UPDATE: The first stage of integrative medical treatment at Sanoviv for Katheryn has been very effective and much progress has been made. However Katheryn is still dealing with full time medical care and huge debts remain.

The second stage of treatment will begin soon. This tips the odds and gives Katheryn the best chance to fight this rare cancer and return to a normal life.

Please contribute if you can, whatever you can, and share on social media widely!Anything you can do will be an enormous help. Thank you.

"Hope is a verb with its sleeves rolled up."
David Orr
Katheryn Trenshaw's life changed overnight when she was diagnosed with a very hard to detect form of Breast Cancer. A passionate, playful, insightful workshop leader and colorful artist with a seventeen year old son, Katheryn is tall and fit with wild hair. She is a vigorous bike rider, kayaker and swimmer and she now has only a slim chance of surviving the next ten years.

Katheryn is one of those irrepressible people who dives in and rolls up her sleeves. If she cannot raise the money to receive alternative treatment we all loose a compassionate and courageous woman who has created beauty out of all her life challenges.

Katheryn has had a mastectomy with complications, and the diagnosis is advanced stage invasive lobular breast cancer, which is rare and hard to treat. The drugs and treatments that are most effective, with the least side effects, against this cancer are Hyperthermia and Cancer fighting intensive IV treatments, which are incredibly expensive, and unfortunately, in the UK, these are not available. Without these treatments the prognosis is not good, 93% die within ten years. With them the cancer could be cleared, and with almost no side effects. The best and least expensive option is for Katheryn to continue her care by returning for more tests and treatment to Sanoviv Hospital in Baja California, Mexico.

This needs to happen as quickly as possible. Please help Katheryn pay for her treatment.

“I strongly recommend that Katheryn goes to the Sanoviv Hospital as soon as possible. In my opinion she has the best possible treatment with the best prognosis there and the staff there will take care of her in so many different aspects that she can relax and be with her healing process in an optimal way. She will need a lot of money for that. Please help her if you can.”
-Ulrike, Consultant & Gynecologist

HOLDING HANDS by Jane Pujji

All you ever need do is hold my hand
you don't have to carry me

When I fall
I need to find my own way up
all you need do is lend me your reassuring hand

When I have rubbed myself raw, struggling against life
I just need the gift of your soothing hand
to hold while I find my way through

And when I am wild with passionate blame
convinced you are wrong
don't fight me or leave me
sit with me and hold my hand

When I am confused, you don't need to fix me
I need to recognise my own knowing
And when I am tired take my hand and show me to my bed

When I believe myself broken and beg you to carry me
refuse, and offer me your loving hand
I will remember my wholeness

Please don't try to carry me
I need to feel my feet on this solid earth
All you ever, ever need do
is walk with me and simply hold my hand
