2020 has been a shocking year for everyone with all the things that happened in the world. But it got even worse for me and my mum Justyna when she has been diagnosed with an aggressive and invasive type of Breast Cancer 6 months ago.
With metastasis to her lymph nodes. She has been told the tumour is too large to be operable at first as it was 9cm. So she needs to start of with a treatment plan to try and decrease the size of the tumour before a surgery would even be
possible. Our lives have flipped upside down.
My dad sadly lost his battle to cancer in 2016 which hit me really hard,
and I want to do everything I can to help my mum beat this thing. She is everything I have left in this world.
It started with her being constantly tired and achy at the start of the year. It then continued with a swollen and painful breast, which after being seen by a doctor, she was referred for all sorts of scans and tests. Which took quite some time
due to covid and delays with hospital appointments and results. Which then lead to her being diagnosed with Cancer in May 2020. She was overwhelmed by the news and went into a state of depression. I was supporting her in all the ways
After some time, she started her treatment, which started with chemotherapy sessions. The chemos had lots of terrible side effects, she's been drained of all energy, extremely painful days but she knew she has to keep going and fighting
as she still has lots of plans in her life and wants to do everything she can to beat cancer, overcome this period in her life and just go back to her normal life.
She already had several chemo sessions which unfortunately haven't worked as the tumour is still the same size and she keeps feeling worse and worse.
We want to hit cancer with all we can, which includes both conventional and non-conventional treatments. Those treatments include stem cell treatments, immunotherapy , hyperthermia cancer treatments and vitamin infusions.
All of the treatments are expensive, and with myself only working part time because of being a carer for my mum and having to be at home. It all adds up to massive amounts which I can't handle. Its only the 2 of us against cancer, we only have each other. And this is why I need your help.
All donations would be extremely helpful.
No donation is too small. Every pound counts.
Thank you for taking your time to read our story.
I hope we can beat this! Thanks
