Mum who survived cancer says 'thank you' to hospital
A NORTHWICH woman who fought the odds to beat cancer is holding a coffee and cake sale to say ‘thank you’ to the hospital that treated her.
Emma Jazkow’s life was turned upside down in January when she was diagnosed with stage three ovarian cancer but thanks to the support of The Christie, the 37-year-old’s three month check up came back clear.
The mother-of-one, who underwent a full hysterectomy and six chemotherapy sessions, said: “The service and support I received from the Christie was fantastic and made such a difference to my recovery.
“Nothing was ever too much for the staff and they worked so hard to ensure that my chemotherapy session was as comfortable as possible.”
The Manchester-based hospital also provided day courses to help boost the tenancy support worker’s confidence and self esteem.
“It was also a great opportunity to meet other women who were also experiencing the effects of having cancer,” added Emma, who lives with partner Andrew and five-year-old daughter Imogen.
“I finished my treatment in July and have recently had my three month check up which has come back clear.”
As a thank you to the Christie, Emma has decided to hold a cake and coffee event at Knutsford’s Crosstown Bowling Club on Chelford Road on Sunday, November 3.
“I would like to raise around £150,” she said.
“Barclays Bank have also agreed to double whatever I make.
“My friends and family are going to be baking cakes to sell and I have also been donated some wonderful prizes for a raffle and tombola.”
The event will run from 11am until 2pm.
