I'm sure you are all now aware of Ange and Tom's devastating news. We are hoping to reach out for your love, help and if possible, financial support.
Ange received heartbreaking news after a routine check-up at Salisbury Maternity Unit. She was discovered to have a Stage 2 Brain Tumour. In the last couple of weeks this has progressed to Stage 4 - and unless operated on would put her life in serious and immediate risk. Ella will be born at just 30 weeks on Wednesday 13th September and Ange will then be rushed into surgery where they will attempt to remove as much of the tumour as possible. As the tumour is located in the part of the brain that effects memory, the operation carries some serious risk that short, and long term memory will be damaged.
Even if the operation goes as well as it can be hoped, it is likely that Ange, Tom and Ella will have a limited time to spend with each other as a family. Ange is being being incredibly strong and courageous during this time but as you can imagine this is a truly impossible situation for them both.
The most important thing is that Ange, Tom and Ella have as much quality time together, and money should be the last thing that they're worrying about. We're asking friends, family and even strangers to help as much as they can. Anything is welcome, and everything raised will go directly to Ange and Tom.
Thank you for taking the time to read this and thank you for all of your love and support, I will keep you up to date..
