What a survivor!  3 January 2018

Yvonne is so determined to be there for her boy.... she has confounded all predictions and is stronger than ever. She has had surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy with aplomb and has responded to these treatments. Her ⭐️ turn on 7 sharp was fantastic and was incredibly inspirational. Yvonne is going to have more chemotherapeutic agents this year and will need time off to recover... donations will allow her days off work to recover.
