More about Jocelyns Story:

It's been a really, really tough year for our beloved friend Jocelyn Blake. After a series of surgeries throughout 2017, she was diagnosed with Stage Four of a rare and aggressive form of ovarian cancer in September 2017 and promptly started a round of chemotherapy in The Mater Public in Dublin, Ireland. Though Jocelyn is very grateful to her medical teams in Ireland who have supported her through this process, the only treatment currently available to her here is palliative i.e. relieving the pain rather than curing the cause. Jocelyn is not willing to settle for palliative treatment, which may buy her some precious time with her daughter Freya, her beloved family and her wide circle of loving friends. Instead, she is going after curative treatment. She wants to boss cancer out of her body, and she won't take no for an answer. We don't call her Bossy Jossy for nothing.

After less than a week of fundraising, our unbelievably generous donors enabled us to cover the cost of the first round of Jocelyn's treatment at the Chemo Thermia Oncology Center in Istanbul and to cover part of the associated costs of getting her to and from the Clinic. Thanks to your generosity, Jocelyn is travelling to Istanbul on Sunday 15th of October 2017 to begin her treatment at The Chemo Thermia Oncology Clinic.
