The “Dawn Hughes Wigs to Wishes Fund” has been set up to enable me to receive further treatment at an Oncology Clinic in Germany where they have had a high success rate in stopping the spread of Cancer in patients and giving them the best possible chance of remission. The Berkshire Cancer Centre have informed me that there is little chance of my Cancer going into remission with the treatment available in this country.

Thanks for taking the time to visit my website. I'd like to tell you a little bit about myself. I'm a wife and mother of 3 young children, Matthew 13, Ellie 10 and Freddie 6. I was first diagnosed with Breast Cancer in 2001 at the age of 36. Following Chemotherapy and Radiotherapy, I was in remission until a chance MRI scan in Feb 2005 for an unrelated problem, detected that the Cancer had returned. I was then diagnosed with Secondary Breast Cancer. The likely prognosis given in February was 18 months to 5 years. I then had to undergo aggressive Chemotherapy, but following the results of a recent bone scan, it was found that the Cancer is still spreading. The treatment in Germany will cost thousands of pounds and for most people like myself, the opportunity for this is a dream. Many of my Family and Friends want to make this dream a reality and are making tremendous fund raising efforts, because without them, I would not be able to seek the treatment that I so obviously need and which is not being offered in this country.

Angry and Frustrated

I've been feeling quite angry these last few weeks. Can't really put my finger on why but I suppose it is to do with all that is going on with me. Why me etc. I suppose I am angry at the world. Trouble is, anyone that annoys me is getting the brunt of my frustrations, well strangers anyway. Especially those nosey parkers that question why I've parked in a toddler and parent spot at Waitrose when I'm feeling tired and in a little pain and don't want to walk the length of the car park. Anyway, I've applied for Blue Disabled Parking Badge which will help with that.

Went to see Les the healer tonight and he has helped to alleviate some of these feelings. Don't think they are going to go away too easily though and he has given me a meditation CD to try at home.
