This page has been set up in support for Franny & her three kids to help carry them through this tough journey they've been given.

Last year she endured treatments of Chemotherapy & Radiation but this was unsuccessful when a scan showed that the tumour had grown in size. Fran then turned to alternative therapies which included intravenous Vitamin C treatments, Rife & oscillator treatment and Ozone treatments along with completely changing her diet.

Fran has suffered three haemorrhages since December resulting in the need for numerous blood transfusions & emergency trips to the hospital. We were introduced to Dr Anna Goodwin, a specialist from Braemar Hospital, by Dr Twentyman in May. Dr Goodwin and her team arranged for Fran to try a different strength of Chemotherapy - also known as Pine Bark treatment - to try get the tumour under control so other options could be explored. Fran was able to have 4 treatments of this but at the beginning of July, at her follow up with Dr Goodwin, the family was told that unfortunately the treatments have not worked and the cancer is advancing.

After being in & out of Hospice, Fran is now on a pump to keep her pain under control. She has regular lymphatic massages as is also suffering from Lymphedema of the right leg due to the position of the tumour.

Dr Doering, who deals with advanced alternative medicines, has been recommended to Fran & the family. After seeing Dr Doering in July, Fran is currently undergoing Mistletoe injections every two days along with taking TBL 12. She will be starting GCMAF shortly which is a product from Switzerland & comes with a price tag of $4,000 for 6 weeks supply. If this treatment shows an improvement, Fran will continue on these injections for up to 12-18 months to completely clear the cancer.

As these treatments don’t come cheap and are not covered by health insurance, we are trying to raise money to cover these costs so Fran can focus solely on her treatment & getting better and to help support Fran, Zane, Joel & Jade through this so they have access to everything & anything they need.

Your love & support at this time is greatly appreciated.

Lets look after this beautiful family xx

Thank you xo
