    Please Support me to Raise £30,000 for life saving Selective Internal Radiation Therapy, Treatment for my daughter Karen Harley.
    My daughter Karen Harley was diagnosed with cancer of the small bowel in April 2016. We were absolutely devastated however; Karen’s battle began and after six months of intense chemo a new, MRI identified bowel cancer had spread to her liver. Prognosis 18 months with chemo, nine months without.
    Karen’s new biological treatment began however I nearly lost karen at Christmas time 2016 her Chemo was unsuccessful..
    Karen’s zest for life and great positive attitude, she will fight this battle once again
    My research journey began, endless days and sleepless nights on the computer, alas I discovered a Professor Ricky Sharma of Harley St clinic in London, whom discovered great success through pioneering a clinical trial of alternative treatment.called
    Selective Internal Radiation therapy the procedure is millions of beads called microspheres which are radioactive are injected into the artery that supplies the liver.and kills the tumours the treatment has now been clinically tried and has had proven success. This treatment during trial was available on NHS up until April 2017. Now not available on NHS.
    Professor Ricky Sharma has been in-touch with Karen, viewed her scans and believes she would be an excellent candidate to receive lifesaving treatment help Karen survive.
    The cost of this treatment is £30,000 to give my daughter the opportunity to live and fulfil her dream to one day meet her grandchildren.
    My Beautiful daughter
    As a mum with only two daughters, I am asking you for commitment to help me save my daughter’s life. Also, to support her husband Ross and two children Deana and Myles.
    All support and donation’s no matter how small will be greatly accepted. Any ideas on how to raise this money we would also welcome.

      As you already know we were putting a shower in the downstairs toilet for Karen but the space was to small so we turned her dining room down stairs in to a bedroom , we used some of the just giving money for this purpose, a new bed and tv and all the comforts that go with a new bedroom,I also gave £500.00 back to some people who donated and I am donating £1000.00 to the Mari curie hospice for their care of Karen at home along with myself sadly Karen passed away at home on the 2nd of December so thanks again for your support karens mum💖
