Have your say

Fundraising efforts to help a Stapleford toddler receive lifesaving treatment in America have had to be cancelled due to lack of support.

Two-year-old Bethany Topley, of Stapleford, was diagnosed with Rhabdomyosarcoma, a rare cancer, at just 11 months of age.

After undergoing six months of intensive chemotherapy and two operations, the NHS have now decided to send Bethany and her parents Paul Topley, 33, and Lesley Barsby, 23, out to Oklahoma City for radiotherapy - a course of treatment that is costing a reported £100,000-plus and could take up to 12 weeks.
