COFTON Hackett mum Katy Dawson is now two thirds of the way to her £50,000 target to get her potentially life-saving treatment in Germany.

The mum of two, who diagnosed with a rare form of breast cancer whilst heavily pregnant with her son Evan, has now reached £33,000 on her Go Fund Me page thanks to more than 750 donation from kind-hearted members of the public in just one month.

A big contribution – £2,639 – came from a coffee morning held by some of the mums at Lickey Hill Nursery where Katy’s daughter Aurelia attends and other donations have flooded in.

Jill Boeckx, Lisa Dancer, Tara Bloom, Lucy Gibbons and Karen Wood and Clare Millward sold cakes and raffle prizes to raise the much needed fund funds for the 36-year-old who is suffering from an extremely rare form of breast cancer.

Ms Bloom said: “The entire day was amazing. We even had people showing up first thing in the morning with envelopes of money saying ‘here’s my donation’.

“It is overwhelming how this has brought the community together. She really is such a lovely person and fingers crossed we can get her better.”

Donations have also continued to come in to the Standard which have been handed to the group of fund-raisers to be put towards the treatment.
