clare has secondary cancer and needs treatment that is not available through nhs. The cost of this treatment is £10000 .

This familys sad story began on boxing day 2010 when dad /grandfather passed away suddenly in his sleep. Absolutely devastated and grief stricken the family tried to continue as best they could . Then in 2012 clares grandmother who had been suffering for some time with severe dementia tracically passed away leaving the family once again heartbroken. Only two weeks after her grandmothers passing grief stricken clare became unwell and went to her GP . She was referred to hospital with a suspected pollop in her bowel. The procedure she had in heartlands hospital was very traumatic and unsuccessful so an operation was needed the very next day. When clare awoke from the operation she found out she had had bowel cancer but they had successfully removed it all . It was decided by her consultant that given her age general health and type of cancer that it was highly unlikely for it to return so chemotherapy was not given. Two years on clare began to struggle with her breathing and lost a considerable amount of weight. She was then diagnosed with secondary cancer in her lung and liver. She began chemotherapy which she continues to recieve up til now. Clares recent test results on her nodules in her lung and liver have appeared to respond to a trial drug which could prolong her current life expectancy of 3 - 6 months. This treatment however is a new treatment which is not generally funded by the nhs. It can be done privately at a cost of £10000 which is why we are currently fund raising to get clare the treatment she deserves . Any support or ideas will be gladly appreciated .
