A HEARTBROKEN mum of two young children has been told she has terminal cancer – and doctors don’t know how long she has to live.

Megan Scotcher, 27, has already been struck by cancer four times already and her vital organs can’t withstand another round of chemotherapy.

During a check-up in July, Megan, from Ripley, was told by doctors that she has seven tumours in her lungs.

Operating would only serve to reduce her quality of life considerably, so health professionals have advised Megan that her diagnosis is terminal.

She told the Derby Telegraph: “I’m waiting for my next clinical appointment to discuss that.

“I’m absolutely devastated – more so for my children. With the youngest it’s quite difficult because he wouldn’t really understand.

“And with my eldest, he knows that I’m poorly but at the minute he doesn’t know the full extent.”

Since discovering the heartbreaking news, the father of Megan’s children set up a GoFundMe page in Megan’s name.

The idea is for people to chip in and contribute to the cost of family experiences so Megan and her brood can make memories together.

Megan has been blown away by the response. The original target was £500, but already more than £8,000 has been raised.

She said: “It’s unbelievable – I can’t get over people’s generosity to be honest.

“It’s been mind-blowing. It’s really amazing how people can come together – I still can’t get over it now.

“We’ve been looking at nice log cabins and different places where the boys can go with the bikes. It will create some really nice memories with them.”

Megan has been battling cancer since the age of 14, when she was first diagnosed with a form of bone cancer called osteosarcoma.

After breaking her leg on holiday, Megan received an x-ray scan which revealed no lasting complications – but months later, she started losing a dramatic amount of weight and was in too much pain to walk.
