Jeannie Branch, 46, is fighting back against cancer by determinedly fund-raising for the Greenwich & Bexley Family Hospice which has helped her through the darkest days of her life.

Ms Branch, from Sidcup, is helping to organise the ‘Girl’s Night Out’ pamper evening at Broadway Shopping Centre in Bexleyheath to raise money for the hospice.

Just under a year ago Ms Branch found a lump on her neck which was quickly removed, shortly afterwards she was diagnosed with the illness and the hospice was invaluable resource.

She said: “The hospice helped me through a lot emotionally and supported me with practical things like getting a Blue Badge for parking.”

It was a traumatic and turbulent time for the family but Jeannie’s condition is now under control although doctors have warned it may return.

She is remaining positive and looking forward to a future with her family, she said: “I’m having regular check-ups and I just pray I can live for another then years to see my youngest Polly all grown up.”

The ‘Girl’s Night Out’ will take place at Broadway Shopping Centre in Bexleyheath on Thursday March 27 from 6 to 8 pm.
