Fresh’s part in Jenny’s touching story of Breast Milk and her fight with Cancer
We’ve heard an incredible and touching story this week after Fresh Logistics were asked to collect Breast Milk from several locations around the UK and deliver to France. As Fresh Logistics specialise in finding solutions for the out of the ordinary enquiries, this was something that we accomplished after planning and communicating from start to finish, but when we discovered what the Breast Milk was for, it has proved to be an amazing and potentially ground breaking story.
Jenny, who lives in Australia, was diagnosed with Multiple Melanoma in December 2011. Her son, Matthew (pictured above along with the Breast Milk that has been transported by Fresh Logistics) lives in France, and Jenny is due to visit Matthew for a holiday in the coming weeks, something she believes wouldn’t have been possible without the use of Breast Milk.
Jenny has worked as a Midwife for 45 years and a Lactation Consultant for the last 15 years. She is passionate about supporting mothers who breastfeed and educating about the benefits of Breast Milk for babies. Jenny has always promoted Breast Milk for everyone not just babies because of its amazing healing benefits and biochemistry. Ironically, when the Doctor told her she had cancer of the bone marrow, she knew immediately she would take Breast Milk and document every detail of this process for eventual research. Conventional medicine has played a role in her treatment in the form of medication at times and a stem cell transplant early on after the diagnosis however the Breast Milk has been the mainstay throughout.
Jenny was a founding member of a Milk Bank set up in her area in Australia and immediately contacted the Manager and was given access to the frozen donor milk that was not suitable for premature babies to use. She drinks Breast Milk that does not pass the stringent global guidelines for babies and therefore would be discarded.
She has been taking 300 -400 ml of milk per day for 4.5 years. Jenny benefits from the immune properties in the Breast Milk strengthening her immune system and therefore preventing infection. All the ingredients in Breast Milk benefit the body making it feel very healthy and free of the symptoms of Myeloma including bone pain, fractures, infections, tiredness and the potential for the disease to spread into the bones. Currently Myeloma is incurable therefore she needs to take the Breast Milk daily. It is a commitment that keeps her healthy and with a wonderful quality of life.
The transportation process was started when Matthew contacted me a few weeks back and was struggling to find a company that had the compliance, inclination and expertise required to collect the Breast Milk from several different locations around the UK and store frozen in Central London, then transferred to France in a completely regulated frozen delivery to Matthew’s house.
On the arrival of the Breast Milk, Matthew commented ‘Thanks again for your help with this Oli. I rang a few different couriers and you were the only one that showed an interest in what we were doing and the whole project has been a massive success, thanks to you and your team.’
Jenny has since said ‘I have been following the arrival of the Breast Milk at Matt and Marisa’s home with great interest and total amazement. Your company has made the project a total success with a very professional and caring approach. I am in awe of what has been achieved to enable me to continue taking Breast Milk during our 2 month holiday in France.’
