A dying mum has spoken from her hospital bed at The Christie – praising the care she has received but also appealing for help to save her life.
Angela Tattersall, 50, who has aggressive tumours throughout her body, has been given just months to live.
Her last chance is a pioneering treatment only available to her in Germany. Her family and friends have set up a page to raise the £100,000 she needs.
At first, Angela was reluctant to appeal to the public for money. But made redundant from her job as a research manager and unable to self-fund, she feels she has no choice if she wants to buy vital time with her husband, sons and grandchildren.
Speaking to the MEN from a ward at The Christie, where she has been an inpatient for the last three weeks, the grandmother-of-four from Stockport, said: “I want to thank The Christie, and say that you need to support this hospital after the fire, all that vital research and data gone. This place is a powerhouse, the best in the country and it’s here.
“Being treated here has meant extra time with my family, it’s given me four years I wouldn’t have had.
