Paula's immunotherapy fund

Hello my name is Paula Davis, I'm a 38 year old mum to four children aged 3, 5, 7 & 9.  In December 2015 I had what I thought was a running injury in my left thigh, but after numerous doctor visits with the pain steadily getting worse I ended up sitting in the A&E department at the local hospital.  That hospital visit led to a scan in early April 2016, which showed I had a mass in my left psoas muscle.  After further CT scans, MRI's and two biopsies, in June 2016 I was told I have a stage 4 cancer of unknown primary (squamous cell carcinoma).

The prognosis isn't good, and I was told they can try to manage the cancer but they cannot cure it.  I have since undergone two courses of Chemotherapy neither of which has worked and the tumour has continued to grow and has now spread to my pelvic bone.  I have also undergone Radiotherapy with the aim of trying to contain it, but this also appears to have been unsuccessful.

All the while I have been told by different oncologists that if immunotherapy was funded on the NHS they would prescribe it to me because it is showing fantastic results against the type of cancer I have.  It seems that going private and paying for immunotherapy is now our only option, but the cost of this is around £103,000 per year.  Being a normal family we just don't have that kind of money and whilst we're using what we have, we need help!  Anything you can donate would be gratefully accepted, anything to give me the chance to see my children grow up.




Thank you for taking the time to read this, and please share it with everyone you know as even the price of a cup of coffee would help.   All donations would be very gratefully received.
