We are a group of friends who have grown up as a group 5. Going through the highs and the lows together, what ever has been thrown at us we have as a group dealt with it. We hold each other up, we back each other up but most of all we love each other unconditionally and that in itself is enough to get us through anything until now that is.....
A full hysterectomy followed. Our beautiful 28 year old friend had a major operation and we prayed, hard and long.
Our prayers were answered Sarah was cancer free. The relief was humongous, the happy tears were plentiful. Until Sarah had some pains, some tell tale terrifying signs it was back. A scan proved Sarah was right, it was back and yet again with a vengeance. 6 weeks of gruelling chemo and radiotherapy have taken away so much from her but our smiley, supportive, strong friend still carried on until yet again the leg pains started.
Sarah knew, instantly it was back. A month after her last all clear the cancer was back again but it had spread. Everywhere. Two words no one on this earth wants to hear was said "It's terminal"
The rest of the story is probably self explanatory.
Sarah isn't just a name she is a friend, a fiance but most of all a mother.
This is painful to write because we don't want to believe it but she is dying. A mother of five children aged between 1 and nearly 12 will not be here sometime soon.
If you've got this far thank you so much, the reason I ask you to read this because Sarah has one wish and that one wish o's to marry her fiance Kris. With whom she loves unconditionally unfortunately they are no longer in any financial position to make this possible even more so because of the time scales involved. Sarah loves Kris and wants to leave this life with him by her side known as his wife. They thought they had time. We all do don't we?
Please if you can spare a small amount of money to make this possible then we, Sarah's friends, her family and most of all her babies thank you unconditionally. We want Sarah to marry her sweetheart. We want their children to watch their mummy and daddy marry one another and just be... For the sort time she has on this earth we just want to fulfill this one wish.
Please help us.
As people who already donated can see we have had such an overwhelming response to our plea we have raised are target, can I just make clear why we have done it, the wedding is only 1 of Sarah wishes and we hope to make others come true but didn't expect the kindness and generosity of all you lovely lovely people. We have to set are target small as if we don't reach the target we can't get to the money because of this every time we hit it we will raise it a little more, let's make are beautiful best friends wishe come true
We just want to say thank you so, so much for all of your donations. Your kindness has astounded us and touched our hearts.
We have been so lucky and the overwhelming care and love shown to Sarah and her family is beyond what we ever expected.
We have well and truly hit our target for the wedding so us girls are planning a nice surprise for the family. They deserve it so much and each every one of you has made this possible.
Thank you, thank you, thank you xxxx
