    Story

    Caroline Clayton has an inoperable brain tumour, and is raising money to go to The Burzynski Clinic in Houston Texas. Following the devastating news that her planned surgery earlier this month can now no longer go ahead. Caroline, who is married with two children, aged 10 and 7, was originally diagnosed with lung cancer in June 2016 and was told she had 3 months to live. She was then told she had the ALK gene, forms of which may increase the growth of cancer cells. Following unsuccessful gene therapy treatment, in November 2016 Caroline was diagnosed with a brain tumour and was found collapsed at home by her husband, Simon. Following Cyberknife surgery – a targeted form of radiotherapy – Caroline started another course of gene therapy. She made great progress and had a clear lung scan in May of this year. However, the gene therapy is not a cure and will only work for a few months.

    Caroline – who is a qualified Ayurvedic practitioner – needs to raise around £50,000 to attend the clinic in Texas.

    Caroline said : “Throughout my cancer journey, I have always been 100 per cent committed to living. I remain hopeful for a complete cure and am taking full responsibility for my health by taking supplements, meditating and eating healthily. If this won’t help me and I can’t heal myself holistically, the next step for me is to go abroad for specialist treatment.
