Sarahs Medical Expenses

Hi guys, My name is Sarah and I have breast cancer. While on holidays for my 30th birthday in September 2016, my partner found a lump on my right breast. After having it all checked out, we were told I had a high grade malignant carcinoma and I needed surgery to have the lump removed ASAP. Once the lump was removed they conducted the pathology on the lump and concluded it was a HER2+ cancer, a very aggressive hormonal cancer. I could have cancer in by body anywhere and it didn't need my lymphnodes to travel through my body. I would need 12 weeks of weekly chemotherapy (Pacletaxel) and 12 months of chemo (Herceptin) every 3 weeks and i needed to start ASAP. I am yet to start my family so I've had to have my eggs removed too, as there is a chance I may go into early menopause from the chemo.

When I was 28 I started my own podiatry business, its a new business, with no strong financial background. As I am the sole podiatrist in the company, if I don't work, I don't get paid. Becoming sick is extremely expensive, especially for a young, assumingly healthy woman who has no income protection. What 30 year old with no family history of cancer would expect a thing like this to happen.  My parents have been a massive financial support, though I feel extremely guilty for spending a lot of their hard earned money that they should be using to retire, not on their daughters health expenses. My parents are both in their 60s and work very hard already. I generally don't like asking for help (who does), but I would love if you guys could help me pay my parents back for everything they have done for me and to help with future health expences that will be coming my way. Any donation will help immensely, particualrly if or when I need to have time off work during my treatment.

I will be forever grateful for any kind of help or donation thrown my way. You can follow my story and progress on my faceook page 'But I'm only 30' Thank you guys so much. x

Hi guys I am really sorry for the comment that you see on your bank statement. It's completely false and I have no idea how it got there. I have never been asked to write a phrase that shows up on your account statements and if I have, I absolutely did not write what has been sent to you. Again I apologise and I have contacted go fund me to correct this error

Hey guy, I am so overwhelmed by the initial response I received when I started this campaign. I am so grateful to everyone's generosity.

Just to update you. I am still doing well. I made it to 2017 with hair... but alas, the 1st on January 2017 is when my hair finally decided to fall out. I shaved it on the 2nd. One day before my 4th round of chemo. But I'm totally rocking the bald head look! I'll be sad when the last short hairs come out and I'll look like a complete Crome Dome.

I hope everyone had a good Christmas and New Years and thank you all again for your generosity! Xx
