    Story

    Thank you for reading our story, a story that I never ever wanted to have to write…
    Our Louise – if you’ve met her, I am sure you will remember her – she is the most truly amazing person, a mother, sister, daughter, aunty, granddaughter, and friend. A smile – so big and so strong, an infectious distinctive laugh that can only bring you joy.
    Louise was diagnosed with grade 2B cervical cancer almost a year ago. Never missed a smear test. She visited her GP several times over several months – he dismissed her concerns as hormonal after the birth of baby Jude. Finally after a private scan, she was diagnosed and Chemo and radio therapy followed. Months of gruelling treatment she completed her treatment in July 2016, they weren’t talking treatable they were talking curable. The next hurdle arrived, after she discovered a lump in her neck while waiting for the results of her initial treatment – more CT scans, bloods test revealed our worst nightmare the cancer had spread and they had now said it was incurable. Shortly before Christmas she completed her next round of radiation. Things seemed to be looking up, early January she was told no progression and things looked stable. Louise’s condition has deteriorated she is now very poorly, and has been in hospital for over 2 weeks, she had lifesaving surgery last week to stop a serious bleed. There is progression, and there is now no other options available under the NHS.
    37 years old, with three beautiful boys Joseph (12), Mateo (10) and baby Jude (1) – she isn’t ready to leave her boys, and we are not ready either. We need your help. We are exploring a private treatment called immunotherapy – it is our last, and only hope. There is nothing else left. The treatment is expensive, but we will do anything we can to give her that chance, the chance of more life, more time, more love. Please, please share our page, we need to fundraise as much as we can to support Louise as quickly as possible.
