This is my best friend Justine she is 30 years old, a mother of 3 beautiful daughters (8,6 &5) and future wife to her fiancé Andrew. Justine is now facing the biggest battle ever following a misdiagnosis which has resulted in high grade stage 4 incurable cancer which has spread to The spine And suspected in lungs.
Justine went to the GP about a pea sized lump in her breast in May 2020, at this point was referred to the Breast clinic and was reassured that the lump was benign and due to her age (just 29 at the time) there would be no need for further investigation.
In September Justine returned to the GP as the lump had grown and there was another Lump In her armpit. Following this appointment Justine was again referred to the breast clinic. This referral took 3 months!! At this appointment a biopsy was taken. On the 21st Of December 2020 Justine was told she had high grade triple negative Breast cancer which was now in her lymph nodes, following multiple other scans and tests there have been multiple nodules on her lungs and confirmation that it is in her spine. This will mean a potential life expectancy of just one year to spend with her beautiful Family.
Justine is currently going through FECC chemotherapy at Velindre cancer centre Cardiff only 4 rounds left of this treatment, unsure if there is any further treatment available.
We need some help to get the funds together for Some additional treatment which should prolong her current life expectancy so she can enjoy life with her beautiful daughters! This is currently in discussions with the oncologist to find the right one that will give Justine the best chance of a good quality of life.
Let’s pull together and get Justine the treatment she deserves!
If Justine’s health deteriorates too quickly for additional treatment this money will firstly go to making final memories with her family and then onto helping the 3 daughters adjust to life without their mum.
