Help a badass mama beat brain cancer
Anne is back on the battlefield to destroy brain cancer. Let's come together and back her and Ben, like they've backed us a thousand times.Canterbury
This is my sister in love, Anne.
She is an incredible Mama to her 5yr old, Paisley, and 1yr old twins, Ralph and Knox. She's a passionate wife to my oldest brother, Ben.
All of her life, Anne has been feisty, passionate and notoriously stubborn. She says what she means, loves hard, and fights with every fiber of her being for those she loves. She changes lives all over and advocates for justice with wild tenacity.
In 2016, she was suddenly diagnosed with Stage 3 Breast Cancer. As a very fit, really healthy young mum, it smashed into her life, uninvited, like a violent, all consuming tsunami. She was told it was terminal, but man she kicked that idea to pieces. She was going to live!
And live she did. After the fight of her life and lots of support, she beat it! Fasting, health foods, infrared saunas, Vit C, surgery, chemo. She did everything she had to and beat it.
She's been completely healed for over 2 years, had miracle twins, and been the bomb mama and wife she is, managing twins and the world's sassiest 5 year old on little sleep, supporting hubby in his study and passions, and a strict lifestyle to keep the cancer away.
Sadly, about a month ago she found out that a breast tumour had made it's way to her brain (little asshole). So here she goes. Off to beat it again.
This time Ben is in his final year at uni and they can't get trauma cover from their insurance company.
I know so many of you want to help, so here is a tangible way that will impact them where they need it. As a community we need to come together and back her and Ben, like they've backed us a thousand times before.
Here's an update in her own words
Thought I better update, since people are asking.
On Tuesday I’m having surgery to remove a breast expander I have in that has a magnet in it as they can’t get the MRI of my brain that they need to do brain surgery. If the MRI shows just the 2 tumours they will operate, if it shows more cancer they won’t. (I get put in the “too dead” box🤣)
As soon as I am recovered “enough” they will do the brain surgery😓.
The breast surgery is a big surgery, then I get to do Brain surgery and have my head cut open in 2 places and then do Chemo! Not super excited to be honest😆
I just wanted to say that all of your support, kind messages, gifts and help means so much to me during this crazy hard time. Your love and kindness strengthens and helps energise me to continue fighting for my healing.
They are trying to extend my life a bit more for me, but I’m planning on healing this bit of brain cancer right up. 😄
I really appreciate your love and prayers as I head into this fight for my life (again🤦🏼♀️). Also for my poor babies as they struggle over the next few months.
Love to you all
Let's help her beat this!
