Our beautiful mum, Lynette Shaw, at just 57 years old was diagnosed with stomach cancer in March this year and has been undergoing Chemotherapy over the last few months. We were informed by the doctors that they couldn't find any evidence it had spread and were confident that is was contained within the stomach and her only chance was to have surgery to remove the stomach. She underwent surgery on Wednesday 9th August to remove the stomach but as they opened her up, our worst nightmare came true...it has spread to her pancreas and is inoperable.
She moved back to the UK from Spain in 2012 after living there for 12 years when our Nan (now 84) was diagnosed with Dementia, unfortunately she had no choice as she could no longer work the hours needed to survive and still look after Nan. She has spent the last 10 years altogether looking after our Nan and being her sole carer which of course she was happy to do as anyone would be for their mum but has meant she has been unable to travel and do the things she's wanted to do....to now be given a terminal prognosis in her prime retirement years.
We really want our mum to enjoy however much time she has left, and to do some of the things that's she's always wanted to do but never had the chance because she's been so busy looking after all of us.
One of the things she has always wanted to do is travel to America so we'd really like to make that happen for her and be able to go with her especially as she would like to marry her long term partner, Chris, in Las Vegas...they've been together for over 10 years and like everyone does, thought they'd have more time...so we would all like to be witness to that lovely occasion.
Please donate whatever you can so we can at least make 1 of our mum's dreams come true.
