Helen holds out hope.
TV sports presenter Helen Rollason has said she has come to terms
with death as she battles cancer - but worries about the impact on her
15-year-old daughter. And the Grandstand star said she still holds out
hope for a cure as she continues her fight, despite being given only
months to live earlier this year. She said: "I don't fear
death - I fear the carnage I'll leave behind in the sense of an
emotionally-stunned child." And she revealed it was the need to be
around for her daughter Nikki which spurred her to carry on with
debilitating chemotherapy treatment. Ms Rollason, aged 42, was diagnosed
with cancer of the colon and liver last year. She has had two operations
on her colon and in March her surgeon Mr Myrddin Rees hoped to
regenerate the liver. However, the disease had inflicted too much damage
and the operation was called off. A special BBC programme about her
fight against cancer, Hope For Helen, is being screened on BBC1 on
Tuesday October 27.
