In July this year, the Boase family's world was turned upside down when Kelly had a 2cm lump biopsied from her breast. The results showed invasive ductal carcinoma - Breast cancer. On August 12th, Kelly turned 40. While this should have been a month of celebration for her milestone birthday, instead Kelly had to undergo a double mastectomy and had to take 5 weeks off work to undergo the operation as well as recovery. The pathology results of this procedure surprised them all with more the 11cm of tumours in her left breast. A second type of cancer was also found - Invasive lobular carcinoma. It has also found its way to her lymph nodes.
Her diagnosis at this stage is that she has Grade 3 high grade breast cancer. Anyone who knows Kel, knows how positive she has been through all of this and how hard she will fight it. But she needs our help. Her body is about to endure 15 rounds of Chemo (6 months worth) After Chemo she will then need 6 weeks of radiation therapy which is only available in Rockhampton, Bundaberg or Brisbane. So this is going to be costly for her young family.
We would really like Kelly to be able to take the much needed time off work and not have to worry about the financial burden this is going to have on her family. Any donation big or small would be greatly appreciated and will go to a very thankful lady and family.
Please dig deep for this beautiful lady and please keep her in your prayers as she kicks cancer in the ass.
