When mum-of-three Jay was diagnosed with gray zone lymphoma, she was rushed into chemotherapy immediately: her blood cancer was that serious.
She was hooked up to a chemotherapy pump 24 hours a day, five days a week. But even though Jay was in sheer agony, she only had one thing on her mind: her children.
“I didn’t want them to have to think, ‘Is Mummy going to die?’ Kids shouldn’t have to worry about their mum or dad. It should be the other way around. I felt terrible.”
No mum should feel terrible, because they have blood cancer. No mum should feel like they’re letting their children down or not looking after them, because they’re stuck in hospital.
Please give now to help mums with blood cancer focus on what matters most: their recovery and their family.
With your gift, you could help provide mums like Jay with a Leukaemia Foundation Blood Cancer Support Coordinator.
Thanks to you, these specialist support staff do everything and anything they can to help. They help take care of all the day-to-day things, helping mums focus on what matters most: their recovery and their family.
Jay’s Blood Cancer Support Coordinator was called Jane, and she was there all the way through treatment. Thankfully Jay’s blood cancer is now in remission:
“I couldn’t have made it without Jane. Her support meant that I could spend more time with my children and give them a normal childhood. So they felt better, and so did I.”
So please will you give today and help provide mums like Jay with a Blood Cancer Support Coordinator?
You could help look after the mums, so they can look after their children – and the whole family can get through the terrible ordeal of blood cancer. Thank you.
