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.

Bone Scan

Had the bone scan in Weilheim but again staff have changed and I don't recognise anyone. The doctor I usually see has left (Dr Kock).

Had the scan and within 10 minutes got the results. There appears to be no change in progression and if anything there has been slight regression which is fantastic. Just have to wait for the MRI scan results on my brain tomorrow.

Went back to the clinic and had a number of infusions including hepa metz to flush out the liver and selenium.

Following lunch Dr Draczynski carried out a liver ultrasound. He said that he can see a lesion on the liver and would need to refer to the last ultrasound scan he did in May to compare. I did mention that I had a liver ultrasound at my local hospital in July and they saw the same lesion and said that it was seen on the last liver ultrasound 2 years ago and the only change is the size, otherwise they were not concerned.

The MRI is booked for 9.15am tomorrow.
