Gravesend, Kent (PRWEB UK) 5 February 2013
Brave 7 year old Stacey Mowle has had cancer for a third of her life. Diagnosed in May 2010, when she was just 4, her parents were told that she had a rare and aggressive form of cancer called Neuroblastoma.
She then spent 18 months undergoing a harrowing regime of chemotherapy, radiotherapy, bone marrow transplants and blood transfusions.
In December 2011 the Mowle family received the news they had been longing for – scans revealed that Stacey’s cancer was in remission.
But Neuroblastoma is an aggressive cancer, with an 80% relapse rate, and although the family hoped beyond hope that Stacey would be one of the lucky few, their fears were realised just before Christmas last year.
Stacey’s cancer had returned and was even more aggressive than before. And with no hope for treatment in the UK, the family were faced with the prospect of raising nearly £500,000 to fund the year of potentially lifesaving treatment she needs in the USA or Germany.
DietAssist, are pledging £5 from all sales of their online weight loss programme made in February and have slashed the price of their programme to just £19.99 to make it affordable for as many people as possible to get involved.
Co-creator of the DietAssist programme, Rob Woodgate, says, "As a parent myself, Stacey Mowle's story is deeply moving, and the fact that she is in the same class as my son at school brings it even closer to home. We just felt we had to do something to help."
The DietAssist Programme is a 12 module online programme designed to help people who want to lose weight, but who find dieting hard work. It teaches people how to take control of their cravings so that slimming becomes easier and more successful.
DietAssist strengthens motivation and resolve and creates the optimum psychological state for dieting, and it works alongside any weight loss programme or sensible eating plan.
