My mum was diagnosed with stage 4 Breast Cancer when I was 12 years old. She fought a brave and courageous battle for six and a half years overcoming hurdles that kept being pushed in her path. Chemotherapy, multiple surgeries, rounds of radiation, herceptin sessions, blood transfusions, antibody top ups she took it all in her stride while continuing to mother me and my brother and work as a Special Needs Assistant. Last April I lost her to this cruel disease and life since has changed forever.
By being an ambassador for the 100K in 30 Days I can do my part to try and ensure that no other young mothers are taken from their families so soon. Your donation will help form treatment plans that will be more bearable for families to go through and fund research to find a cure. This charity is so close to my heart and anything that you are able to donate is hugely appreciated and means so much. Thank you for your generosity ❤️❤️
