患有白血病的Rugeley母親瞄準海外治療

"巴特勒夫人的朋友和同事說:"她被賦予了從兩個月到兩年的生命。

不幸的是,在2022年初,她發現自己的移植手術失敗了,並被告知國家醫療服務系統無法提供第二次移植手術,因為這很可能會殺死她。

在看到曼徹斯特的一位專家告訴她第二次移植的風險和她的預期壽命後,巴特勒夫人的朋友說,她覺得自己已經放棄了,"回來等死"。

然而,克拉克夫人和馬特-哈珀(巴特勒夫人在Fanatical(一家在線遊戲公司)的兩位同事)設立的眾籌呼籲說,是籌款 "給了她希望和生活的意義"。

巴特勒夫人的女兒米莉-梅(Milly-May)現年兩歲,不得不比預期的時間提前分娩,以便接受癌症治療。她於2020年11月快樂而健康地出生。

"克拉克夫人說:"看着米莉,不知道是否能看到她去幼兒園,這對凱莉來說是令人心痛的。

"凱莉發現把她抱起來很困難,她不是很強壯,所以是身體方面影響了她,"哈珀先生說。

巴特勒夫人的一群朋友和同事還將在每個星期天完成一次慈善步行,為這位斯塔福德郡的母親籌集資金,7月3日在坎諾克大通開始,他們將在那裡完成8英里。

巴特勒夫人目前正在與一位來自德克薩斯州的醫生商談是否有任何可能的試驗,她的朋友們希望所籌集的資金能夠為任何海外試驗的消息做好準備,這樣巴特勒夫人就 "能夠直接坐上飛機 "了。


"She has been given anything from two months to two years to live," Mrs Butler's friend and colleague said.

Unfortunately, at the start of 2022, she discovered that her transplant had failed and was told that a second transplant was not available on the NHS as it would likely kill her.

After seeing a specialist in Manchester who told her about the risks of a second transplant and her life expectancy, Mrs Butler's friends said she felt like she had given up and had "come back to die".

However, a crowdfunding appeal set up by Mrs Clarke and Matt Harper, both colleagues of Mrs Butler at Fanatical, an online gaming company, said it was the fundraising that had "given her hope and something to live for".

Mrs Butler's daughter Milly-May, who is now two, had to be delivered earlier than anticipated, so she could undergo treatment for the cancer. She was born happy and healthy in November 2020.

"It's heart-wrenching for Kelly to look at Milly and not know if she will see her go to nursery," Mrs Clarke said.

"Kelly finds it difficult to pick her up, she's not very strong, so it's the physical side that is affecting her," Mr Harper said.

A group of Mrs Butler's friends and colleagues will also complete a charity walk every Sunday to raise awareness and funds for the Staffordshire mum, starting on 3 July at Cannock Chase, where they will complete eight miles.

Mrs Butler is currently in talks with a doctor from Texas about whether any possible trials are available, and her friends hope that the money raised will be ready for any news of trials abroad, so Mrs Butler is "able to get on a plane straight away".
