In 2005 life was going well until I was given the devastating news that I had breast cancer,my whole world fell apart. I went through months of chemotherapy & radiotherapy as well as a mastectomy, whilst staying strong running my house for my husband and children .18 months later I had beaten this awful disease, had a reconstruction and tried my best to put behind me the most traumatising experience nobody should ever have to go through.
I celebrated every year cancer free for the next 11 years , taking part in race for life and raising money for others in this situation.
Almost 12 years to the day this horrific disease has hit me like a ton of bricks and returned but this time in my liver , I have been given the deverstating news that this time it's terminal cancer. This has shattered me and my family into a thousand pieces as I want to be here see Walter walk lois down the aisle , and Max taking his first steps into his career , and hold my children's children in my arms as I did them . I will not let this rip my family apart ,they have all been through so much already, and I will not loose hope , and I will not give up .
My family researched and found a treatment at the Imperial health centre , Hammersmith hospital in London after local health authorities had said there was no treatments available through them or Nhs . I was so elated when the consultant said he could help me none of us could believe it but I have now had it snatched back as it the consultant tried to get it on NHS but it can't be done it has to be private and unfortunatly this is a massive cost at such short notice .
All I have left to do in the next 4 weeks is to beg you all to please please try and help me , to try and raise this money to live my life to the fullest and to spend it with my family .
all my love Linda xxxx
