*UPDATE FOLLOWING OVERWHELMING RESPONSE*

As many of you are aware, unfortunately the NHS have now deemed Kirsty's condition as terminal and are offering palliative chemotherapy to shrink the tumour and help to maintain the cancer but not to cure it. We are still full of hope and will continue to seek alternative treatment for Kirsty as we will never give up this fight!

PLEASE NOTE- This is not something I want to include on the page however for donation purposes and with the generosity of the general public and also kirsty's family and friends, we would just like to add in the event of kirsty's death any funds raised will be used for Eva and Ella inline with Kirsty's wishes in her will. 


Heidlberg University Hospital in Germany which offers Ion Beam Therapy Treatment  which closes gaps in treatment options for patients suffering from previously untreatable tumors. Kirsty is going to start her treatment through the amazing NHS and will be on 3 lots of chemotherapy for the next 5 months which we are praying with all our might will treat both her primary and secondary cancer. However if this treatment is unsuccessful we are looking at getting Kirsty to Germany but this will need to be self funded and I really believe that is it within our reach and I know we can do this together! Once we are in receipt of Kirsty's medical notes we are going to look at as many alternatives that we can and send the notes off to anyone who we believe are in a position to help Kirsty to get better and depending upon costs and options available we can make a decision from there. 

Enquiries are being made at the moment to try and get a definite amount and a facebook page has been made so you can follow kirsty's Journey .   ***KIRSTY'S FIGHT***.

Thank you so so much and please use the hastag #savekirstymac to get this campaign viral! 


I have sat and thought so long about how to get this down on paper without sounding like we are desperate but the more I think about it we are, so I’m going to be bold and go straight in….. PLEASE HELP US!!!

Kirsty is a 26 year old mum of 2 beautiful girls Eva & Ella from Warrington and in January 2017 after her first routine smear test, Kirsty was given the devastating news that she had cervical cancer and had a full hysterectomy and with great relief was given the all clear.

Sadly in October 2017 Kirsty was told that her cancer had returned and this time endured 7 weeks of intense radiotherapy and chemotherapy. As with anything else in her life, Kirsty faced this news with bravery and determination beyond her years and thankfully she was given the all clear on the 27th April 2018.

With a heavy heart, just 7 weeks after being given the all clear and having just started to get a bit of normality back for herself and Eva & Ella, Kirsty has been informed that her cancer has returned for a 3rd time and is aggressive and has spread to her lymph nodes and is now classed as secondary cancer.

Due to the amount of time Kirsty has taken off work due to the first 2 cancer diagnosis, Kirsty is not able to access any further sick pay from her employer and now faces losing her home whilst she tries to fight cancer for the 3rd time. I have decided to set up this page to try and help Kirsty financially to keep up with all of her bills and to support her with any other costs she incurs whilst she is poorly and  so she can focus on getting better and also, her home has recently been adapted to support her daughter Eva who is aged five and has a severe disability and requires around the clock care. Kirsty needs as much stability as we can provide for her at the moment and to help carry the financial burden is the very least we can do.

Kirsty is still working to date and plans to do so as long as she is well enough which is just another testament to how strong she really is. We have worked out that her mortgage payments are £5,000 will be able to pay her mortgage for 12 months and I am hoping that we can exceed this to take the financial burden from her to support her financially in any way she needs. If anyone has any fundraising ideas please raise as much money as you can to support KMAC on this journey as I am sure there will be some dark times ahead and we all need to pull together and show her how loved she is and let her concentrate on getting better for her 2 girls.

The page will be updated with any events that are taking place and updates on Kirsty’s health and I am going to start this fundraiser off by shaving my hair once the page has reached £1000. The total may need to be extended throughout this journey as alternative treatment may also be something that needs to be considered depending on what the next few months hold.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this page and please donate anything that you can as together we can achieve so much.
