Many of you know me. But you might not know Janet my ex-wife so well. She's a wonderful giving person. But she needs your help. After several rounds of chemo over 13 years, the cancer that she has valiantly battled, has come back with a vengeance.

Hello everyone. Most of you know me pretty well. But you might not know Janet, my ex-wife. Even though we are not together anymore, we are still good friends. What you might not know about Janet is what a wonderful, giving person she is. I can tell you that our breakup six years ago was nothing to do with anything Janet did wrong. She is a wonderful person. She was a wonderful wife to me and a great mum to our two children Daniel and Gemma, and she cared for her father in our home for thirty years, until his recent death at 94 years of age. Another thing you might not know, is that Janet has been battling breast cancer for more than 13 years! The cancer was so aggressive initially that, within three months of her detecting it, her breast grew to twice its normal size. Because of the speed of growth it was impossible to remove safely so the doctors gave her chemo to shrink the tumour, which worked successfully. Her breast was then removed, along with several affected lymph nodes. She was then put through painful and debilitating radiation in an attempt to kill any surviving cells. The long battle has been hard, but Janet is a battler with a fierce will to live. However, the battle is now getting more difficult for her. During the last 13 years the tumour has returned several times resulting in several rounds of chemo. After each round the tumour has shrunk .... but not disappeared. The surviving cells become immune to each drug, which means that the oncologists have to introduce a new drug each round. They are running out of options, and the tumours have recently come back with a vengeance and are showing right across her chest. I am constant researching alternative treatments. There are several that look promising, but the problem is that they are all quite expensive. Janet needs your help. Let's get her well again.
