Vicki’s mum Sue Morton told Blog Preston: “Vicki is not one to be in the limelight but feels she wants to celebrate this milestone. 

“She really wants to ‘give something back’, as apart from two overnight stays at The Christie all her treatment was at The Rosemere Cancer Unit.

“Vicki is doing great and was the strongest ever through her treatment. She had amazing support from her husband Mick, who was with her every step of the way. Her son Kane, who was only eight when she was diagnosed, was also a great support to his parents.

“We are all tremendously proud of Vicki who just hit all the treatment head on and came out the other side.”

Vicki has so far raised £1,000 in sponsorship money, and is hoping to reach £3,000. To donate, visit JustGiving. Find out more about the Foundation on the Rosemere website.
