Weʼre raising £50,000 to Help Nicola get the specialist treatment she needs for her cancer. Her cancer is a high grade neuroendocrine small cell carcinoma.
Nicola can only have been described as “body goals”, “Fitness lover”, “The energiser bunny”. Her energy for life, still now is pretty infectious and her desire to live & to help others is pretty awe inspiring.
Nic was diagnosed with a very rare cancer just last May (2019). She was getting pain in her bottom, they checked an said all was fine. Still, the pain became worse and pretty excruciating so she went back in for more investigations. So determined & so in touch with her body, she remained awake during the procedure and guided them to the actual spot where they found a tiny ‘half the size of your little nail’ polyp type lesion. Tests showed it was in fact a Neuroendocrine Small Cell Carcinoma of very high grade – meaning very aggressive basically. How aggressive is scored based on the presence of a protein KI67. Nic’s is 90%.
