    Story

    Anne received the devastating news on Monday 8th August 2016 that her Her2+ aggressive breast cancer has spread to her liver. She has been told by two worldwide renowned oncologists (based in London and Edinburgh) that her best chance of a good quality of what life is left is to start Kadcyla immediately. Sadly, NHS Scotland do not offer this drug which is available through NHS England and now NHS Wales. Privately this drug costs c£5,000 per session every three weeks (£90,000 p.a.).

    As a wife and mother of two young boys (age 5 and 7) she will do everything in her power to be able to carry on "normal" life. This drug offers her this chance without the gruelling side affects of additional chemotherapy and radiotherapy (which she received as the initial part of her treatment over the last 2 years) with the aim of extending her life expectancy.

    We are in the process of lobbying our MP's to gain access to this drug and will continue this fight for all the women in Scotland who find themselves in a similar situation. However, for Anne, she requires this drug right now as her cancer is rapidly progressing.

    Anne has spent half her life working for the NHS and then for Marie Curie as a Palliative Care Nurse Specialist in Glasgow, tirelessly helping people with cancer.

    She now urgently needs our help to allow her to continue her battle.

    *** THIS IS A CONTINUATION OF MY ORIGINAL CROWDFUNDING PAGE WHICH CAME TO A CLOSE TO ENABLE ME TO WITHDRAW THE FUNDS TO PAY FOR MY FIRST, SECOND AND THIRD TREATMENTS. THE TOTAL RAISED BY 11TH SEPT WAS £27,209. THANK YOU TO ALL WHO HAVE SUPPORTED ME ***

      Hi, I HAVE BEEN FUNDED BY THE NHS FOR THE REST OF MY TREATMENT. DO NOT DONATE ANY MORE!!! I will take advice from family and friends involved in the fundraising as to where the money raised so far goes. I cannot tell you how overwhelmed I have been by the support I have received. It is an issue that means a lot to Me and I intend to wok with a variety of bodies to rectify the situation. Many heartfelt thanks, Anne

      Those boys need their mum. Don't think anything further needs to be said.
