Let’s help Hollie in her battle, like she has helped so many others

Main image

Less than a week ago brave Hollie received the devastating news that she had a rare, aggressive and advanced form of terminal breast cancer.

Hollies type of cancer is Triple Negative, only a slim 10 - 20% of cancers are this type. It won’t respond to normal therapy medicines and doctors are intensely interested in finding new medications to treat it. While studies are still trying to find out if certain medications can interfere with the growth of this cancer, it is unlikely to respond to normal therapy medicines. In a nutshell this type of cancer means treatment options are dramatically diminished.

The devastating prognosis is coupled with the intense financial strain this devastating disease causes. Financial costs of extra treatments, not to mention the simple cost of surviving from day to day with Hollie unable to work. While managing the symptoms and side effects of this horrible disease, the financial pressure is overwhelming.

Hollies has just celebrated her 30th birthday, her smile always lights up the room and she is so bright and bubbly - anyone you ask will tell you that! She’s made a difference in so many people’s lives over the years working at Orrs Pharmacy in Bream Bay, if not with help or advice then simply her gorgeous smile!

Now it’s time for us to give back to Hollie and raise as much as we can for our beautiful warrior. Please please please dig deep and donate whatever you can!
