It breaks my heart a little bit more than it already is saying this, but my amazing, gorgeous, courageous wife Sally Jayne drifted away to a better and more peaceful place on the 8th April, whilst me and her mum squeezed her with immense amounts of love. Whilst the treatment was working, her kidneys couldn't handle anymore. The doctors and nurses here tried absolutely everything and have been brilliant.
Never have I met before or will I meet again anyone so amazing, my soulmate, penguin 🐧, the absolute love of my life, and the perfect mum to our beautiful and strong kids. She'll live in them forever.
Unless anyone would like to stipulate otherwise, all current/future fund will be split 50/50 between covering our treatment debts of around £70k and the So Sally Can Wait trust/charity - I was very reluctant to accept the 50% towards debt however everyone seems to think this is the right thing to do. Once the debts are cleared I will let you all know and 100% of funds will go into the charity to help prevent other, young folks facing the same fate as my amazing, gorgeous & unbelievably courageous wife Sally Jayne which will be run by myself and other family & friends, and will hopefully continue to have the support of you fantastic folks. Thank you x
Sleep tight babe, you deserve a rest, and we'll have a chat later, love you infinitely forever and a day, your penguin xxx
As you probably expected the reason I've put this page on here is not a very pleasant one and is basically out of desperation. I need your help to keep my wife (and the mum of my 4 young children - George 2, Maisy 6, Adam 11 and Ryan 12) alive.
We cannot imagine life without her and in fact my youngest son does not even understand this.
My amazing & gorgeous wife, Sally, 32, was last year diagnosed with Stage 4 bowel cancer, extremely rare at such a young age. She had surgery to remove a foot of her bowel along with the huge tumour, unfortunately this still left her with widespread disease in her liver, both lungs, lymph nodes and peritoneum.
Despite this and living with a colostomy, so far around 20 gruelling sessions of chemotherapy, 2 lots of ablation, enough supplements to cause her to rattle, intense pain and sickness along with shocking tiredness my unbreakable wife still battles on! I am so very proud of her.
We have funded various treatments ourselves at around £25k and have had some fantastic help from fundraisers who have so far raised around £23,000 for us. Unfortunately this only covers the initial tumour testing for suitability of the treatment we are looking at.
The Hallwang clinic in Germany (recently Emmerdale actress Leah Bracknell commenced treatment here) offers cutting edge combined treatment including low dose chemotherapies, immunotherapies, dentritic cell vaccine and personalised cancer vaccinations. These treatments have been seen to cure the 'UK NHS incurable'!!
Unfortunately the cost of around 9 weeks of treatment here will be over £100k.
I am asking for absolutely any help you can provide, donations as small as you can afford, sharing the story, fundraising ideas, events anything you can do to help.
If 0.1% of the UK population donated £1 we would hit our target so please donate and help us get the work out there.
Thank you very much for reading this and for any help you can give. Me, my kids, and all of our family really need Sally in our lives.
I cannot imagine facing it alone without the love of my life and soulmate.
Thank you, Liam x
