    Story

    I feel like the NHS have written me off!!!!

    Just over a year after I lost my boyfriend & father of my daughter to heart disease I was diagnosed with Stage 3, Grade 3, Triple Negative Invasive Lobular Breast Cancer aged 36.

    I have undergone a mastectomy, 8 rounds of aggressive chemo and was just about to start my radiotherapy when I got the devastating news that my cancer had spread to my spine.

    I received my terminal diagnosis a few weeks ago. They said that if the chemo works I will "hopefully" get two years. I started my maintenance chemo nearly three weeks ago.
    If they are right I will be 39 years old when I pass but more importantly my daughter will only be 9 years old and having lost her dad at 5, I need to stay here for as long as possible.

    The money I am trying to raise is intended for treatment outside the UK to prolong my life, to pay private for the mastectomy and hysterectomy that the NHS are now not allowing me to have because I am "terminal anyway" (I have the BRCA2 gene mutation) I have 85% chance of the other breast getting cancer. It may also cover the cost of my funeral as no parent should have to plan their child's funeral. What I'm trying to say is that...... Any money raised will not be wasted!

    I hate to ask for help but I desperately want to walk my daughter down the isle as her dad isn't here to do it, I need to be here as long as I possibly can for her. She has already been through too much in her short life.

    Thank you to everyone that has helped me and continues to do so. I am truly grateful for all my family and friends for their continued support through my journey.

    Even if you donate a pound I will still be extremely grateful and I love and am grateful for all your supportive messages XxXxX
