PLEASE!! Give a little to help give our Mum, Wife, Nana, Aunty, Friend, Sister Carolyn, Carol 💕❤️ MORE TIME!
Help give our beautiful amazing mum, wife, aunty, friend, sister more time! She needs our help and we need your help! Please xAuckland
Mum has given her whole life to being there for others both emotionally and financially wherever she can - even if she can't really afford it .. well now it's our turn to look after her and we need your help.
My beautiful amazing Mum has been diagnosed with Stage 3C Advanced and aggressive breast and incurable lung cancer. She has been given 6-9 months without treatment or 12 months with chemo (funded by government) however this just isn't long enough ... we want and need more time with Mum - she deserves more time! Unfortunately because she has two primary cancers though no drug trial will take her on.
There is however an alternative immunotherapy drug (non funded) that costs $70,000 which is $10.000 per treatment!!! This will give her more time if started from the beginning of her treatment which is to start in the next couple of weeks ... so we don't have much time to try but god damn it we will try!!!!
PLEASE no matter what the size we will absolutely appreciate anything you can spare to help give mum more time.
If we are unable to raise the $70,000 for the treatment we will be devastated, whatever money that is raised will be put towards her well-being and quality of time she has left.
Because time is so crucial to get started, please please please give a little to give mum more time!! xx

Use of funds
Will be used to start expensive 'unfunded' immunotherapy treatment (Keytruda) together with Chemo from the beginning of her treatment to give her more time in this life with us. x
Hi guys, sorry it's been a while .. but I have a positive update for you all.
Mum got the results of her scan back on Monday and the CT scan looks really good, the breast lump has shrunk to the point where we should have it looked at again by the breast surgeons. They may want her to just complete the chemo part of the course before doing any surgery, but we should begin that process now.
Have managed to arrange her weekly Greenlane appointments changed to online or over the phone with her actual oncologist for the next visit rather than the young doctor relaying info from the hospital. Eliminates one extra appointment / hospital visit for her.
Overall, her oncologist is seeing a really encouraging response to treatment, so they now have the opportunity to make the next set of plans.
Other than getting frustrated now and then that she can't do more, Mum is actually doing great considering - handling everything like a pro, even rocking her beanies and shaven head. She has lost a lot of weight though and needs to eat more meat and veges and drink more water to flush her kidneys
All very positive overall though. Bloody proud of her - lets go mum!!! X
