Mum's pounds 2,000 thanks.

A WOMAN who recovered from breast cancer has raised pounds 2,000 to donate to the ward where she was treated.

Rita Faries, aged 54, of Keresley, was treated at Walsgrave Hospital after cancer was diagnosed a year ago.

The mother-of-three said: "Although the diagnosis came as a bombshell, I was quite confident from the outset that I was going to beat it. I stayed positive, especially because it had been caught early, and I received fantastic care from the doctors and nurses at the Walsgrave Hospital."

Local businesses including the Bakers Dozen in Leyes Lane, Kenilworth, donated raffle prizes. The money will go towards a new pounds 70,000 scanner, which helps breast screening.
