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.

X-Ray to the Pelvis

Went for an x-ray to the Pelvis on 3/11/08 and got the results from the GP today which reads as follows:

Extensive sclerotic changes seen throughout the bony pelvis and proximal femora consistent with metastatic infiltration. Of note is an incomplete undisplaced transverse fracture through the medial aspect of the left ilium extending to the inferior aspect of the SI joint.

Undisplaced fracture of the left inferior pubic ramus is also noted.

According to the above report the bone mets have spread in the pelvis and are now affecting my pubic bone, so not only have I got a large tumour in the left hip but it is also spreading down my leg and through the pelvis.

I chatted with my GP at some length regarding pain relief as I've been in quite a lot of pain with my back. She's prescribed some different pain killers as I felt that the Tramadol were just making me too dizzy.

I've scanned the results from the x-ray and the CT scan from 16/10/08 and emailed them to the Leonardis Klinik.
