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.

In need of some healing

Saw Les the Healer this evening for my weekly appointment. I think since coming back from Germany I have been under a lot of stress. I've been really tired and quite grumpy so I needed some relief from this.

I also talked to him about the scan results. Les is always very positive about my situation and he is able to give me a lot of support and advice when I'm going through such a tough time. He truly believes that I can over come this but has made some suggestions tonight that I will find hard to carry through to his word. Giving up meat (certainly while the cancer is active) and giving up alcohol!! I'm gonna find the last one hard to do, not that I drink loads but I'm thinking that just one now and again can't do any harm. Becoming vegetarian is also hard in that I'll have to cook different meals every day for the family. I did try being vegetarian last year when I was first diagnosed but found it hard going.

Also, having read Gloria Hunniford's book about her daughter Caron, I'm not so sure that all this will make a difference!
