This funding page is being set up by myself to raise the much needed funding for Gemma.
They say money can't buy health but it's not the case. Gemma has a very rare form of Cancer called Sarcoma and she needs specialist care, private and promptly.
I want to get her to someone who specialises specifically in the area of Sarcoma Cancer and can point us in the direction of the treatment that she so desperately needs as well as maybe drugs that are not available to herself due to the "postcode lottery" of funding that's available on the NHS.
I have decided to stand up and try to reach as many as I can for funding to help my best friend find a cure! I'm going to tell you a bit of Gemma's story;
She had symptoms starting in early 2015 when she was 31 years old. She repeatedly went to her GP and they just kept sending her home with a prescription for pain medication. A few months later she was finally sent for an X-ray but at this point it didn't show anything that could lead to the shocking diagnosis she would not long later receive.
In the October after being admitted into hospital for a stomach bleed due to the overuse of pain medication, an X-ray preformed showed a mass which was a tumour in her right arm.
The biopsies were preformed promptly and it was discovered that it was this rare type of bone cancer called Sarcoma.
At this stage the Cancer had spread and Gemma received the shocking and sudden news that she only had an average time of 12 months to live.
Gemma went on to receive treatment from January 2016-September 2016 which left her with 3rd degree burns under her arm from Radiotherapy sessions and Chemotherapy was started not long after.
Thankfully through all of her numerous complications in treatment Gemma has remained stable and outlived her 12 month diagnosis.
The cancer at the last scan had cleared a great deal but we are not out of the woods yet.
Gemma deserves this!
Shes come this far past her original 12 month prognosis that she deserves this chance to find a cure!
Please help me raise these funds, any donation is more than appreciated!
Thank you to all <3
