Help Theresa fight cancer

Donation protected
My beautiful 25 year old sister, Theresa was admitted to hospital in July with severe stomach and chest pain, after several tests they found tumours in her liver, still more tests followed that revealed cancer, a rare type called Carcinoid Cancer.

The cancer spread from her small bowel to her liver, which now contains 8 tumors, and her lymph node near her aortic artery. She has commenced hormone treatment to slow the growth of her tumours and hopefully prevent new ones, but we know this isn’t a cure. Her Oncologist has told her she will need treatment for the rest of her life, which means regular tests and scans to monitor the tumours, different cancer treatments as the cancer progresses, clinical trials as well as possible surgery.

Carcinoid cancer and neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) are very rare, so there is less funding than more common and popular cancers. This means Theresa will have to pay a portion of her regular treatment, surgery, scans. As well as travel costs as much of the test and treatment needed is in Sydney and Theresa lives 6 hours away in Coffs Harbour. Theresa is already struggling financially due to having to take time off work for tests and treatment.

She is only 25, and should have her whole life ahead of her, instead she has been told she will die with this cancer. Her life has been turned upside down and now she doesn’t know if she will ever have a family or a normal life.

Theresa wants to fight this, but we need help to pay for her treatment.

Any support you can provide to Theresa would be so deeply appreciated. You can learn more about NETs via the unicorn foundation.
