Help Abi Toyne Defeat Cancer and Save her Breast!!

Donation protected
Hey Guys
I am here to help Abigail raise the funds for a potentially life saving treatment.
Find Abi's story below, in her own words!

I am sure we all know someone who’s been given the diagnosis of cancer. When I received mine, it was like the world stopped in its tracks. As I reluctantly took each step towards a diagnosis, nothing could have prepared me for the terrifying confirmation I received when I heard the words ‘breast cancer’. In that moment I felt completely disassociated from myself and everything around me. I was not fully present in that consultation. Even though I was unable to absorb the full implications, the doctors immediately moved to discussing drugs and potential routes of treatment. I honestly wonder if anyone has ever retained a word of what is being said at such times!
I froze. Am I dreaming? Wake me when it's over, I thought. This felt like I was losing my brother (my best friend) again. Then my mind turned to my two young daughters. What if I wasn’t here, the idea of anyone else bringing up my girls made me feel physically sick. To miss out on all their special moments in life is incomprehensible. I was scared, I still am scared but I know what I am fighting for. My girls need me!
In hindsight, I found the whole process and the way it was handled frankly barbaric. However, I had to pick myself up and dust myself down to carry on for my daughters. So, I began exploring my options.
As much as a mother of two can, I have thrown myself in researching the multitude of ways to defeat cancer i.e. diet, exercise, cryoablation, immunotherapy, surgery. Once I got started, I discovered an endless list of information.
It seems our UK system doesn’t allow for alternatives; it is a machine. It is utterly cruel that women are manipulated into thinking that these torturous and out-dated techniques are the only choice they have. There are alternatives that cause less harm, incur less surgery, fewer drugs and radiation that should be available woman in the UK and worldwide. What I discovered was that cryoablation (an option not available in the UK) would enable treatment without surgery. Cryoablation, is hugely less invasive in many cases and results in less reoccurrence of the cancer than the other treatments. It is a revolutionary treatment in that it freezes the tumour in the breast, eliminating the need for further surgery. Essentially, this method freezes and eliminates the cancer cells using liquid nitrogen.
I imagine I’m like most people in my position – I have been through the stages of denial and anger. I have also struggled endlessly to find the words I need to share and to ask for the help and support to raise funds for this potentially lifesaving treatment! If you’ve got to this point in my letter, I’d really like to thank you in advance for any support you might be able to give me. I’m extremely grateful for anything you can do, even if that means just sharing my appeal on to others.
