Hi I am Charley, I am 34 and a mummy to Aurelia who is now 18 months. Back in January I was told I only had a few months to live. I had cancer. 

I was devastated and just not ready to die. My little girl needed me and the thought of not seeing her grow up was too much. I spent two months in hospital and the doctors tried to remove the main tumour, however, due to its size and location they were unable to do so. This is when I was told I would be lucky to make it home and would be dead by March. 

The rare form of cancer I am suffering from is so rare it won't identify itself, it spread rapidly through my vital organs, with tumours currently in my stomach, liver and peritoneum. 

In February, the doctors allowed me a course of chemotherapy. Although the odds were against me, I wanted a chance. To date I have endured six rounds of chemotherapy. The chemotherapy I have been prescribed is so aggressive, I will only be able to have one more round due to the effects on my heart. 

It has had positive results and although it has made me really sick, the main tumor has shrunk. The doctors believe this is temporary and the cancer will get clever and start to grow again. Which is why I am desperate to try immunotherapy,  this, I know, is my last chance.

As my cancer is so rare, the NHS won't cover the cost of immunotherapy, because they don't think the outcome will be positive.  But my incredible friends and family refuse to give up and have all volunteered to help me fundraise for the huge cost of the groundbreaking treatment, which has been hailed as the potential cure for many other cancers and possibly mine.

I am slowly starting to feel better, after being rushed in to hospital on Friday. Nothing major in the grand scheme of things, I had managed to get an infection through the line I have permentaly attahched to feed me with chemotherapy and as such my infection fighting cells, my white blood cells were pretty much none existent. They removed the line and have kept me on antibiotics over the weekend. I have had some blood taken this morning so dependant on the results I should be able to go home tomorrow or the day after.
The worst thing has been, no internet access to see all your lovely messages of support, but a little bit of magic from one of my besties Lucy Deacon and I am back online!

Thank you everyone for all the love xxxxx
