Speaking to Beat News, Marie says the support has been overwhelming:

"We decided to go ahead because I'll be starting treatment soon and we just said we may as well do it now while I'm well enough and I can enjoy it."

"It's so overwhelming and it's just amazing how people come together for you in hard times."
