Down but not out!


I am so angry I could smash something,hit something, crush something!

Any of you that have read my blog before know that my Mum is battling Cancer! She started with a Tumour in her Ureter and endured a massive life saving surgery where they removed it and her kidney! I was so proud of how she took the challenge head on, sometimes feeling like she couldn’t take a second more!

She was then told she has Cancer in her bladder! A massive blow! But as she is young, there is a treatment that has proven effective! BCG is inserted through a catheter directly to the site! So she went every week for 6 weeks and took the pain and the distress to be told it hasn’t worked! Not to worry, we’re told! It often takes two lots. So here she is waiting to have the final dose when we are hit with the almighty blow… They have run out! Excuse me? Ran out and none until 2013! 

Ok I thought she’s had 5 maybe that’s enough?! No, apparently not, all that she’s been through, means jack shit!

The only option available is to put her through a massive surgery to remove her bladder and her uterus! A life changing surgery! But hopefully a life saving surgery! All because the factory has ran out of the medicine!

We are not alone in this debacle! Not that it makes it any easier,but 200 other people will also need bladder removal to save their life!

You may be confused and think we’re from a third world Country, but no, this is all taking place in the former super power… England! God help us!
