Story

Sally 32 is a wife to Liam and a mother of four beautiful children, Ryan, Adam, Maisy and George who are aged between 2 and 11. In May last year she was diagnosed with bowel cancer this was after suffering with severe stomach pains for 3 years and 12 visits to the doctors, who following NICE guidelines, informed her it was IBS.
Sally was told that the cancer was at stage 4 and had spread to her liver, both lungs, lymph nodes and peritoneum (abdominal wall lining) and that it was incurable; she was given 3 years to live. Sally was put onto intensive chemotherapy to which she responded well initially, but she was recently told the chemotherapy was no longer working.
After doing their own research the family have found other proven treatments available, however they are not being offered to her via NHS because the NHS will not fund stage 4 cancer patients. As a result sally’s family and friends have been raising funds in a variety of ways to help pay towards the treatment privately.
The family is currently looking at Immunotherapy at the Hallwang Clinic in Germany. This treatment has shown some amazing results! And so the fight for Sally's life, and their fundraising, continues.
So, to help support this lovely determined lady, I am completing an abseiling event with her family and friends on the 4 December 2016 at the Jury inn in Bradford.
I would really be grateful if you could spare a few quid and sponsor me please, any donation will be very much appreciated by Sally and her family.
Sally is very keen to raise awareness of her story, so other young people know to insist on further investigation if they are worried. NICE guidelines state that no matter what the symptoms, if you are young, further tests do not need to be carried out. Young people can, and do, get bowel cancer, Sally is proof of this.
You can follow Sally’s story on her Facebook page So, Sally can wait.
Thanks for taking the time to read this and any support you can offer.

    Looking at getting news çoverage for the abseiling event. If the family can get coverage the event will be free, which means more money towards the funds.
