MUM-of-two Katy Dawson whose friends have been trying to raise £50,000 for potentially life-saving breast cancer treatment has taken to social media to thank everyone who has supported her.
The 37-year-old from Cofton Hackett posted on Facebook on Tuesday (August 30) to show her gratitude to her supporters, including her friend Amanda who took part in the three peaks challenge and raised £1,230, and ten-year-old Finlay Bointon who collected £400 for the cause.
Katy is suffering with a rare form of breast cancer and the campaign is now nearing £40,000 for her treatment in Germany, where she is now.
She said: “I have been feeling rather lonely on my own here and missing Paul and my babies but these things give me a real boost.
“Blessed to have such wonderful supportive people in my life.
“Thank you so much to Amanda, my wonderful superwoman friend.
“Finlay is just ten and what a kind-hearted and caring young man he is. An absolute credit to his mum and dad.”
Katy’s friends and family are still fighting to raise the rest of the money for her and are pushing on with more events including a half marathon and a coffee morning at 2pm on September 25 at Aston-on-Trent Memorial Hall.
