Daughter Sells All Her Possession To Save Mum From Cancer

A daughter has sold everything she owns to fund a last-ditch cancer treatment she hopes will save her mum's life.

Lori and her mother Lisa Harris have sold all their possessions in a bid to fund pioneering immunotherapy treatment, which the 46-year-old mum believes is her only chance of survival.

The two of them have been travelling Stuttgart in Germany for the treatment which is not available in the UK.

On her mother's Go Fund Me page, Lori wrote: "My mam has had incredible results and we heard from the doctor last week that she is 'almost in remission' and 'if money was not an issue I could get her into remission sooner rather than later'.

"To hear this broke my heart and to think that because she has reacted so well to the immunotherapy treatment, it is only money keeping us away from remission and a chance at a future together.

"I'm in £50,000 ($66,127) of debt myself, I have nothing left to sell but this is what I have to do, I will never ever give up. My mam means more than anything I could ever own."

The pair have sold their house, both of our cars and spent all of her retirement fund on her first treatment in February this year. The treatment, which needs to be administered every cost of £25,800 ($34,121).

Writing about the struggles they have been through, Lori said: "I don't want to lose my mam, she is all that I have.

"Money is nothing compared to a life and we have a chance at a life together.

"As an only child and a single woman, we are trying our best to do this on our own.

"It is the hardest thing to raise money because there are so many charities to choose from.

"The NHS can't do anything for us now."
