Courtney was sent straight to ER. This is where the long hard journey began. Endless scans and tests, feeding tubes and 14 days in hospital, Courtney was diagnosed with a malignant Neuroendocrine tumor . This was late in April. She was sent home with a feeding tube in. She was in and out of hospital for scans and tests. They transferred her to Fiona Stanley hospital to see an Oncologist. He started her on chemo straight away. During this time Courtney has had early onset of menopause to try and save her ovaries so she can possibly have children later in life, lost her gorgeous hair, constantly sick and weak, couldn't eat, homebound due to infections and lost 32kgs.
After 5 cycles of chemo (2 IV, 3 oral) the tumor had grown and spread to 4 lymph nodes (that was after 2 cycles) and after the 5 cycles the tumor is now the size of a football and has spread to lymph nodes in her pelvis and the lymph nodes around her liver have grown. She is currently on medication to slow the growth of the tumor. In the next week she goes for scans to start a trial for SIRT (selective internal radiation therapy).
Courtney is the most caring, amazing person. She would do anything for those she loves so I want to give back to her by raising money to help her to do some of the awesome things she wants to do. A few things off her bucket list which i would love to help with are to travel around Australia, go hot air ballooning and to get more wigs!
Courtney is just 24 years old! So please please let's help her to do a few awesome wishes to take some edge off what she is going through!
