Story

Beautiful Laura started her first term at King's College University in London studying International Relations in September 2018. She had worked so hard to get her 3 grade A's and was just getting used to student life when she started to suffer persistent headaches.

Laura joined the University Navy Corps and as part of the process she had a medical and an eye test. During the test the optician recognised abnormalities behind Laura's eyes and referred her to Moorfield's Eye Hospital.As the diligent student she is, she first went back to college to do a presentation on Iraq and then went on to hospital and was referred to a Neurologist.

Her families lives then changed forever, as Laura was diagnosed with at least six brain tumours.

So 6 weeks after her family had helped her get settled into her new university accomodation, they had the heartbreaking task of packing up and bringing her home again.

Laura was then diagnosed with Glioblastoma Multiforme, stage 4 brain cancer.

In addition to 6 weeks of radiotherapy, oral chemo, and soon starting a further 6 months of chemo, Laura's family are trying everything they can to stall or halt this disease. This includes treatments which are still in the experimental phase, specifically DCVax; a groundbreaking new treatment which creates personalised immune therapy made from each patient's own dendritic cells.

The results of this trial are really positive and are extending the overall survival rate for people like Laura.

Unfortunately for Laura, DCVax is yet to be approved by NICE so they need to fund the treatment themselves, at an initial cost of £150,000, and a maintenance cost of around £26,000 per year, which is a huge amount for any family to try and find.

They don't have a lot of time and are doing everything they can. If you feel you could help by making a small donation, we would all be so very grateful.
