HERE IS AN EXTRACT FROM JACQUI'S STORY ................ In 1993 Jacqui had successful surgery to remove a small mole which was diagnosed a Melanoma, and was clear of Cancer. However, in 2009 a lump appeared in the same place and unfortunately it was found to be a secondary Cancer. She was referred to St James's Hospital, Leeds, where since that time she has been receiving treatment as the Cancer is malignant in stage 4.
In 2011 the Melanoma had spread to her lungs, oral chemotherapy thankfully kept things at bay for two years, but the tumour in her right lung had escalated to such a degree that in February 2015 removed the tumour and also her right lung.
Jacqui says:
“Since then I have continued with chemotherapy and other drugs for the side effects and although the above sounds devastating I am really positive and living every day to the full. Life expectancy for an “average” person with my condition is usually one year – but as the specialists say “I am not average”…..and here I am 10 years on!!……..I say “Everyone is terminally ill, it's just that I'm not getting off at this terminus”. I am still living a fun packed life.”
Jacqui's Million is all about raising awareness, positivity and also much needed funds for “Jimmy's”, The Leeds Cancer Centre. During the time Jacqui has spent there as a patient she has come to see first hand the tremendous work they do, long hours, low pay, but with an ethos that is truly outstanding – they really are all angels
Her goal is to raise £1 million for The Bexley Wing which will be used in a variety of ways, but specifically for all Cancer patients from children to adults.

Our fundraising target is: £500

Gross monies raised so far: £51

Supporters so far: 6
