what I did for them and others. A percentage of all proceeds with go to Dorothy House.
