Firstly thank you for taking the time to read my Go Fund Me page. The page has been set up by my sister, Michelle, but let me introduce myself.

My name is Kirsty and I am a 33year old wife and mother from Stockport. I have stage 4 Breast Cancer which has spread to my bones, liver, lungs and brain.

My cancer journey began in 2009 after being diagnosed with primary breast cancer. Fast forward 5 very tough years which have included, a double mastectomy, reconstruction and numerous chemo therapies to where I am now dealing with a third devastating diagnosis. Having triple negative cancer means that a lot of already scarcely available drugs will not work for me, so my treatment options are extremely limited. My cancer has been resistant to standard chemotherapy, however, I continue treatment because I am determined to fight this terrible disease to ensure I get every day I can with my beautiful family.
Just before Christmas I was offered an exciting new Immunotherapy drug on trial”
“Unfortunately, my hopes were dashed as during the screening checks they found that the cancer had spread to my brain, immediately excluding me from the trial. As the drug is yet to be licensed in Breast Cancer, my only other option is to access it is via private funding”

I will never be cured and my life expectancy is short. But continuing to live my life, whatever time I have left, is so important to my family and me. My son is just 8. My cancer has been around for most of his life but I’ve never let it stop me enjoying life with him, my focus has been on living, not my diagnosis.

I don’t have a bucket list filled with extravagant trips. Mine is pretty simple. I want to see him do his Holy Communion this year, to continue to cheer him on from the side of the football pitch. I want to celebrate more birthdays with him, with the right drug, this could be my reality.

The treatment is expected to cost a minimum £40,000 and is inclusive of the drug itself and it’s administration.
Thank you for taking the time to read this, every penny is gratefully received and will help me reach my goal.
