 After Spending £50,000, Breast Cancer Victim Told She is All Clear
Suzie Grogan spent £50,000 living life king size after her breast cancer diagnosis in August 2006. She tried to live each day as if it was her last, but was in for a rude shock when she was told she no longer had the cancer.

"When I walked out of the consultant's room that day my sister was in the waiting room and I just said to her 'I'm fine - I've been given the all-clear,'" Mrs Grogan said. "The next morning I woke up not thinking about cancer for the first time in two years. Some of the things we spent money on may look a bit silly, but they were for all the family to cheer them up."

The Grogans spent £10,850 on holidays to Barcelona, Prague, Rome and Liechtenstein. They also spent £15,000 on home improvements and an equal amount on new cars.

Now after being given all clear, Mrs Grogan, a charity worker, is working two jobs to support her son at the university and her daughter through school and college.

"To help fund things we even released the equity in our house. I was behaving like a lottery winner, except I'd never won the lottery," Mrs Grogan said.

It is most unfortunate to spend so much money 50,000 Sterling Pounds just to confirm that one is free from breast cancer.
If a poor, middle class woman wants to know, if she has breast cancer, where from shall she get such huge sums of money. Leaving aside the depth of depression/frustration, agony, the idea to perceive the cost of treatment for breast cancer is unimaginable.
