    Story

    Four months ago my mum was told she had a recurrence of cholangiocarcinoma (bile duct cancer), inoperable and incurable and that she may have only 9 months to live. She is amazing and my best friend.There are no treatments in the UK that kills this cancer.
    She had been cancer free for 2 years since her first diagnosis when the original tumour was removed. She was on a no sugar, plant based diet, juicing every day and exercising regularly. Unfortunately, her two year check up showed it had come back.
    She was showing no symptoms and refused to accept the prognosis, so my mum and stepdad Conrad flew to America to find any other options. Within days they found a hospital where my mum started a series of 9 bespoke, integrated treatments, none of which were offered in the UK, which continued over a period of 2 months before having to return home.
    The doctor in the USA is convinced that she can cure this cancer but needs more time and insisted that my mum went back again for a life saving Dendritric Cell Cancer Vaccine (which they are trialling soon in the UK for a more common liver cancer, but it will be 5 years before its made available). On 12th September my mum had Pet and CT scans here in the UK.
    The doctors were amazed that the cancer has remained so contained as they had expected it to have spread much more by now and were scratching their heads at the results. They still insisted however that they expected my mum not to survive more than 12 months.
    We believe 100% in the doctor in the USA, she is an ex surgeon and a micro biologist and is performing miracles in a small hospital in California where patients who have been diagnosed as terminal are getting better every day. She has strongly recommended for mum to go back ASAP to do the vaccine which will be made specifically to kill her cancer.
    The treatments are very expensive and even with help from our family, we have just about run out of money.
    PLEASE, PLEASE help me to raise enough money to get her better xx

      Mum also had to have an emergency operation in the US due to a blockage on her liver. She had to have a stent fitted. She had to have this over there as she couldnt fly home as she nearly died of liver failure. This cost $64K, on top of £150k already spent. So if we can raise more money that would be so helpful. We don’t expect it, as you’ve been so kind, generous and supportive. Maybe share it on social media, so we get new supporters. Many thanks again to all of you we really appreciate every and I will keep you updated. as and when xx

      Just an update, Mum is home from the USA now, she went back January to have the 2nd immune therapy, ATA vaccine. She will have scans here in April to see what’s going on, however the scans showed 50% reduction back in December after the 1st immune therapy, the dendritic cell vaccine. I have extended the justgiving page, so I can update you all after the April scans, as it was going to end in 3 days.

      This is an update to say that we have had confirmation from a CT scan that the cancer has shrunk by 50% since having the Vaccine on the 1st November 2018. The US doctors are very happy with the progress, and suggested that mum has another vaccine to give an extra insurance policy and to kill the rest of the cancer. The doctors are saying with both these vaccines the cancer can go into complete remission. Mum is in the US now and started the new vaccine yesterday. She has to be there for 6 weeks. Thank you for all your donations and support x
