In 2008 she was diagnosed with a malignant mole. In 2010 it came back in her armpit lymphnodes, it was cleared with surgery and radiotherapy but has now progressed to brain metastatis, 10 tumours and invasion of skull tissue.
Back in May 2010 Alethea started her blog - Me and Melanoma, her story starts with the day she found out.
Now she has found a doctor in Germany who can help her, but will need to raise 14,000 euros just for the treatment. She has been set up by her solicitors as a charity and the fund raising now begins. A facebook page has been set up with all the information, you can visit it here.
If you can it would be amazing if you could check out her site and make a donation, or maybe just leave a message of support.
