Lorna is a high school friend of mine who hasnt had the easiest of times just recently.
I have put this gofundme page in the hope to raise some money to help fund flying Lorna and her family out to America for a holiday of a lifetime, and make some amazing memories with her family of 5. Not only this, but to help Lorna and Jonny worry less about outgoing bills, be able to fund items they are in need of such as a tumble dryer and a hoover, which just simply dont come cheap and lastly to just have simple days out as a family.
This will never be enough to take away the pain and heartache of what she is feeling right now - but hopefully it will lift her spirits at whats supposed to be the happiest time of her life bringing newborn twins into the world and Christmas around the corner.
Here is Lorna's story in her own words:
I was first diagnosed with breast cancer in February 2019, I had a double mastectomy the following month, followed by egg preservation, 6 months of chemotherapy and 3 weeks of radiotherapy. In January 2020 I had a scan which showed no evidence of cancer. We fell pregnant naturally in March 2020 with twins. In November 2020 I went to a&e following a conversation with 111 about breathlessness and a change to my voice and cough. I had a scan of my chest which revealed a mass. After a couple of days in hospital I had a conversation with my oncologist who arranged a biopsy to be done. We decided to have the twins delivered early so we could commence any treatment that may be needed. The Friday following the birth of the twins, I received the news that the breast cancer had returned and was now stage 4, meaning it is incurable.
Any donation no matter the amount is deeply, deeply appreciated and will hopefully give Lorna the best life possible with her beautiful family.
Thankyou so much ❤️
