Teacher who lost her ear to skin cancer holds fundraising ball for The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre

A newly qualified teacher who lost her ear to skin cancer is holding a fundraising night for the Hospital where she was treated. Lauren McFerran, 22, has already raised more than £1000 for The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity through donations and ticket sales for the event, on 14 January 2016. She now hopes to collect even more money on the night through a raffle and auction for over 70 prizes including football boots worn by Everton captain Phil Jagielka, a Jurgen Klopp signed Liverpool cap, a 43 inch Phillips Android TV and vouchers from retailers like Amazon and Next.

Lauren, from New Brighton, had never used a sunbed and wasn't a fan of sunbathing, when she was diagnosed with melanoma. She f1st realised she had a problem when she went to have her ear pierced. Surgery followed and eventually her right ear was removed. Specialist staff at The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre NHS Foundation Trust arranged her radiotherapy treatment around her university studies and Lauren qualified as a teacher earlier this year. She took just 14 days off to recover from the operation to remove her ear and carry out skin grafts.

Inspirational Lauren is now teaching in a nursery school in Chester. She said:- "I received the most incredible support from The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre, which has proven invaluable. Clatterbridge are currently fundraising with a target of £15 million to help towards their new cancer Hospital which will be opening in Liverpool City Centre in 2019. It will include a specialist unit for young people, something that is very close to my heart. Having cancer can be a very isolating experience for young people and having a facility especially for teenagers and young adults is essential for helping them cope with treatment. I am hoping that the event raises lots of money for the charity and that people really get behind the night to support something that has become a massively important part of my life. There will be tiered raffles and an auction on the night, with prizes to suit everybody. It is looking to be a night not to be missed."

To buy tickets for the ball, on 14 January 2016, at The Poulton Victoria Sports and Social Club, for £5 each, see TCT and CCC Charity Ball, on Facebook, or contact Lauren McFerran, via Facebook.
