LUCKY DIP: Pinner woman hosts fundraising raffle for sister’s cancer treatment

 Published on: 5th December 2022   |   By: Darius Morgan   |   Category: Uncategorized

A loving sister has raised tens of thousands of pounds to pay for potentially life-extending cancer treatment.

Since her sister, Claire, was diagnosed with incurable brain cancer in January this year, Lisa Smith has instigated numerous fundraising campaigns to pay for pioneering yet expensive treatment.

Lisa, who works in Pinner and has lived in the area for many years, has so far raised more than £30,000.

She is now hosting a fundraising raffle, with the draw to take place on December 7. Prizes include tea for two at the House of Commons and a bottomless brunch at the Star in South Harrow.

When Claire received her diagnosis, she was given a life expectancy of just two years. With the help of the community, Lisa hopes to be able to pay for immunotherapy treatment which Claire will need to go abroad for, as it’s not currently available on the NHS for her type of cancer.

Lisa said: “With cancers like hers, there are new promising treatments currently emerging that can be used in conjunction with conventional chemo/radiotherapy and if successful they can help to extend life expectancy.

“Claire’s son has just turned 10 and it is heart-breaking to think of him having to grow up without his mum. Claire just wants any extra time she can get with her beautiful boy; I’m sure any parents could understand this feeling.”

To order tickets for the raffle, email Lisa at Deadline for entry is 9am, December 7.
