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.

Rang the Leonardis Klinik today to cancel the taxi to Stuttgart for the PET scan on Thursday as Dad is going to drive us in the hire car, hopefully we won't get lost. Stuttgart is a three hour drive from the Klinik so we're going to have to leave at 7 am. Another early start. I certainly don't get any rest when I visit the Klinik.

I also went on to speak with Dr Jacob's (Oncologist) secretary to find out when my appointment would be with her and her secretary said that she was not going to be at the clinic on Thursday or Friday. I can't believe it because I specificially asked to see Dr Jacob during my visit and this week, beginning 30th April was when she was going to be available which is why I booked my trip. Her secretary asked if I could rearrange the flights but of course they are already booked and non-refundable. Dr Jacob has been on holiday for the last two weeks and will be back on Monday so her secretary has asked if I could call Monday afternoon.
