She's determined to do anything she can.

A daughter has sold all of her possessions to try and help fund a possibly life-saving cancer treatment for her mum.

London-based Lori Harris and her mum Lisa have sold everything they own - including their home, their cars and Lisa's pension fund.

The money is being used to fund an immunotherapy treatment for Lisa, who has stage 4 ovarian metastatic cancer.

She was told in 2015 that her ovarian cancer was terminal and she had just two years left to live - and they quickly began researching alternatives, which is when they found immunotherapy.

But because the treatment is not available in the UK, the mum and daughter have been travelling to  the Hallwang Clinic in Stuttgart, Germany, every three weeks for the past five months.

Each trip costs them approximately €38,500 (£28,500).

With nothing left to sell, heartbroken Lori has launched a GoFundMe to try and raise the funds needed to keep her mum alive.

She wrote on the page: "I don't want to lose my mam, she is all that I have.

“Money is nothing compared to a life and we have a chance at a life together. I beg you to spare even £1. We are almost there!!”

“My Mam has had incredible results and we heard from the doctor last week that she is 'almost in remission' and 'if money was not an issue i could get her into remission sooner rather than later’.

“To hear this broke my heart and to think that because she has reacted so well to the immunotherapy treatment, it is only money keeping us away from remission and a chance at a future together.

“I’m in £50,000 of debt myself, I have nothing left to sell but this is what I have to do, I will never ever give up. My mam means more than anything I could ever own."

The GoFundMe page has raised €91,245 (£82,485) at the time of writing.

And Lori is determined to do everything she can to save her mum’s life.

She wrote on the page: “We still have so far to go. As an only child and a single woman we are trying our best to do this on our own.”
