Story

My name is Caroline Burns. I have a BRAIN TUMOUR the technical name for it is Anaplastic Astrocytoma-grade 4 Tumour. I was told that there was no more treatment available on the NHS for my condition.

I was diagnosed in 24th June 2013 when my boy Jack was only 9years old. I was going to the doctor for 14months with sore heads and got my scan and that's what showed that I had cancer in my brain at that moment the fight started.

I have had chemotherapy and also radiotherapy I also had a operations to take 70% of the tumour away. The size of the tumour to start with was the size of a tennis ball gives you a good idea of what was inside my head.

I was told on the 27th of March 2015 that I had only 3 to 6 months to live if chemotherapy worked 12months at a push.

After the 1st treatment of chemo I was told it hadn't worked there was nothing left for me to turn to.

After my husband and my dad done some research I came across -

:Cannabis oil (cbd)

Ldn

:sativex

All this costs in the region of £1500 per month

Up To this point I have spent just over £30,000 now I'm looking for some help to keep my fight going.

With this treatment I have been taking in the last 9months my tumour has started dropping in size and I have been told they can't stick a time on life expectancy because how positive the treatment has had on my body.

My boy needs me in his life so with this info I have started a donation page for help. We are proud people and this wasn't easy to do but I want to spend as much of my boys life with him as possible.

Please help us fight this
