    Hi my names Barbara. And this is my story.
    In November 2015 I was devastated to find out that my breast cancer that I had been diagnosed with in 2010 had returned, this time though it had not only spread into my other breast with the same lymph invasion as before. it had also spread to my chest skin and sternum. Sternum cancer is extremely rare and mine cannot be removed by surgery.
    I have had six mths of weekly intense chemotherapy this yr from January to June that has been unsuccessful, this was so soul destroying and heartbreaking for me and my family and I felt totally let down, and really just wanted to give up.
    My sternum cancer is at risk of spreading further into my bones and will eventually head for other internal organs in my body.
    I have researched a clinic in Germany that can offer me life saving treatment.
    The clinics success rate is high but as we all know nothing is 100% certain for a cancer patient.
    I cannot afford this treatment on my own without the help of this fund raising page and donations. The treatment is expensive and they ask that u stay at the clinic for 3wks to achieve the best possible outcome from your time there. Please please please can u all help me raise funds by donating to me and sharing my page please.
    I thank everyone from the bottom of my heart for any offer of help in reaching my target.
    I can only hope and pray that the treatment I am likely to receive at this clinic will enable me to live a long healthy life in the future as there is no other treatment available for me at my local hospital.
    Each and every dose of chemotherapy is killing off and weakening my body bit by bit contributing to me having to take more painkillers on a daily basis.
    The doctors have told me that I cannot have anymore chemotherapy.
    Therefore the only option I have left is to go to Germany, I can then give myself a chance of surviving for a few more years afterwards.
    Thank you for reading my story.
    Much love.

      Thank you to everyone that has recently donated to me. I really do appreciate each and every donation towards my thanksgiving page. I really need this treatment to help me get well again. Every day is an uphill struggle for me from the moment I get up to the moment I go to bed. Life really does suck at the moment for me. I'm starting some reflexology today to see if that can help with the pain I experienced on a daily basis due to chemotherapy. X
