She is a mum of 4 and has the sweetest kindest heart. She gives always to so many people and never asks for anything in return.
In January 2020 she went for tests after noticing a dimple in her boob which she was convinced was just a blockage in a milk duct as at the time she was breast feeding her 9 month old baby.
Amy was diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer on World cancer day.
She was told she wasn't considered to be too high risk and her chances of surviving the cancer and moving on with her life were very high.
A plan was made...
Get on with your life!
Instead Amy has had a turbulent year which has been far from on plan...
Chemotherapy - 2 cycles then stopped due to covid.
Tamoxifen - 6 weeks worth, stopped due to chronic migraines.
Zoladex and Anasterole - 3 months worth, stopped because it wasn't working.
Licap flap breast surgery to remove the cancer and surrounding tissue and repair the breast and lymphnodes taken.
Cancer found in the lymphnodes and marginal tissue (now stage 3 cancer)
Further surgery to remove marginal tissue.
Infection in the wound.
Chemotherapy - 2 cycles to mop up any cancer potential left behind.
Discovery of cancer metastases in her liver, lungs and bones (now stage 4 cancer)
This is not curable.
Amy has switched her care to a new oncologist and has now started a new care plan. She's just had her ovaries removed to help keep her cancer at bay and had radiotherapy. This week she starts a further 2 treatments to hopefully push the cancer back and slow the spread.
Amy has already endured a whole year of cancer treatment and has now got to come to terms with the fact that cancer will now be her life.
She is struggling but will not ask for help.
Amy has constant pain in her back and hips due to the disease in her bones.
She is physically and mentally drained from her ongoing treatments and she is still trying to manage a home and be a good mum to her 4 children. Her partner Mark has had to cut back his time at work to help give her the support she needs and as a result money has become tighter and tighter.
Amy has no means of funding a bucket list, she is having to choose between creating debt of making memories with her family.
She has no safe and comfortable outdoor space to relax in and enable her to soak up some vitamin D into her bones.
Her best therapy she has found is being in the bath. It eases her pain better than anything else but her bathroom is bearly fit for purpose.
She wants to be able to pay for the foods and supplements that are being suggested as a means to improve her health and keep the cancer hopefully at bay.
She would like to be able to buy herself a wig go give her a chance to be Amy again... not just Amy who has cancer.
Amy is massively uncomfortable with the idea of asking for help with these things but I can see her struggling and I believe she deserves help.
So please no matter how big or small of a donation, this will help massively towards getting this incredible human being things she needs. Amy has done so much for others and always gives to charity so I'm asking you to help return the favour in her time of need and please share this far and wide to get her and her family as much as possible xx Loretta and Amyxx
