I am shaving my hair with Toni who has been diagnosed with stage 4 bowel and liver cancer. I hope to raise money at the same time to help.

My beautiful bestfriend Toni was in hospital during lockdown with liver issues. It was such a shock to us all what news was to follow.

Toni was diagnosed in May with stage 4 bowel cancer and secondary liver cancer. Toni is currently pregnant with her and husband Lukes second child and they have a 2 year old daughter Havana.

Once she has her baby in September she will then undergo surgery to remove 3 tumours on her liver. This is a truly invasive surgery for anyone to go through let alone a mother with a newborn baby. Once healed she will then undergo further surgery to remove her bowel tumour.

Toni will be spending a long time in hospital recovering from her surgerys. Luke will be needing to take time away from his busy plumbing business to look after their daughter and baby.

I have decided to shave my hair with Toni in the coming weeks. Toni is needing to leave her job and Luke will be needing to take a lot of time off to care for the kids while Toni is in hospital. I feel helpless and know that if some financial pressure can be eased it will be a small weight off their shoulders.

Toni and Luke really are such great friends to us and watching them go through such sad times really is heartbreaking.

Any donation no matter how small will really be gratefully recieved.
