Story

**PLEASE READ** My sister has recently fallen terminally ill and diagnosed with a Epithelioid Sarcoma this is a type of cancer that develops from certain tissues, like bone or muscle.Bone and soft tissue sarcomas are the main types of sarcoma. Soft tissue sarcomas can develop from soft tissues like fat, muscle, nerves, fibrous tissues, blood vessels, or deep skin tissues.

Epithelioid sarcoma is a rare soft tissue sarcoma in young adults (typically ages 20-39) involving the upper extremities. At the very least, it will require surgery to remove the tumor. Further treatment plans are still being discussed, but chemo and radiation are far from unrealistic.

Verity was diagnosed in December just before Christmas and told they would need to arrange more tests and keep her in stepping hill hospital until they had further results and more light on the severity of the cancer and the life expectancy.

In January 2018 the professor at Christies gave the devastating and sickening news that my sister only had 1 year left to live.

On Friday the 02nd February my sister started her first day of chemotherapy to help shrink the tumor and hopefully give a better surviving chance with less discomfort.

Monday the 09th April 2018 We had furher horrid news to advise Verity she had only a few days left as the tumour was more agressive than expected and grown in size.

Verity chose to spend her last few days at home relaxed with her family and friends and in her own bed.

When Cancer hits a family member there is such a huge domino effect that follows and only until you personally get affected its hard to understand.

My aim for creating the Justgiving page was to go and enjoy as many experiences as possible which we did until she passed away , the remaining donations then helped massively by funding a huge party for Veritys send off !

All further donations will now go towards important and crucial research to help spot earlier these horrid Sarcomas and support those affected.

Thank you
