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.

My "Mummy Diaries" episode

The "Mummy Diaries" episode which features my family was transmitted tonight. We had already seen it but sat down together to watch it again.

We had quite a few text messages afterwards and a few phone calls. Everyone seems impressed by the whole series and I'm starting to get emails from people who have lost a loved one and they say that the programme has helped them.

I'm sad it's all over really as it was such a wonderful positive experience. I just want to thank everyone at Ricochet, especially Emma, Hannah, Tan, Sophie and of course Amanda Blue and a big thank you also to Julie Stokes. Another thank you goes to Loretta at Channel 4 who sorted out all the publicity and protected me from ones that I might not want to get involved in.
