Story

Hi im Allison and im sure most of you know my story

I was diagnosed with small cell lung cancer in july 2014 and have been undergoing chemotherapy and radiotherapy ever since,ive now finished chemo and have one more session of radiotherapy left on my head just in case a stray cell has got lodged there! My last xray was promising and showed the tumour had shrunk but as small cell cancer is one of the most aggressive types im sure the docs will be keeping a close eye on me,my aim is to raise as much as possible for the hospital that basically saved my life,the work they do is invaluable and I know my treatment must have cost thousands so if you can spare any money at all from as little as 50p to a few pounds I  and the hospital would be so grateful. Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

*UPDATE* 07.06.2015

Unfortunately on 8 May 2015 Allison passed away from problems stemming from an ovarian tumour. She never knew she had this. Allison was a remarkably courageous wife and mother and was so proud to have beat lung cancer. It is because of her inspiring bravery and her determination to say thank you to Weston Park that her family will now take over her fundraising page and will raise as much as they can for them in her honour.
