Mel was diagnosed with Cancer, and underwent treatment and the Cancer was in remission.
Sadly, things have taken a turn for the worst and Mel recently received the news that not only has the Cancer returned, but that it is now incurable and she has been given just a year to live.
Mel is determined to fight this thing, but unfortunately (like many of us) does not have the funds to subside this.
Subsequently, a fund has been set up in order to help Mel with funding travel and treatment abroad (which doesn’t come cheap) and to make what time she has left more comfortable for both her and her family.
One of the things Mel would like to do is to go to Thailand to hug the tigers, and it is hoped that enough funds can be raised not only to help her explore possible treatment overseas, but to facilitate this dream.
More details with regards to this, and how you can help by making a donation (no amount too big or small) can be found on Mel’s MySpace profile http://www.myspace.com/_lucyfur_
If there’s anything you feel you can to help, please contact Mel as I’m sure she’d appreciate any help that you may be able to provide.
