Tanya Takes On Cancer!

£10,229 of £7,500 goal

Raised by 135 people in 4 months
Hi Folks! Cathy here - I'm part of the incredible force of nature that is #TeamTanya. If you're visiting this page - welcome! You've no doubt had the pleasure of meeting Tanya, a formidable woman across the games and entertainment industry, a warm and loving friend to many, and someone who will battle cancer, and win. (I'd be scared if I was cancer...just saying). 

Tanya has already done a few rounds with a beast known as BOB to her friends (aka the Big Oncology Bump), after a long-running cold and an ever-swelling tummy started to grow earlier this year, she was diagnosed with cancer. She's since had an emergency operation to remove her ovaries, a portion of her bowel, and is now facing chemotherapy to shrink and control cancer on her liver.

It's been a difficult year, but our girl is strong and on the mend! 

However, facing a round of chemotherapy, and time taken away from work, has meant that she needs some support to make sure she lives comfortably while having the treatment. We're raising funds to cover all her expenses over the next three months, to make sure she can relax a little and not have any additional stress to battle! 

Tanya is one of those people who will quite literally do anything to help another person - and we'd like to do the same for her. 

If you can help by donating to Tanya's Cancer Battle fund, we would be incredibly grateful - and I know Tanya will be so touched by your ongoing support. 

Any questions, let us know!

So we’ve had some interesting highs and lows since the last update.
On the down side, I’ve been informed by my oncologist that I’ll be on Chemotherapy for the rest of my life with no intended breaks
On the plus side not only am I designing a new fashion label for chemo patients, I am also planning to launch a new YouTube channel Vlog covering life with chemotherapy which will be called “How I Live Now” I’ll post more updates as I get closer to launching the first video.
In the meantime we’re on day two of cycle four and this was me getting home from the hospital super late because we got delayed due to my blood tests showing I have low white cell counts making it sightly more dangerous than usual for me to be having my bottle of poison!

We’re in the lull between chemotherapy sessions. I start again on Monday. In the meantime I’ve been navigating the side effects roulette which has been an interesting learning curve. Here’s me at hospital yesterday for blood tests ahead of my next chemotherapy session. Thanks to everyone for your love and support and to #TeamTanya for being the most amazing awesome people #friendshipgoals

This is it folks. Chemotherapy day 2! It’s not pretty today but here’s a photo from yesterday when it wasn’t looking so bad.

Thank you to everyone who’s donated and helped to allow me to take time off from working while I continue this sparring match with the big C.
