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.

Leonardis Klinik Visit

Flew to Munich to visit the Leonardis Klinik for scans to see how I have been doing since my last visit.

Arrived at the clinic during the afternoon. There are not many patients here this time and there has been quite a few staff changes.

I saw Dr Draczynski at approximately 8.30pm (these doctors do work late!). We had a chat about what has been happening since my last visit. I was able to tell him that I have been having quite severe headaches for the last 3-4 weeks and an occasional blurry left eye. He was a little concerned about this and said that we might need to arrange an MRI scan on the brain.

He took some blood for testing including tumour markers.

My bone scan is booked for 8.15 tomorrow.
