Given by 147 generous donors in around 4 months

Please help us in supporting our dear friend Angela in her fight against cancer.


Please help us in supporting our dear friend Angela in her fight against cancer.

Two weeks ago, Angela was diagnosed with Stage 3, triple negative breast cancer. Despite feeling blindsided by this news, she has been so incredibly brave and strong and is determined to beat cancer.

Angela is an amazing single mother to her three young sons and works hard to support herself and her boys.

She is an incredibly kind and generous friend who is always the first to help her friends with anything they need.

We want Ange to feel the same support she has selflessly given to so many others.

Any donations will go towards an unfunded treatment Ange has been offered- Pembrolizumab- Keytruda, at a cost of $100,000. This treatment will give Ange the best possible chance of the cancer not returning.

In addition, we would like Ange to be able to focus on her treatment and spending time with her boys without the financial stress of losing her income while unable to work.

Ange starts round 1 of chemotherapy this week, and it is unlikely she will be able to work during these 20 weeks of chemotherapy.

Following chemotherapy, she will then need to have surgery and radiation.

Any contributions will be hugely appreciated by Ange her boys, and her friends and family, thank you so much.

To Update You On Some Changes  2 July 2024

Hi everyone, there have been some unexpected changes which we wanted to update you on. Unfortunately, Ange has been struggling with her health as a result of chemo and the immunotherapy treatments. She has had multiple hospital admissions due to almost zero immunity which create a whole range of problems. Her oncologist has directed her to stop the immunotherapy treatments (unfunded) as they are making her too unwell. Although this is not what Ange has wanted, there are positive results so far with chemo which is really great news. A BIG thank you to all those who have and continue to donate to this page. Although the treatment funds are no longer needed, this money goes towards the rising cost of living for Ange and her sons, holistic treatments and generally making life a little less stressful due to not being well enough to work. There is still a long way to go-halfway through chemo, then surgery and radiation. Ange continues this fierce battle to wellness for herself and her beautiful sons. Thank you again everyone I know Ange has been blown away by the genuine kindness of you all.
