Louise Cook (UK) has only 27, but she won’t see her three daughters grow, Summer (6), Mason (4) and Chloe, because she has only 18 months life left. And all because of Solarium. Frequent visits to the solarium caused skin cancer which she was diagnosed when she was 10 weeks pregnant with her third child.
Louise asked for medical help when she noticed an unusual ‘mole’ on her back itching and bleeding. Tests have shown that the mole is cancerous.
During operation the mole was removed, but six weeks later she discovered a lump on her neck. She managed to finish her pregnancy and give birth to a healthy baby, but the little Chloe was born prematurely.
However, although she thought that the therapies were doing good, it turned out that Louise has two tumors of the brain and that is now in the fourth stage, when treatment is no longer possible. Louise has up to 3 months life, but doctors claim that her poor condition is because of solarium.
– I was very young and naive, and i will pay with my life. However, while I’m here, I won’t allow cancer to define our lives, says Louise.
Her partner Martin returned from Afghanistan to be beside her. Family and friends are also great support for Louise. They even decided to make her biggest wish come true.
Her dream is to take the children at the center “Parcs” for last family vacation. Since Cook’s family does not have enough money to do so, her best friend opened a page on which they collected the necessary funds for Louise and her family to go on a vacation.
