Inspired by a number of people who are giving their time to try and raise the awareness of illnesses and raising funds that will make huge differences to individuals and their families, and ultimately save lives, I decided I had to do something to try and help. My family have been touched (or probably more accurately described as 'blown away') by a cancer that most people have never heard of ....NEURO ENDOCRINE TUMOURS, commonly referred to as NETs.
NETs are a rare form of cancer, sadly without any cure. If caught at an early stage, some can be removed surgically but more often than not, because they are difficult to diagnose and sometimes have no or few symptoms, they are not found until a much later stage when often they have spread to other parts of the body.

You can read for more details about how it has affected our family, but a few months ago we came across a chink of hope that, like all living things do, we are clinging on to...work towards treatment that means you can carry on LIVING your life by managing the condition.
As this form of cancer is rare, it can be difficult to attract funding and I have been amazed at how the efforts of a handful of people have springloaded such a wonderful campaign to raise funds to accelerate the research being carried out in a Univeristy in Sweden. Read more
So taking a leaf out of their book, this is my own mini campaign to try and gather more attention and ultimately attract more funds to go towards the research.
every grain of sand.........
.......and time is ticking....
***Help with our campaign - we need 1 million people to DONATE £1 - donate yours today and then spread the word***
A typical day in a typical family life:
but for my 5 children, this time is limited
because I have an 'untypical' cancer, without a typical cure
BUT there could be one, sitting on a shelf waiting for that 'untypical' funding
and if every person who had read my story had donated something small,... even just £1...it could already be on its way to giving back many, many typical days to many, many typical families.
Please help, it really does make a difference!
MUM!...its not fair!
