This is lady I was fundraising for to help pay towards her cancer treatment. Well yesterday the beautiful Jennifer sadly lost her life suddenly, and left behind her 5 beautiful children, her partner Simon, and her family and friends.
Jennifer died from cervical cancer but was misdiagnosed in 2019 which could of been vital to her survival chances. She was failed by the very doctors who should of helped her. We can’t stress enough how important it is to go for your smears and to keep fighting if you know something is not right with your body, Jen went for her routine smear but they couldn’t carry it out because she was bleeding, she went again 2 weeks later and again she was bleeding so they referred her to gynaecology. While waiting on her appointment Jennifer had a huge blood loss and was taken to hospital. There they scanned her and said she had ovarian cysts and sent her home with antibiotics. 6 month later she had another huge blood loss and ended up in hospital again. Another doctor scanned her and compared it to the first scan and recognised there was more that a cyst and it was clearly visible on the first scan and had been missed. From there Jennifer fought with every bit of strength she had, she had surgery to try and get rid of the cancer, she lost her bowel, bladder and had a full hysterectomy. Aswel as daily chemotherapy and radiotherapy. While recovering from that, She became really unwell again and doctors found she An aneurysm on her main artery and it had ruptured. She then a spent a lot of time in hospital 78 days trying to recover. She was sent home not knowing it would then take her. These poor babies and Simon now have to learn to live without her.
i would really like to help this family towards the costs of the funeral, with simon having to raise their 5 kids on his own and so close to Christmas and this happening so suddenly and unexpectedly, I think a few pound each off our brilliant community we can help relieve some of the sadness, stress and pressure they must be feeling. And also spread awareness on cervical cancer and hope one day by sharing her story she might help save someone else’s life ❤️
