Help Holly fight for her life

Holly is a young mother of three beautiful girls aged 4 , 6 and 8 .Holly began suffering from an earache , over the course of two weeks she became unable to get out of bed , she became very weak , she was in a great deal of pain and started to lose feeling to one side of her face , she was taken by ambulance to hospital and underwent a number of tests , By lunch time she had been transported to the intensive care unit at wollongong hospital , She has been diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia , a very aggressive blood cancer , on arrival to ICU her good blood cells were at just 0.01% and and her damaged white blood cell count was off the charts , she underwent numerous blood transfu sions and cleansing of the white blood cells . Her ear infection had also now become severe and spread to her brain , this also caused the loss of feeling to her face , she has since had a procedure where through a hole drilled in her skull they removed as much of the infection as possible and left a tube from the infection site so any fluid build up could drain . Holly has lost her vision and cant recognise the face of the people around her as well as the loss of hearing in the infected ear . She has now started heavy chemotherapy that she will receive for 24 hours a day for four weeks in a row followed by one weeks rest , this cycle will continue for up to two years , she is heavily sedated and breathing through a tube at this point in time as the chemo is causing fluid build up in her lungs and some clotting has been identified . She is showing signs if improvement and we remain positive , We are looking into a number of complimentary that may assist with positive results and also help to counter some of the negative side effects of the chemo , and hopefully down the track we might be able to find an alternative treatment that is not so hard on her . We were told that this is most likely the result of chemotherapy and radiotherapy that Holly received four years earlier after having surgery to remove a tumor from her cervix that was found when giving birth to her youngest child . She beat the cancer up til this point and she will give it her all to do it again . Her children just want there mum to come home .
We are now added with the extra financial stress of everything surrounding this situation . We want to raise funds so that the costs associated with complementary treatments , or alternative treatments and anything that will help her to have some quality of life during this treatment can be done without delay , as well as the cost of travel and parking daily for up to two years . Please help her if you can , we need your help to get her whatever she needs in order to beat this and come home to her family where she is loved .
