Story

Welcome to our fundraising page we really hope you can take the time to read,and hopefully donate or help raise funds towards this specialist cancer treatment which will help lysa spend precious time with family and friends.

For those that do not know lysa and her condition i will try to explain.In 2016 after episodes of hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) lysa was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer called Malignant Insulinoma, which are tumors that secret insulin and lower blood sugar to life threatening levels,Unfortunately the disease had spread to distant organs which means it is incurable and surgery is not an option. It can only be slowed down by hormone treatment and specialist radiation treatment. This treatment targets receptors of the tumours and delivers radiation direct to the tumours which slows down progression of disease and help control hypoglycemia.this is the most effective treatment for these types of tumours and lysa responded very well, unfortunately this treatment is not available on the NHS and has to be privately funded at a cost of approximately £28,000. After many battles with NHS England and other authorities, Addenbrookes hospital decided to provided the lutate therapy on compassionate grounds in 2016-2017 which we are forever grateful, this treatment has given lysa nearly 12 months with no symptoms so she has been able to enjoy amazing times and made special memory's with our children, friends and family .

Unfortunately lysa has spent time recently in hospital and we have been advised by her consultant that we may need the lutate therapy treatment again soon, unfortunately Addenbrookes hospital are not in a position to provide the treatment for a second time.So we are asking as many friends,family,and businesses to help donate or raise funds to secure this treatment and enable lysa to enjoy more precious time with her family and friends. If you would like anymore information do not hesitate to contact me, skemp.441@btinternet.com or 07539 217985.

many thanks stuart and lysa
