Hi, I’m Leane Flynn, I was diagnosed with Stage 3C Advanced Serous Ovarian Cancer in 2017. We very quickly discovered that the cancer was incurable and that I will only live as long as the treatments work. I’ve had 9 different chemotherapy treatments during the past 6 years, but the cancer grows resistant to the chemo and the cancer comes back.
In 2021 I ended up spending 3 months in hospital with the cancer growing around my bowel. After 5 surgeries in 6 days I was left with a stoma bag and told I had days left to live. We planned my funeral and I was sent home to die.
Miraculously, I managed to slowly recover and I have been on chemotherapy ever since.
Unfortunately, the chemo has stopped working and I’m now faced with the prospect of either finding a trial or buying medications from overseas to prolong my life. I’m desperate to live to spend more time with my husband and see my 3 beautiful daughters grow into the amazing woman I know they will become.
I’ve never asked for money, in fact I have worked tirelessly as an Ambassador for the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation (OCRF), to raise funds and awareness for all women with ovarian cancer, but as my life is becoming increasingly precarious, any funds you feel comfortable donating would be greatly appreciated.
These funds can help me spend quality time with the people I love and hopefully fund any treatments that are necessary.
As always, my thanks and gratitude for your love and support is overwhelming.
