Help support a Police Officer diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer

Police Hour is announcing our support to help raise £100k to help save Laura a serving police officer with Cleveland Police.

Laura needs the police community and supporters to pull together to give her a fighting chance.

She has ran into danger when many would run, she has saved lives and protected many now it’s time for us to pay it forward and help Laura.

The background

Last year the family of Laura went went to a family wedding, but laura was noticeably missing from the dance floor.

Where was she? She would usually be up dancing with all the wives. Instead she was sitting down subdued and in pain.

Infact she had been to the doctors with the pain and was waiting for some test results to come back.

Laura had not told anyone at the wedding because really she did not want to ruin the wedding and upset people, like in her role as a police Officer she put others first not to ruin the happiness of the event.

But the truth was she could not dance because she was extremely worried and in extreme pain. She just wanted those test results but put on a brave face.

In the days that followed the family would move from celebration to finding out some news that would rock her world and have a huge impact on the family.

Laura is going through something each and every one of us dread, she’s is a beautiful lady of 35, wife of Stephen who absolutely adores her, mum of 2 beautiful babies.

Laura loves to play netball, spend time with her family and works to protect the children of Teesside.

In August Laura was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer, it’s aggressive, and advanced.

Laura was told that there was little treatment available for this type of cancer, she sort advice from London and was advised to try to get onto a trial.

Laura tried but unfortunately there was a 10 week delay to start treatment, Chemo started the following week. 

Laura and Stephen have attempted everything within there power to improve Laura’s health from aloe Vera drinks, changing her diet, taking CBD oil, weekly pilates, meditation and breathing exercises.

She has remained positive and absolute warrior and inspiration.

Stephen is keeping the family held together and positive and supporting Laura and the family.

In November some great news came that the Tumours has shrunk meaning the family could enjoy Christmas.

Another Scan followed in February and Laura began feeling unwell, she picked up a cold and became more breathless and began struggling with walking up an uncline.

She spoke to her consultant and another blow was handed the improvement had stopped and new progression seen, the chemo has stopped working.

Laura has been put forward for another trial but she may not be a suitable candidate, there are treatments available outside the NHS.

we are asking for donations to send Laura abroad for specialist treatment… please help. This route of funding is not something Laura has wanted to chase but now is willing to try anything to save her life. 

Please help us to give Laura, Ste and their babies more Christmas’s,  birthdays and morning snuggles together.

don’t let Jan and Ray see their daughter suffer any longer.

I’m now begging for the people of Teesside to come together and support by giving and sharing to all your contacts, help us fight for Laura’s life. Please donate here
