    Story

    Niki is 41 and lives in Chester with her 2 boys. She is also my husbands ex wife and an amazing mum to my two stepsons aged 14 and 12. She is currently being treated in Istanbul,Turkey for stage 4 cervical cancer which was not diagnosed by the NHS until they said it was too late to treat her. They have spent over £80k themselves as a family getting private treatment in Northumberland and Istanbul where the success rate of people receiving the all clear from stage 4 cancers is exceptionally high.

    Before her cancer was diagnosed Niki was advised that the excruciating pain she was experiencing was healing from a previous operation. It was only when she was admitted to intensive care with sepsis due to an abscess on her cervix that the cancer was diagnosed as stage 2 and after 7 weeks in intensive care it had progressed to stage 4 at which point the NHS advised Niki that they would be unable to treat her as it was too advanced. Niki had been having yearly cervical smear tests and nothing was detected.

    The treatment in Turkey is going well and Niki can feel that the tumour which was visible in her abdomen is now greatly reduced. She is due to have another Pet CT scan to check treatment response at the end of October. Due to Niki needing 4 extra treatments along with unexpected costs of blood transfusions, catheter issues, scans (and other extras) not including travel and accommodation we have raised our target to £100,000. We need to be sure that Niki has the funds to complete her treatments, maintenance (when she gets the all clear!!) and aftercare.

    We wanted to make our first target achievable.... Wow was this achieved!!! We thank you with all our hearts. Please continue to share and fundraise for Niki and her boys. We‘ll get her through this together!!!!!

    Please give what you can, every penny counts towards Niki continuing her lifesaving treatment. And share share share.... Thank you from the bottom of our hearts The Hitchens xxx

      Hi all Niki has had a rough few weeks and has been in hospital in Chester trying to get herself well enough for her next trip to Istanbul this coming Sunday. Looks like she’ll be well enough to travel and have her next round of thermo chemotherapy. We wish her all the best on her journey and I’m sure everyone will agree that she is so determined to beat this and she’s has all our positive thoughts and energy travelling with her. Thank you again for all your support... oh and happy payday 😊 let’s get sharing. Much love The Hitchens xxx
