Thank you for reading our story, a story that I never ever wanted to have to write… Our Louise – if you’ve met her, I am sure you will remember her – she is the most truly amazing person, a mother, sister, daughter, aunty, granddaughter, and friend. A smile – so big and so strong, an infectious distinctive laugh that can only bring you joy. Louise was diagnosed with grade 2B cervical cancer March 2016. Never missed a smear test. She visited her GP several times over several months – he dismissed her concerns as hormonal after the birth of baby Jude. Finally after a private scan, she was diagnosed and Chemo and radio therapy followed. Months of gruelling treatment she completed her treatment in July 2016, they weren’t talking treatable they were talking curable. The next hurdle arrived, after she discovered a lump in her neck while waiting for the results of her initial treatment – more CT scans, bloods test revealed our worst nightmare the cancer had spread and they had now said it was incurable. Shortly before Christmas she completed her next round of radiation. Things seemed to be looking up, then early in January she was told no progression and things looked stable. Louise’s condition has deteriorated she is now very poorly, There is progression with the tumor growth and now no other options available under the NHS. She had to undergo surgery for a Nephrostomy as the tumor was restricting her kidney function, and embolization to two arteries due to haemorraging. 37 years old, with three beautiful boys Joseph (12), Mateo (10) and baby Jude (22months) – she isn’t ready to leave her boys, and we are not ready either. We need your help. We have explored every treatment possibe - as any desperate family would and were introduced to a private treatment called immunotherapy – it is our last, and only hope. There is nothing else left. The treatment is expensive, but we will do anything we can to give her that chance, the chance of more life, more time, more love.
So far we have raised the funds to get Louise Started with her immunitherapy. Today she flew to Germany to a private clinic where she has started the initial treatments. They have ran in depth tests on her tumor and designed a treamtent plan to suit her needs. The almost £90K we have raised so far is enough to pay for her initial 7 days of treatment, and the next lot- 3 weeks later. She will then have two more follow up treatments again 3 weeks later but we need to raise the funds for these and her future treatment.
From being told 'there is nothing more we can do' which is what we have been told here in the Uk, to talk of possible remission in Germany, we need to fight this all the way...and we need your help...
Please, please share our page, we need to fundraise as much as we can to support Louise as quickly as possible.
