Angie Doherty has been fighting stage 4 bowel cancer since July 2017. Many treatments have been provided but unfortunately the Cancer has spread and is having a major impact on Angie's quality of life. Following a Laparoscopy carried out on Monday in the Mater Hospital it was identified that many tumors have grown in Angie's lower abdomen and some have attaching to the vital organs.
Radiotherapy and Chemotherapy are not an option at the moment as Angie is very weak.
Currently Angie's husband Liam is providing vital support to his wife during this uncertain time. Due to this Liam is unable to work and support his family. Since 2017 family members were supporting Angie and Liam financially when required, but unfortunately this resource is no longer an option.
Angie hopes to undergo surgery to improve her quality of life in the coming days. At present due to the position of the tumor she is unable to eat and gain the necessary strength to avail of any other treatment options. Angie will need assistance and support prior to and following surgery which will be provided by her husband Liam.
Angie wishes to have testing with Oncologica who are based in the UK, they would take a sample to increase her changes in finding out her best options for treatment which aims to prolong her life. This costs 2000 euro. Any donations to assist Angie, Liam and their family would be greatly appreciated.
Angie, Liam and family are extremely grateful for every single person who has offered support and best wishes to date.
