On the 20th of December 2018 i was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer

I had to give up my job as i was due to start my first round of FEC-D chemo on the 4th of January 2019. I would not be able to work an go through this journey an look after my wee family

So we have gone from a 2 income family to 1.

Sadly with how hard chemo can be on the body my partner has had to take alot of time off work to care for the kids while ive ended up in hospital due to being neutropenic which means my white blood cell count gets very low due to my immune system not being able to fight off infection like a normal persons would

I have been lucky that ive been able to have my chemo here in hawkes bay but have had to travel alot to palmerston north for scans an MRI's etc

I have finally finished my last round of 6 chemos and am due to have surgery at the end of may to have a mastectomy done but will then need to go to palmerston north for 3weeks to have radiation done so i will be away from my two beautiful children an partner and he will need to take a fair bit of time off work to care for our children while i am away fighting the good fight

Use of funds

Funds raised will go towards medical costs living an travel costs
