    Weʼve raised £9,141 to help fund cancer treatment for Samantha Coley

    Funded on Wednesday, 28th June 2017

    Story

    Just when we thought that Sam was beginning to recover following two emergency operations in July 2016, which saw the remainder of her ruptured Appendix, Sepsis and a large part of her Colon removed, came the devastating blow that changed our lives in an instant.
    On Monday 8th August 2016, my beautiful 33 year old sister and best friend, a caring Mother to two gorgeous young boys was dealt her unexpected diagnosis; Stage 4 Incurable Metastatic Colon Cancer.

    Sadly, in January this year, Sam received further bad news; Secondary cancer in her Urethra and Pelvis. She will need to undergo another operation to remove this, but Sam’s desire for life along with her positive, brave and determined attitude continues to shine.

    Sam has currently endured 10 cycles of chemotherapy but unfortunately her treatment has been on hold due to a large bleed at the beginning of February this year. Unsurprisingly Sam treats this as a minor setback and continues to smile throughout her relentless ordeal. She never ceases to amaze us with her phenomenal fighting spirit.

    We are currently trying to raise funds to cover the cost of tests and private therapies/treatments that aren't available on the NHS. Finding Sam the best treatment available is imperative to help prolong her life. We hope this will also allow Sam to spend valuable time with her loved ones.

    This is where we need your help.. absolutely any donation, no matter how big or small will help to assist my precious sister in her fight for a longer life.

    Over the coming months we will be holding a number of fundraising events. We will also be posting regular updates on Sam's progress so you can follow her journey and battle against Cancer.

    Thank you for taking the time to read Sam's story and for your generosity and support. My family and I are eternally grateful X

      Sadly today Sam was given more devastating news; the cancer in her lungs and Pelvis area's has spread further and now there is a new growth involving her Sigmoid Colon. They have also said that it doesn't look like the chemotherapy is working, however, she will remain on it for now until there is a plan of action with regards to next steps put in place. Raising funds now is more important than ever to try and give us other options to help prolong her life. Thanks to all who have helped in any way so far to get us past the £40,000 mark X

      Thank you so much to everyone who has donated to Sam's cause so far. There have been several successful fundraisers recently including the Family Sunday Funday, Quiz & disco night and the Nelson School Tote Race night. This has helped us to now reach half of our target alongside her justgiving page; an amazing total of £40,000! We are truly overwhelmed by everyone's support and generosity and will forever appreciate the chance you are giving Sam in helping to prolong her life. Thank you! X

      Today we were sadly advised that Sam has developed secondary cancer in both lungs. This is devastating news to us all, but Sam has declared in true fighting style that she will never give up trying to beat this. There have been a few suggestions on treatment from her oncologist, but other than her usual chemotherapy all of these treatments are privately funded. We need to continue raising money to cover these treatments and help Sam in her fight! Together we can do this X
