My sister was diagnosed with thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension 2 years ago.without major surgery she was given about 5 years .luckily she was a candidate for surgery she had about 7 months off work and because she has her own house could only get statutory sick pay .but we stuggled through.they took her to surgery and foun 20 clots,she went to intensive care .she had a slight bleed on her brain and had got infection .after a rew days all was going well and moved her to a ward.but she started to deteriote and turns out she had another clot gone to her heart so they had to take her back to surgery.after a week all was well and let her come now the road to recovery.she finally had the all clear in september 2017. We started making plans to go on holiday now she was back at work and all that she had been through ,a holiday would mark the end to her ill health finally.we finally put it behind us . In febuary 2018 she found out she has breast cancer.exactly 31 years ago our mom died in febuary from breast cancer our biggest fear had just hit us like a train .3 weeks later she had her breast removed and now has to have 6 rounds of chemo.once again she has had to go on the sick thats all she can get money wise £92 i think she has only just started putting her life together and now this.once again cant get any help.i think its terrible some one who has worked all her adult life struggled to pay her bills never had any help ,when really needed cant get asking for help to cover bills and living expenses. l love my sister with all my heart its always been me and her since mom died please if you could help that would be amazing thank you
