A young female blogger who decided to tell all of us a tale of her own; as she is fighting with her liver because of bowel cancer. Her name is Hannah Lyson who belongs to Lancashire and has also started the blog Hanna's Bowel Cancer Journey which chronicles her fight.
In a recent blog post, Hannah reveals that doctors have decided to stop her chemotherapy; and not just this, she has made some more shocking revelations.
Let's find out!
In her small post, Hannah has revealed that doctors gave her 'the worst news imaginable' when they told her that they've decided to stop her chemotherapy as her body has stopped responding to the treatments.
"I'm not writing a blog post as I don't have the effort or ability right now, but sadly today we've been given the worst news imaginable. 'Sadly, the doctors have decided there's no more chemo for me and the liver is winning this fight and I am losing."
Initially, doctors had believed that it was just a bowel syndrome disease when she confirmed her symptoms of a backache and constipation, but soon her tests revealed that she has five tumours growing on her bowel and liver.
Having watched two of her sisters successfully fighting the thyroid cancer and leukaemia, Hannah hoped high that she could do it too.
But sadly she said that doctors had stopped her treatment as her body isn't responding the way she and her family hoped.
"I've tried so hard, and my family and I are distraught, so please respect our privacy during this time. Maybe at some point, I will write a blog post, but right now I'm now feeling up to it."
But it's been more than months, and her tumours are only increasing day by day which has worsened the condition for the doctors.
Hannah says, "It's been a whirlwind few months. At first, my doctors were unsure, but now they are feeling more confident. My outlook is much better, and I feel sure I can beat this. 'I'm the first 19-year-old with bowel cancer at the hospital, so my doctors are not sure how my body will react, but I'm doing so well."
We all are praying with all our hearts, Hannah. Our well-wishes are always with you. Get well soon.
That's all, folks!
