    Story

    Being diagnosed with breast cancer in February 2015 aged 37 Rebekah Cole mum to a 7 -year old son and a 8 month old daughter suffered months of chemotherapy a mastectomy and radiotherapy. Being the selfless person she is she even found the strength to help other cancer sufferers maintain some control becoming an ambassador for 'Paxman Cooling Caps' which she herself used throughout her treatment to retain her hair, something she knew was important to patients through her experiences of owning 'Woodview' beauty salon in her local community.
    Becky was supported throughout her treatments by friends, family and husband Rob with the future looking positive when Becky was struck by what was thought to be a chest infection. Antibiotics proved to be unsuccessful an further investigation led to the discovery that the cancer had returned with a vengeance less than 2 years after her first diagnosis! This time being so severe and aggressive that within a month it had consumed half her lungs leaving her struggling for breath. This left little hope apart from chemo but only prolong life for a short time leaving nothing more to be done for her.....doctors have given up on her completely! Faced literally with a death sentence Becky couldn't bare the thought of her children (now 9 yrs and 2 yrs) growing up without a mother and how would her husband cope? Fuelled by these thoughts they started researching which is when the 'Hallwang Oncology Clinic' based in Germany came to light, specialising in immunotherapy something unavailable in the U.K. Bringing hope of prolonging Becky's life much further than chemo ever could, even eradicate the cancer altogether being the only chance Becky has left but the cost of travel and medical bills is immense this is where you come in. Can you help us to raise funds which could possibly 'Save Becky' any contribution however small will help go towards saving this young woman's life ensuring her children don't grow up without a mum. Please donate.

      A massive thank you to all those who have supported Becky to raise funds for her treatment. Without kind, generous people like you all, it would not have been possible to even think about paying for the treatment Becky so desperately needs it is literally a matter of life and death so I thank you all on Becky's behalf from the bottom of our hearts ❤️️❤️️

      Hi Becky will be going to the Hallwang Clinic in the next few days for her initial consultation and first part of the treatment following a recommendation from the doctor there as to the urgency of her condition. This has only been made possible due to the clinic wavering the initial 80% total cost up front and accepting an initial contribution as timing is critical. Please continue to support Becky through this heartbreaking journey and may your thoughts be with her and her family throughout her trip to Germany xx

      Thank you for all the kind donations. Becky is truly touched by all the generosity people have shown and the words of comfort have meant a great deal to her ❤️ Plans are currently under way for Becky to hopefully go to Germany for her first consultation next week. Following this we should have a more realistic view of exactly how much the treatment will cost, what the treatment will actually be and the time scale involved until then please keep donating so she has the funds to go forward as time is of the essence.
