Mother’s lung cancer inspires family to organise fund-raiser
Wednesday 1st June 2011, 11:30AM BST.
A MOTHER diagnosed with lung cancer has spoken of her pride that her children have organised a charity walk to raise both money and awareness.
Dee Machan, 60, was diagnosed in early April and since then her three children, Naomi, 21, and Nathan Coates, 24 and Katie Lewell, 36, have focused their energy on the event, which is in June.
Mrs Machan is amazed and humbled by what they are doing to help.
‘Youngsters are often wrapped up in their own lives but they’ve made this commitment and stuck to it so I’m very proud,’ she said.
* The walk from Bulwer Avenue to Salerie Corner starts at 11am on Sunday.
