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.

Family Fun Day at the Prince of Wales - 27th July

Kate Wilson and Helen Donahue have been busy organising a family fun day at the Prince of Wales on Sunday 27th July.

There will be live performances from: White Sunday (doing an acoustic set) - These guys played at the Prince on Friday also Liam O'Brian and Headline.

There will be various things for the children to do including a Bouncy Castle, Face painting and Games

A Raffle will be held with some fantastic prizes donated by local businesses.

There will be a bbq in the gardens - Food donated by Niki and Gary (landlady/landlord of the Prince), all profit from this will be donated to the fund.

Well done to Kate and Helen for organising this event. I know they are really pleased by the response they've had from those who really want to help.

Events like this will really make a difference for me. The treatments I'm undergoing in Germany at the moment are very expensive but the results are so encouraging.

    Unfortunately the Mysterons are unable to make the event, no need to worry though Headline have agreed to play so there will still be 3 acts performing on the day xxx
