A year ago young mum Laura Hymas and her husband Ben were in despair. She had just been diagnosed with a brain tumour and doctors in this country had said there was little they could do.
But the couple could not believe nothing really could be done and after a search they discovered a clinic in the States that could help.
The treatment was controversial and some critics claimed it would be a waste of time – but they launched an amazing fund-raising drive. And through an enormously successful Twitter and Facebook campaign – as well as coming to Featureworld, which got their story into the DAILY MIRROR and BELLA magazine – they managed to raise the thousands needed for the treatment.
So it’s heartening to read on their blog, Hope For Laura, that Laura’s recent brain scan shows the tumour has now reduced to what GPs believe is a small cavity.
In the latest April update, husband Ben writes: “Laura’s feeling really good apart from a sinus infection which is unrelated to the tumour or medication, so the plan for now is to just keep going and continue the daily doses of antineoplaston medication!
We wanted to thank everyone for recent events and future fundraising efforts being made to keep Laura on this treatment because it is working so well for her!”
