Story

Can anyone please help us raise money to live on.

Me and my wife Sarah Jennie Mayfield-Chester both have cancer and the government don't want to help.

I have grade III incurable brain cancer which they operated on and was unable to remove it all, I finished my treatment of radiotherapy and adjuvant chemotherapy in August.

We had been going through IVF due to my cancer diagnosis and in September our final frozen embryo stuck!! We had a brief period of happiness before my wife found a lump in her breast around 7 weeks pregnant. Once the biopsy came back it confirmed she has grade 3 triple negative breast cancer which is a very aggressive form of breast cancer and spreads quickly. Even with having a mastectomy on 6th Dec the pathology results showed the cancer has spread to her lymphnodes so she needs to start chemotherapy at the end of January which will carry risks to both her and the baby.

Along side all the stress and worry of treatment we have the worry of how we will afford to live as she's self employed so no work means no money . The ESA letter arrived today stating that because she's already in receipt of carers allowance (for looking after me) she will get a grand total of £6.95 a week extra and have to wait till Feb/March for a decision on 'limited capability for work support group' which potentially won't apply because she wants to go back to work once she's experienced her first round of chemo and knows how it will affect her.

I'm not one to beg but any little help would mean a great deal even if you just share the fundraiser it will mean a lot . Love to you all!! ❤❤❤
