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.

Merry Christmas

Just wanted to wish all family, friends and well wishers a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Hopefully 2008 will be a better year although having said that, it's not going to get off to a good start with the start of chemo in January.

Anyway, I hope I have replied to all those emails sent and if for some reason you haven't had a reply then I haven't received your email. Please try again because I do really appreciate all the emails of encouragement that I have received. It really does give me and the family a real boost.

Best wishes to All.

    Hello Dawn. I want to tell you how much you have inspired me with your postings and in the battle to get the treatment you need.

    I came across your website when I searched for biphoshonate, as I have just been told I will need this further to my own battle with breat cancer.

    Thank you for your inspiration, and I hope you will be pain-free for as long as possible.
