During a short visit in Germany she felt heaviness on her left arm which she assumed was as a result of some heavy shopping her and a friend had carried the previous day and thus didn’t give it much thought. The following week whilst in the shower she felt a tiny lump on the breast. She visited the doctor and it was discovered that she had breast cancer.
The cancer has been very aggressive and the tumour has continued to grow in size since the initial diagnosis but has not metastasised except the 2 lymph nodes involved from the start. Scollah is being treated at Dr. Herzog Clinic in Nidda, Germany receiving alternative treatment (integrated oncology) that includes chemotherapy (due to the type of cancer)(triple negative ER moderately positive) combined with hyperthermia and other therapies.The integrated treatment will provide her with a lot of infusions and therapies that protect her body from some of the effects of chemo and also strengthen her immune system.
The doctor has advised the treatment will be for 6 weeks costing approximately £25,000. Scollah is not working and has no medical insurance to fund the treatment. We her family are giving our every support to Scollah so she can have the medical attention she needs to get better BUT, with the huge amounts of funds required, our resources are limited and can only go so far.
We are therefore making an urgent appeal to all of you friends and family as well as well wishers to kindly help Scollah continue to get this most needed treatment.
Any donation however big or small is very much appreciated and will go a long way in assisting Scollah get better.
We do hope to come back and give regular updates on Scollah’s progress.
