My sister,who's just turned 40 has been diagnosed with terminal cancer, January this year she got taken into hospital with severe stomach cramps and after tests,scans etc was told she had cancer in her ovaries, abdominal wall, large intestine,small intestine and its growing on her liver. The hospital will not operate or offer chemo as thhe cancer is too far advanced, the prognosis,from the most recent scan is around 6 months .She had been in pain for a while,but,didn't want to "put on anyone" or "worry anyone" ,especially my mother who is still trying to cope with the loss of my father who passed away from cancer a few years ago.
My sister is the sweetest,most caring loving person that I've ever met, even when she is in agony she still manages a smile for my mother and even when tears are rolling down her cheeks,she still says she's "fine" .
Just before she was diagnosed with cancer she left an abusive relationship,she left with nothing,she hasn't any money,very few clothes and has come to live with myself and my 2 children,and I can care for her daily,which is a massive struggle as I am struggling myself,my husband walked out on me and our 2 children for another woman last year, and left me with nothing and in an emotional mess.
I struggle day to day trying to care for my sister and raise 2 children and also care for my mother who's almost given up on life itself.
I'm worried sick,loosing sleep about how I will be able to cover funeral costs when the time comes and how I can make her life a little more comfortable in the weeks before, I literally have nothing,I've sold bits of furniture that I can live without to start a funeral fund,but I've only managed to raise just over £100 ,I have no one to help me, so I'm appealing for donations towards my sisters funeral and help try and make her life a little more comfortable towards the end, if you cannot donate,please can you send a little prayer to my sister and also my mother for strength,thank you for taking the time to read this xx
