On the 1st of August 2019, our beautiful Nakita was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer (waiting on test results for type). The cancer is on her liver and in her spine.

6 weeks before this diagnosis the only symptoms nakita had was a sore back, however further testing and surgery discovered something so much worse!!

Nakita has a 3 1/2 year old son, is newly married and is also 15 weeks pregnant. Nakita has a passion for fitness and general wellbeing and this led to her undertaking study in nutritional medicine.

We, being her friends and family are hoping to raise money to help support Nakita with the associated costs with such an illness, and to also support her family, as her husband Jared will need to take time off work to provide support throughout her journey.

So Nakita started chemotherapy yesterday afternoon she has had 1 dose that went for an hour then a small break then another dose that went for 6 hours and she is currently on her 3rd dose that goes for 24 hours and because of how aggressive the cancer is they're going to give her another 24 hour dose after this one. She has pretty much just been sleeping all day as the chemo seems to just be draining all of her energy so far. FIngers crossed it has a great effect and works well with her body to kick this fucking cancers arse her right hand still doesn't have to much movement because the cancer had spread further through her spine in the two weeks we were waiting after the operation. The fundraiser is about to end I think today or tomorrow so if you wanted to donate and haven't yet now is your chance and if you don't want to or can't donate that's fine with us just keep sharing and sending those positive thoughts and prayers for those who pray. Big thank you to everyone for all the support we have received so far . Thanks again we love you guys ❤❤❤

Morning,

Just coming in with an update.

Over the past week the condition in my right hand and arm has deteriorated. I have lost complete feeling again and can not grip anything. After another scan to see the cause, it showed the cancer had already spread in 2 weeks causing 2 new fractures in my spine.

We may be looking at another more intense surgery on my spine but are waiting to see how the cancer responds to my first radiotherapy session that I had on Friday.

This Monday I will also be starting my first Chemo session as the cancer is so aggressive they don't want to wait any longer.

I have had a rollercoaster week in terms if pain and how I feel. Every hour things change but trying to stay positive every step of the way.

Over the weekend Nakita underwent emergency bowel surgery to remove the tumour in her large intestine. Surgery went well and is recovering nicely. We are now waiting on testing of the tumour to see exactly what we are dealing with for best course treatments. In about a week she will however be starting her first round of Chemotherapy to get it all underway.

Just a quick update for everyone today we had to make the hardest decision of our lives whether to risk Nakitas health/life and risk having a premature birth of our beautiful baby or the unthinkable to terminate our baby so Nakitas body can fight off this horrible cancer. We decided after long thought that it is more important for Nakita to have her health through this battle with this horrible disease and that both Byron and myself both need her in our lives. Byron needs his mum and I need my wife so the decision was mad to terminate our baby we were offered an ultrasound and we said yes it turns out after a lot of debate Nakita was right and it was a beautiful little girl and nakita had a name on her mind for a boy or girl so today we said goodbye to our beautiful unborn daughter Luna James if there is a better place after we pass I hope she enjoys it. Until we meet again my beautiful daughter mum and dad love you xX
