Help little Robyn in her fight against Neuroblastoma

Help Robyn Higgins fight Neuroblastoma and you could win a course of Hypoxi

Robyn Higgins was seven years of age when she was diagnosed with Stage 4 Neuroblastoma, a rare and aggressive form of childhood cancer.

The tumour was growing from her pelvis and had spread to her bone marrow. Robyn has endured extensive bouts of chemotherapy and treatment over the last few years including gruelling operations to remove the tumour. In January 2010, her parents took her to the USA to have intensive Immunotherapy treatment to prevent her from relaspe; this treatment is only available at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia – CHOP, USA.

Sadly, last month Robyn's parents' received the devastating news that Robyn has relasped. Here in the UK the chances of a cure is very low and the chemo that Robyn would be offered now would be a ‘holding’ chemo. But Lisa (Robyn's Mum) and Dad, Greg, know that this isn’t necessarily the case in other parts of the world. For most cancers the chances of survival drop significantly should relapse occur and they realise that. BUT they say ''That it is hard to ignore the children we know who have relapsed and have been treated back to NED (no evidence of disease) or who have relapsed and are being treated and who have a good quality of life''. One such case is a friend of Lisa's whose little boy is kept in check by a study drug called Millennium at CHOP.

It is imperative that more money is raised in order to help Robyn have this chance at 'a good quality of life' and this Bank Holiday Monday, the Hypoxi Therapy Centre on the Ewell Road, Surbiton opens for the first time. They are holding a special raffle in aid of Robyn (all proceeds to the Robyn Higgins Appeal http://robynhiggins.com) and two lucky winners will win two courses of 12 sessions on their Vacunaunt and Hypoxi Machines.

Hypoxi-Therapy (www.hypoxi-therapy-centre.co.uk) is a revolutionary weight loss beauty treatment which has been used by celebrities such as Robbie Williams and Cheryl Cole. Hypoxi burns fat and means that you can loose weight in those areas where normal exercise doesnt seem to shift it. It also banishes cellulite with long lasting results.

So come down on Monday between 11am and 3pm and see for yourself and you could be in with a chance of winning a course of Hypoxi sessions for just a £1 per ticket with all the proceeds going towards helping young Robyn Higgins plight.

NB A normal course of Hypoxi Therapy is £500 for a course of 12 sessions (over a month).
