Kelleigh Burkett is a gorgeous young Mum with Metastatic Breast Cancer and she needs your help to access treatment overseas.

Cancer

After a double mastectomy, chemotherapy and radiation, Kelleigh had remained cancer-free until 12 months ago.

With the cancer now in her brain, spine and liver, the 42-year-old has just made the very tough decision to move to Sydney for an indefinite period, away from her husband and three young daughters, so she can take part in a ground breaking worldwide drug trial.

The trial could give Kelleigh another few years to spend with her three beautiful girls and her husband. But the family needs your help to cover the costs of running two households on either side of the Tasman for now, and to ensure Kelleigh's daughters (5, 8 and 10) can visit their mum while she is living in Australia.

This is her last resort to "survive" but Kelleigh's participation could also change the future for all with breast cancer. Imagine that!

As Kelleigh says: “The reason I am doing this trial is not only to give myself some more time but to give hope to all the women and men living with terminal breast cancer that someday we will have more targeted therapy to prolong our lives."

Please donate generously to enable Kelleigh to live in Australia while she takes part in this trial. Your donation will keep this family together and strong, and make a world of difference.

    I committed to a 100 Day of Fitness Challenge where if I missed a day of getting at least 30 minutes exercise in I would donate $20 to a charity of my choice. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your lovely family as you journey and fight through. Being a cancer survivor myself this is a cause very close to home and my heart.
