Thanks for visiting my fundraising page and this is my story as to why I am choosing to walk 10,000 steps a day throughout March.
In 2015, my beautiful, kind sister Louise was diagnosed with Primary Breast Cancer. She went through gruelling chemotherapy, hair loss, radiotherapy, sickness, hysterectomy and a Lumpectomy. In 2020 my sister was given the 5 year all clear and we were all over the moon.
In September 2020, my sister went to get a scan due to severe back pain, which had been going on for several months beforehand and had become unbearably painful for her. This was when we were given the shocking news that unfortunately the cancer had spread and she was diagnosed with Secondary Breast Cancer on her bones.
This is now something that my sister has to live with. Like the trooper she is, she is fighting it with every stubborn bone in her body. With the support of Macmillian, her breast cancer nurses, Oncologist, family and friends we are all in this fight together.
This is close to my heart and without the research in place, these new developments in treatment to help people live a normal life with Cancer wouldn't be possible.
Thank you for taking the time to read my story and I understand how things are a strain for everyone at the moment so any donation big or small really is appreciated.
Stephanie (for my best friend and sister Louise)
