Friends and family are on a fundraising mission to help a young Tetford mum who is fighting a brain tumour having already defeated cancer once.

Becky Vines was diagnosed with the cancer in 2006 and underwent a major operation to remove the tumour later that year, amazing doctors with her recovery.

Unfortunately, last year Becky, 29, received the devastating news that the cancer had returned and she had to undergo a second operation.

Friends and family have responded by organising a fundrasing night. Her brother Dan is helping promote the The Becky Vines Benefit Night at Grand Central on Saturday, January 24. He said: “There is a new cancer treatment available, called Avastin, but it is extremely expensive and not provided on the NHS. Funds raised will go towards purchasing the drug if Becky’s course of chemotherapy is unsuccessful, any excess is being donated to Brain Tumour UK.

He added: “Becky is the bravest person I have ever met. She is just getting on with things and is trying to live a normal life.”

A former learning support assistant at Linkage Community Trust, Becky has a four-year-old daughter Phoebe.

The event starts 7.30pm and includes a disco, food, raffle and auction. Tickets, adults £10, under 12s £6 and under 2s free, are available at Allsorts, Lumley Road, Skegness.
