Hi my name is Michelle Lowe and my lovely friend Andrea McKenziw has just been diagnosed with cancer.
Andrea is a sole parent to a beautiful daughter Angelique who is 10 years old. She have been diagnosed with stage 3 colorectal cancer which means that it has invaded several of her pelvic lymph nodes. The treatment and the road to recovery will be a long process as she have to undergo 7 weeks of chemotherapy and radiotherapy to shrink the tumour before the surgery. After this she will undergo major surgery to remove the tumour. Then she has to undergo post op chemotherapy followed by another operation to restructure the bowel. The surgeon has told her that the whole process will take up to 2 years.
I am asking people to donate so that Andrea can have some financial support to pay rent, bills, food and personal care for her daughter. She aIso have to pay for her treatment up front before she is partially reimbursed by medicare. She is unable to work as a cleaner through this process and as a sole parent up to now she has managed to stay afloat but this will be very hard to do througout this journey.
Andrea feels positive that she will beat this cancer and survive this journey with the support and love of her family and friends. Her daughter Angelique keeps her spirits up and she is looking forward to their future together.
