Story

Hi I'm Danielle Hughes I'm 32years old. In 2012 I was diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer since then I've had a double Mastectomy with reconstruction, all has been great up until November 2015. I Found a lump under my arm, went to the hospital to find that the cancer is back in my lymph-node under my arm and a nodule on my pectoral muscle, so I had to be induced to have my baby girl sienna a few weeks earlier than expected. I've had surgery to remove both of these, but a ct and pet scan has picked up bumps on my pleura (the lining of the lung) which unfortunately means it's now stage 4. That means they can't cure me so are trying to keep it stable for as long as possible with hormone suppressant medication. They say my life expectancy is on average 5-10years (could be longer but then it could be shorter too). This has been so difficult to take in and I can't even think of leaving my 2 young children without a mum (Louis almost 7 and sienna almost 1).so I've been researching and have come across quite a few people who have beaten stage 4 cancer with alternative treatments. I've changed my diet and have been taking lots of different supplements but need to start an actual treatment to get rid of the cancer once and for all and go into remission so I can be here for a lot longer, I'm going to Germany 27th November to start an intensive 2 week treatment that involves a number of treatments every day whilst there. This is quite costly as its not funded by the nhs so that's the reason I've done this page, if anyone can help in anyway they can It would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance ☺️
