Hi my name is Thea, I am 23 months old. On the 7th June 2016 I was born into this beautiful world and found myself lying on the warm tummy of my loving Mummy. But very soon after I was born, my Mummy was rushed away for what's called a biopsy. It turns out that when I was in my mum's tummy, some bad cells had developed and grown very quickly in her breast, but being pregnant with me masked the signs and delayed the doctors figuring out what the problem was. 
My mummy was diagnosed with a rapidly progressive Triple Negative Breast Cancer and she has been fighting the bad cells every day since.

My mummy's name is Michelle, she was 37 years old when I was born. She had 2 other babies before me. I have a big brother called Callum who is 6, and another brother Rylan who is 4, our Mummy loves us all very much, but sometimes I think I am the favourite :-)

Our mummy has been fighting the bad cells for almost 2 years, she has had special medicine for nearly 18 months, radiotherapy which gave her a bad sun burn, and over 4 operations. We have visited her alot in hospital, my Daddy says he knows all the short cuts.

Despite my mummy having so much special medicine, the bad cells keep coming back and earlier this year she was diagnosed with Metastatic Triple Negative Breast Cancer. We are all way too young to even know what that even means but deep down I know our mummy will be ok. I want my mummy to see me start school, I want my mummy to teach me how to ride a bike, I want my mummy to cuddle me when I hurt myself...

My mummy's body has been through alot and has taken all the Chemotherapy (that's a big word for me) it can handle, so her last option is to try Immunotherapy which could help her body fight off the bad cells. This type of medicine is super expensive so we are trying to raise the money so she can have it and get better.

Please help my mummy to get better by supporting "Fight For Our Mummy", I don't want her to go to heaven, I need her, I love her and she has to stay down here with me, my brothers and my Daddy, we love her too much and we never want to say goodbye. 

Lots of Love Thea, Callum & Rylan

Michelle’s Journey:

-Diagnosed TNBC left breast June 2016.
-Commenced neoadjuvant chemotherapy June 2016.
-1st mastectomy and full node clearance Dec 2016.
-Commenced adjuvant chemotherapy Jan 2017.
-Local recurrence surgery July 2017. 
-Commenced radiotherapy Aug 2017. 
-Completed radiotherapy Sep 2017. 
-Diagnosed TNBC right breast Nov 2017.
-2nd mastectomy and full node clearance Dec 2017.
-Commenced adjuvant chemotherapy Jan 2018.
-Surgical biopsy Jan 2018.
-Diagnosed MTNBC Jan 2018.

Michelle continues with chemotherapy today but her body has taken just about enough.

Immunotherapy is her next and best option to hopefully contain the skin mets and stop it spreading further to her organs. 

Michelle is an inspiration to all that meet her, she has been through all this while loving and nurturing a new born baby and her 2 young boys. Everyone that knows Michelle would agree she is the happiest most positive person you could meet.

“If anyone can beat this Michelle can”.

All funds raised will be used towards Immunotherapy treatment for Michelle and ongoing medical costs.

Unfortunately we too lost what was such a help for our family during a time of need. We are still in need and now dependent on the generosity of family and friends to help with childcare during my treatment which can be difficult to organise logistically and unsettling for our children. My husband has had to use much of his sick & carers leave leaving him stretched and not meeting work commitments. Government need to revise this situation.

We had the pleasure of attending the fightonthebeaches Christmas in July 2018 ball in aid of cancer research this weekend. Such a fun night with my hubby & friends. Having planned to go last year but was too sick at the time it was extra special to make it this year and get the chance to feel glamorous & have a dance with Darren!

Have had 2 rounds of immunotherapy so far and feeling great
