A mother diagnosed with a cancerous lung tumor hopes to get life-saving treatment in Mexico.

Stephanie Scullion, 35, from Glasgow, was diagnosed two years ago with differentiated synovial sarcoma, a form of soft tissue cancer, and since then has had to undergo numerous procedures.

His tumor was originally detected as it rapidly grew from his right lung into the lining of his heart.

Ms Scullion’s right lung collapsed during one of four attempts to biopsy the tumor, reports GlasgowLive.

Due to her chemotherapy for the past six months, she ended up in intensive care for osteoporosis, sepsis and pneumonia and underwent surgery in December 2020 which would attempt to remove her entire lung.

However, he was told that the lung would have to stay put because operating on it could be life-threatening.

However, he was told that the lung would have to stay put because operating on it could be life-threatening.

Ms Scullion was then placed on radiotherapy as her illness reached a point where she was coughing up chunks of blood.

She is currently receiving palliative care and facing another grueling round of chemotherapy to keep the tumor at bay.

Only three cycles of treatment will be offered to try and stop the growth before doctors can do anything else.

Toni Ryan, a friend of Ms Scullion, said: “Stephanie has just returned from hospital as she now has a pericardial effusion which is an accumulation of blood around her heart that makes her feel like she is having a heart attack every time it flares up.

“Stephanie received great care in hospital and was told that it was her tumor that made her heart react and filled with fluid between the double layer around the heart.”

In order to get money for what could be a potentially life-saving operation, a fundraiser has been set up to take her to Mexico so she can start a new chapter in life with her daughter, Savannah, seven years old.

Mr Ryan added: “We have discovered a place in Mexico that has an exceptional success rate in curing people’s ‘incurable cancer’.

“After getting in touch with them and going through many consultations, they gave her the amazing news that they can help her and help her naturally without harmful chemicals like chemotherapy.

“As you can imagine this could be a life saving treatment so unfortunately it comes at a very high cost. As a family we will give whatever we can, donate weekly and try to get Stephanie there- down, but we could use your help.

“Stephanie’s little girl Savannah has been watching her mum go through all of this for too long now and needs her mum to get better and can’t go through each day worrying if her mum is okay. She needs to get her mother back. happy and healthy mother next to her.

“Stephanie would also like anyone else who is also battling cancer to get in touch with her to find out more about this treatment and hopefully she can give them some hope.”

Fundraising so far has raised £14,000 of the £60,000 goal for treatment in Mexico.
