It's painful for everyone yet we need to be proactive. We want to make the next few months as fun as possible for her and get her to cross things off her bucket list. We need all the contacts we can get and the money to fulfill her wishes. Whether it's helping her meet her idols and going to a film set, getting her on to a course of taxidermy or getting tickets to see Hamilton we want her to have as much fun in this tragic time as is possible. She would love to go to Japan so that's the goal. Get in touch if you can help, in any way. ([email redacted].uk)
I love you wifey.
Vicki tells it best herself:
"My diagnosis of SCCOHT back in October always came with a terrible prognosis, so I had already prepared myself for the worst, whilst being super positive! It's rare, incredibly aggressive and there's not much hope when it comes back.
This time we can't operate. Rather than a large tumour like last time, the cancer is now in clusters covering my peritoneum - the lining holding my organs together.
Unfortunatley, this means it is terminal. Doctors have to tell you the worst, miracles can happen, and I'm keeping a positive attitude, but we need to be realistic.
I can't even begin to describe how weird it is to be writing this!
So... I start a new chemotherapy next Wednesday 22nd. This is to prolong my life, it will not completely rid of the cancer.
Luckily, it'll only be 6 sessions in total, every 3 weeks. Not like the horrendous 18 I had to sit through before.
Once we finish treatment around Christmas, it's not likely there'll be any more options for me. I could be around for a good few months after, we just don't know right now. ♀️
Until then, life will go on as normal! So let's hang out!
Words cannot express how much I appreciate everyones love & support over the last 10 months."
Please help. She has so many people that love her. She's only 32 but let's make all her dreams come true xxxx
