Now living in Queensland, she has revealed she is battling stage 4A cervical cancer.
Her parents have created a GoFundMe page, called Kimberley’s Fight For Life, attempting to raise $20,000 for her medical treatments.
“Our beloved bubbly girl Kimberley has been silently fighting a battle with cervical cancer since she was first diagnosed on the 23rd of August 2019”, it says.
“We have recently learned in the last weeks that her treatments and medications have not been successful in slowing down the growth of her cancer and it has now been upgraded to stage 4A and has spread to her kidneys and rectum as well.
“She will now undergo intensive IV chemotherapy to try and kill the active cells and stop it spreading to her lungs.”
Duthie has a two-year-old son and was running a beauty salon before being forced to close it due to the coronavirus crisis.
“As most of you know by now I am battling aggressive cervical cancer,” she wrote on Instagram.
“My beautiful parents have set up a @gofundme page to support me during my treatment.
I just want to thank everyone for the beautiful calls, messages and comments following yesterday’s news. You are all so selfless and kind hearted with the offers of help I am receiving. Honestly taken back by how much I mean to you all. This is life changing and if I make it out alive I will view the world completely differently. There is so much love and compassion out there that gets often blinded by the bad chaos in the world.
“You can read a more detailed version of my diagnosis and current situation on the go fund me page – the way they have written it is beautiful it’s made me Cry. Please only donate if you can, I don’t want to put financial stress on anyone just because I am sick. love you all so much xxxxx.”
