Single Mother With Terminal Cancer Makes Bucket List With Sons

From Fox News:

Sarah Carew, 38, was diagnosed with terminal cancer earlier this year and told she had less than a year left to live.

The mother of two from Plymouth, Devon, now wants to make the most of her remaining time with her sons, Reece, 18, and Leon, 11. She wants to take the two boys on vacation, as they have never had a family holiday before, so they can make “precious memories” before she passes away.

The former teaching assistant was first diagnosed in May 2019 after she started to have difficulties swallowing when eating.

“I knew there was something wrong but my doctor said ‘No, you’re too young to have cancer,’” Carew said. “I had trouble to swallow, I knew it wasn’t normal. My GP booked me in for an endoscopy.”

She explained that cancerous cells were found in different parts of her body including the liver and, after tests, she was told cancer had actually spread everywhere.

“They said that with chemo I have a year [to live,]” she continued. “I’ve let people know because people follow me on Facebook. We had a family meeting last week to talk about what’s going to happen.”

“It’s about having lots of fun, adrenaline-rush activities and making more memories with my boys,” she said.
