Thank you for helping Hege

Friday 25 November 2016

In a world-first, our researchers have found a drug that offers new hope to patients like Hege.

Please donate this Christmas to help turn our breakthrough into a lifesaving treatment.

When Hege found out she had a breast cancer, she was terrified for her two young boys. But even then, she had no idea what she and her family would have to go through.

Hege has Triple Negative breast cancer, one of the most aggressive and hardest forms to treat.

Her doctors attacked it from every possible angle: a mastectomy, then months of intensive chemotherapy and radiation.

But just months after finishing her treatment, the cancer was back in Hege's lymph nodes. Another gruelling round of radiation followed. As Hege was recovering, she had a seizure and was rushed to hospital.

There doctors gave Hege more devastating news: she had a tumour in her brain.

Our researchers are looking at how an existing drug could make it easier to beat cancers like Hege's.

Click here now to help fund an exciting clinical trial of this drug next year.

You can make a real difference for people like Hege, who are running out of options and time.

Please, give generously this Christmas to help keep people like Hege with the people who love them.
