Weʼre raising £40,000 to help fund cancer treatment for Samantha Coley

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


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, since we first set up Sam's previous justgiving page, she has been dealt more devastating news; Secondary cancers in her Pelvis/Urethra, Lungs and most recently Sigmoid Colon. Despite this Sam’s desire for life along with her positive, brave and determined attitude continues to shine. She never ceases to amaze us with her phenomenal fighting spirit.

Sam is currently on second line chemotherapy and has so far endured 18 cycles of chemotherapy in total.
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 the past 6 months, there have been several fundraising events for Sam and in total with our previous justgiving link over £40,000 has been raised. We will be holding further fundraisers to try and reach the rest of our ultimate goal which is £80,000 which we hope will go a long way in getting Sam the required medical help. We will continue to post 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

    The last few months have not been good for Sam with news of progression with her current tumours and confirmed new tumour in her rectum. Despite this Sam still holds her head high and will not be defeated 💪🏻 Our fundraising efforts are more important than ever! A massive thank you to all who attended our Gala Dinner last Saturday which raised £10,015! £2003 of that amount has now been donated to Beating Bowel Cancer as promised and the rest towards raising our current target to get Sam cancer treatment which is not offered on the NHS X

    On the 13th Nov Sam was refused treatment due to low Platelet levels. Her Oncologist made the decision to postpone treatment until seeking a second opinion as this has happened the past 3 consecutive visits. We saw a Specialist who advised her tumour levels are currently at the highest they’ve been. It could be due to no treatment for 4 weeks but as they were on the increase prior to that it appears the Herceptin is no longer working. In replacement of her Herceptin/Folfox she will start oral chemo with other possible drugs to be discussed soon

    Update from the Page owner

    Thank you to my wonderful work/colleagues who coordinated a Halloween funday with cake sale last week to raise treatment funds for Sam. £268 was made and as usual we are very grateful. So many people have been doing such wonderful things for Sam recently and we just want to remind you all how much this means to us. Thank you 😘 X
