Please help raise funds to go toward a much needed cancer treatment for my mum.

Hi there, my mum's name is Debbie. She is my best friend and the heart and soul of my family. In August 2016 our mum was diagnosed with stage 4 metastatic incurable breast cancer. This cancer has made its way throughout her body and into her bones, this unfortunately means that it will take her life at some point in the future. My mum has raised my sister and I by herself for many years and in October 2017 my sister, Monica, had spinal surgery. Unfortunately this went very wrong and she is currently undergoing intense rehabilitation. It pains me to think that my mum won't be able to see my sister recovered.

This treatment will allow my mum's body to not be able to build up a resistance to the cancer treatment she is currently receiving. It will prolong her life by 10 months. Please help us have this extra time with her.

Use of funds

Unfortunately this treatment is very expensive and so I'm reaching out to to you lovely people to please please help! These funds will be going toward the new cancer treatment which stops the body growing up a resistance to hormonal cancer treatments. It is a 20 month treatment that costs $6k a month. Please feel free to donate or share. I am very very thankful for the time you've taken to read this and your generosity.
