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.

Tignes, France

Just returned from a skiing holiday in France with the family. Unfortunately I was told not to ski by my Oncologist so I went along to watch but not participate. This was our first time so what I haven't done I'm not going to miss! The kids had a wonderful time and Matt especially took to it like a duck to water.

We had a little hiccup mid week when Ellie fell on the slopes and had to be carted off to the Doctors by the Mountain Rescue team. She was actually okay but had hurt her knee and the Instructor insisted that she go to the doctor in case she had hurt herself more than we knew.

Apart from that the views were spectacular and the snow was great fun. Can't say I got much rest though!
