Last post from Jo

What’s up? Well things have progressed and I fear this will be my last post. Since the brain radiation I’ve been really unwell and in the last few weeks increasingly unwell. I keep rallying but it only lasts a few hours and the nausea, diarrhoea and fatigue return. The cancer is everywhere now and we

Update December 2021

Well, as you may know things have progressed with my cancer. Now there are more lesions in my lungs, brain and now my liver. This means past treatments, including the Keytruda, have stopped as they are no longer working. I have started to feel a bit unwell with things now, so it’s getting a bit

Thank-you notes

Dear friends, I have finally finished my thank-you emails. They have taken me over a year to write.  I have tried, where possible, to add a personal touch to each one, and it has been very emotional writing them. Apologies that it has taken so long, there have been more than 777! You should be

July update

Well we’d always like an update to be positive, but that is something I can’t do today. I had a scan last Friday, and unfortunately it shows disease progression. There are two new metastases in my brain (fortunately not in very important bits!) and multiple small nodules in my lungs. One nodule in my lung

Help support Jo and her family through terminal breast cancer

At age 43, with two children aged 8 and 3, Jo faces a heartbreaking and devastating situation. Right when she should be making early memories with her family, she faces a diagnosis of terminal breast cancer. Those memories are soon all her children will have left.   #ChallengeAccepted 

“It’s my dearest wish that the boys are surrounded by love and support when I’m gone…”

“I want to live long enough for Lachy and Ben to have meaningful memories of me.”

I didn't really know Jo later on in life. We went to Primary school together. The funeral was nice, she had such an interesting life and lovely friends. I sort of knew the things that would be said, it didn't surprise me when the Goodies played tbh. Even though you don't know of people as grownup, as I child I knew she would have an interesting life, she was so determined and smart. I had no idea she loved Enid Blyton so much, looking back though I remember her telling me how she had read hundreds of her books I am sure of it, this would have been in Grade 2. I always thought if she was a character in those books she would be George from the Famous Five. I wasn't aware she had cancer until recently, I saw that a mutual friend had posted about this on fb, it is very sad. Wish I had better words to write.

In memory of an incredible, generous and delightful human. I am sure I’m one of many who have been gifted, through admiring Jo, with the inspiration to live with more passion, kindness, joy and authenticity. I am so glad our paths crossed again after Vet School. Xx

Thinking of you all, even though we have not met. I think I found Jo's blog through her sister (a fellow medical mum) when I was diagnosed with Br Ca last year. Jo's beautiful way of describing her experience was so helpful to me, so thankyou xx
