Forgive me if you are already aware that Coley & Tilley Solicitors are fundraising for our lovely colleague Katy Dawson, but if you are not aware please read on:-

Katy is a solicitor in our Employment and Litigation Department.  She already has a 4 year old daughter, but left a few months ago to give birth to her second child, a little boy.Katy with Evan - Personal Injury Pal Personal Injury Solicitors Birmingham

We have recently found out that Katy, who is only 36 years of age, left suddenly because she was diagnosed with aggressive breast cancer and had to have emergency surgery whilst still carrying her unborn son. Fortunately, the surgery went well and her son was born safely, but I can’t help thinking how frightened Katy must have been. She is now undergoing chemotherapy treatment which is making her unwell. Katy has a supportive husband, Paul. At a time when they should be experiencing great joy at the new addition to their family, they are having to deal with cancer and the effects of treatment. It must be so difficult for them all.

There is revolutionary treatment available in Germany for the aggressive cancer which Katy has, but at a cost of £50,000. Katy has set up a fundraising page to raise money to have the treatment.  All Katy wants is to be here to be a Mum to her children.

We at Coley & Tilley Solicitors have joined together as a team to help raise money for Katy. We are all walking, running, cycling, swimming etc and counting our miles. We hope as a combined team to clock up the same amount of miles in our day to day lives (in 3 weeks only) that Katy has to cover to get to Germany and back home again. We are getting sponsored for our efforts.

We ask that you sponsor us, even just a little amount, through Katy’s fundraising page. Here is the link Katy’s fund is already at £23,000. She is therefore almost half way to her target of £50,000.

We will update you with Katy’s progress. You can also follow us on Facebook and Twitter.  Please follow the links from our website.

Thank you in advance for your donations.
