    Story

    Louise 38 is a mother of 3 young children & was diagnosed with grade 2B cervical cancer in March 2016. She never missed a smear test. She visited her GP several times over several months – he dismissed her concerns as hormonal after the birth of baby Jude. Finally after a private scan, she was diagnosed and Chemo and radio therapy followed. Months of grueling treatment which ended in July 2016, they weren’t talking treatable but were talking curable. She discovered a lump in her neck while waiting for the results of her initial treatment – more CT scans, bloods test revealed her worst nightmare the cancer had spread and now it was incurable. Shortly before Christmas she completed her next round of radiation. Things seemed to be looking up, then early in January she was told no progression and things looked stable. Louise’s condition then deteriorated making her very poorly, There is progression with the tumour growth and now no other options available under the NHS. She had to undergo surgery for a Nephrostomy as the tumor was restricting her kidney function, and embolization to two arteries due to haemorrhaging.
    The family have explored every treatment possible, as any desperate family would, and were introduced to a private treatment called immunotherapy. It is her last, and only hope. There is nothing else left. The treatment is expensive, but she will do anything to give her that chance, the chance of more life, more time, more love with her boys.

    So far enough funds have been raised to get Louise started with her immunotherapy. She flew to Germany to a private clinic where she has started the initial treatments & the results are very promising.

    However this initial fundraising has run out & as a mother myself Louise's story struck a chord with me & that is where I am. What can I do to help? I can walk - I power walk so looked at challenges for which i can be sponsored & help in some very small way. So please sponsor me to give her the Gift of Time.

      So I did it & to my complete amazement managed a very respectable 19th place (10th lady) 😄. Amazing day started off with a wrong turn getting to the start. This meant I walked an additional 4 miles & boy did my feet feel it at the end!. London is an amazing place. I walked through a complete mix of cultural & socially different parts but all vibrant & enlightening in their own way. My total sponsorship is almost at the £400 so wouldn't it be great to get it to the target. A big thank you to all of you who have sponsored so far. Love you all.
