Survivor holds Christie fundraiser in Knutsford
A KNUTSFORD bowling club will play host to a charity fundraiser this weekend, organised by a woman who fought the odds to beat cancer.
Northwich resident Emma Jazkow’s life was turned upside 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, now hopes to thank the hospital that treated her by holding a coffee and cake sale at Crosstown Bowling Club.
“The service and support I received from the Christie was fantastic and made such a difference to my recovery,” said Emma.
“Nothing was too much for the staff and they worked hard to ensure 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.”
Emma’s coffee and cake sale will take place at the Chelford Road bowling club 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 some wonderful prizes for a raffle and tombola.”
The event is from 11am to 2pm.
