2022 and Covid lockdowns were finally over.  This was going to be a great year.

My son was getting married in February and my youngest daughter was expecting twins in October.  Life was good and I was soon to be a grandma for the first time.

In April I had some issues with lower abdominal pain, constipation and weight loss.  I visited my GP in May and after several tests was referred to a colorectal surgeon due to thickening of the omentim.  I had to wait until August for an appointment.

During this time I found out my son and his wife were also expecting a baby in January 2023.

After waiting so long for the appointment followed by another round of testing I was diagnosed with high grade ovarian cancer. I have since completed six rounds of chemotherapy which have been successful but not without difficulties along the way.  

The next part of the treatment is a two year course of Olaparib which unfortunately, because my genetic testing confirmed I have the rare BRIP 1 mutation and not the BRACA mutation, will not be government funded.  The total cost of the medication over the two years is $168,000.00.

I am asking for support to raise funds to help cover the cost of my ongoing treatment.  I have a loving and close family, my husband, my two daughters, my son and three beautiful grandbabies.  It is my wish to get well so I can be a part of their lives for as long as possible.  Your contribution will be so gratefully appreciated.
