The family of a brave mother-of-two diagnosed with terminal colon cancer needs your help to raise £80,000 to give her more time to live.
Samantha (aka Sam) Coley, of Cobbett Road, Whitton, has been on a journey to fight stage 4 incurable metastatic colon cancer since August last year, and needs private test and treatments not available on the NHS.
More recently, in January this year, the 34-year-old was dealt another blow when she was told by doctors she also had secondary cancer in her urethra and pelvis.
Sadly, only on Wednesday (May 17) she was given more devastating news that the cancer has spread further, including both her lungs.
A crowdfunding page has been set up by her sister Emily Coley, 35, of Waverley Avenue, Whitton, to help drum up funds.
On the JustGiving Page she writes: "Unsurprisingly Sam treats this as a minor setback and continues to smile throughout her relentless ordeal.
"She never ceases to amaze us with her fighting spirit.
"Finding Sam the best treatment available is imperative to help prolong her life. We hope this will also allow Sam to spend valuable time with her loved ones."
The race is on as Sam fights to prolong her life so she can spend more time with her boys Theo O'Neill, aged six, and Liam O'Neill, aged nine, who attend Nelson Primary School in Whitton.
A number of fundraising events have already been held including a Family Sunday Funday, quiz and disco night and the Nelson School Tote Race night.
The school event raised a phenomenal £4,500 through tote racing, a horse auction, a grand raffle draw with 50 prizes.
In addition, one pupil from the school Eloise Fursse known for being a chatterbox has completed a 10-hour sponsored silence on Bank Holiday Monday raising £750 for her friend's mum.
Together with online donations, so far a total of £40,000 has been raised reaching the halfway mark.
