The kindest mummy your will ever meet who needs your help.....

Meet Danielle age 39, my dearest friend... a mum to 3 beautiful adorable girls age 6,9 and 15. She is the bravest lady who I admire so much.  Her journey began in 2015 when she was diagnosed with ‘inflammatory breast cancer’ which lead to a mastectomy, followed by chemo. Sadly another tumour was found so she had to have another mastectomy and then 15 lymph removes and then more chemo.

If that wasn’t enough to deal with during this time they discovered a whole in her heart which made surgery more difficult and an extra operation to try to close it.

Finally after a very hard couple of years, she got the all clear. They could finally plan her amazing white wedding to marry her man of her dreams...he’s her total soul mate and daddy to the girls. It was going to be a full celebration of life after the hard years of treatment and being unwell.

Tragically 3 months before her big wedding day in 2018 she was diagnosed with a brain tumour.  Full brain surgery  followed by Radiation .....it was so upsetting watching her having to recover yet again...Can you Imagine your hair falling out 3 weeks before your wedding day...so hard to deal with when you feel like your dream day is so close. Despite this, their wedding day was the best day ever...she looked totally gorgeous.

After a Full recovery, life goes on or so they thought. Can you imagine recovering again only to be told the tumour has come back ... it was devastating!

She travelled for Targeted Radiotherapy in Germany earlier this year. They had to use all their wedding money and savings. Afterwards things looked good and treatment was a success.

Move onto to now 2019 sadly not good news, Danielle is back in Germany for surgery this week as the tumour has come back and she has had full brain surgery again this week ...so hard to cope with so near to Christmas. They don’t deserve this, such a lovely family who should be together. But Time is ticking...

I ask for  your help so we can kick this C word! Her girls are her world, her husband her rock. He can’t work as he is self employed but he needs to be between Germany and home and with the children. Surgery is so expensive your help is so much appreciated x

Actually, Time is what she really needs and having this surgery will give her so much more time..time with her family for years ahead. I miss her in Germany and I am not sure if she will be home for Christmas to be with the girls, we all hope so. I would love to take them out to see her...just for the day xx I promise any donations will be used for her surgery bills and her recovery here. Please dig deep....

We need her home, to be with those beautiful girls and her gorgeous husband whose all love her to bits xxx
