She had to immediately undergo chemotherapy as the cancer had more than doubled its size in only 2 weeks. After 2 different rounds of intense chemo, the next step was surgery. Dianne has undergone 10 hours of surgery which involved a double masectomy and DIEP flap reconstruction. The estimated recovery period is 12 weeks.
6 weeks into her recovery, Dianne will be starting 6 weeks of Radiotherapy treatment.
As if this hasn't been enough, during her few months of chemo, Dianne also lost 2 family members.
Due to her redundancy, centrelink have denied Dianne of any payments until August 2018. There have been some wonderful friends and family that have been able to help Dianne through this, including her sister moving back to WA and also a very generous donation of a car by close friends which enabled Dianne to get to her medical appointments. Others have been kind enough to prepare meals and also buy weekly groceries when she was too sick from the chemo to even move from the couch.
There is a very long, unknown road ahead, Dianne is unable to return to employment in the near future and therefore unable to maintain her mortgage repayments
Those that know Dianne know how much she has always put herself and her energy into helping others and also raising her 2 beautiful boys. She never hesitates when help is needed by others. It's our turn to help Dianne.
If you can donate any amount to help during this critical time we will be forever grateful
Let's not let this beautiful lady and her boys lose their house.
Thank you xx
