Belinda's Cancer Treatment

Belinda is a caring daughter, a mum of three beautiful kids, wife to a loving husband, devoted sister and a Nanna to three aborable Grandbabies. She's gorgeous, positive, intelligent and thoughtful, and she's also  battling cancer. She's 48.

Belinda was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer, Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma 4 years ago. Initially, the disease presented under her tongue, half of which she had removed. It then spread into her lungs and the pace slowed, until recently. The cancer is now in her breast bone, spine and lymph. Everyday is a struggle, with debilitating pain, and a mind battling, not to be wracked with, fear for the future. 

Now... you'd think that this recent news would have crushed Belinda, flattened her - already devastated - personality into a gibbering pancake... but it hasn't. She might admit that she's low and scared, in a quiet voice, but the moment soon passes. 

I spoke to her today and she talked about her family, her friends, her need to keep them positive, to keep them going, her need to stay alive for them. The selflessness knocked me sideways. Where does she find this strength? Well, it's innate. It's quiet. It's frightened, but fiesty.

Re. Us band of girls... the daft thing can't believe that a group of former work colleagues would take the time to want to help. Cancer has knocked her self-image, her confidence, her hope out of her, but she still worries about those that love her, and she is amazed that people care enough about her. Well... we are not amazed. She's the kindest hearted, most giving person and her positivity and willingness to uplift everyone, hasn't gone un-noticed.

So, here we are, cap in hand, asking for funds to help with treatments not available on the NHS. The NHS have run out of ideas, but we know that with the right help, Belinda stands a good chance of beating this. Strong efficacy Vitamin C shots, good quality CBD oil, organic food and produce, to keep her as healthy as possible, while she battles this cancer, is what is needed. 

Nicola Hembry, a Doctor in Bristol offers blood tests to see if any natural compounds can positively affect the cancer that Belinda has. These are sent off to Greece, and any positive hits could be backed up with natural treatments here on home soil. Belinda has also contacted 2 hospitals abroad   that offer treatments and regimes, that would be beneficial and is waiting to hear back from them. These treatments are ground-breaking. They could make all the difference to her quality of life and offer her a real fighting chance to stay with her children and loved ones for much longer. Updates to follow. 

There is also the natural Doctor in Harley Street - his practice can provide supplements to support her while fighting this awful cancer. There are so many options and none should be out of reach.  All of these options are solid and are getting good results, and after all... Anything to give her a chance at life and seeing those Grandbabies grow is more than worth the effort.

Cancer needn't be the end. It has to be said that B was mortified that we wanted to help raise money for her treatment. She's embarrassed! Can you believe that? Life is priceless, darling, and the sky is the limit.

All these treatments cost a bomb, and Belinda and her family are at the end of what they can afford. She has felt too embarrassed to ask for help, and has been quietly dealing with the worry, and the tantalising prospect of alternative treatments, thinking they were beyond her grasp... But they aren't.  And here's where you can help.

Please give us a hand to help raise enough money to send Belinda for the treatments that could make all the difference. Any pennies help!!!

For those of you that truly believe in natural medicine, here is your chance to help prove it, and those that just have pure faith, imagine the difference that knowing you're not out of options would make to a worried and broken heart.

Bit heavy... yep... but why not? 

The truth is, B is out of options, with mainstream meds and we refuse to leave it there. No matter how teeny the help, it all adds up. 

We can't thank you enough for taking the time to read this.

With love and thanks, 

Tracey, Tracy, Donna, Debbie, Lisa, Dee, Anna, Rachel, Jenny,  Sue, Lu, Emma, Christine, Kirsten and all the 'Formers' xxx
