Cancer-fight mum to jet to US for treatment

A FAMILY from Tomatin are fundraising to help a young mum keep her boys by her side while she undergoes pioneering cancer treatment in the States.

So far almost £17,000 has been raised to help the family.

Former Milburn Academy pupil, Linda Halliday, was diagnosed with a rare form of spinal cancer after experiencing back pain for three years.

She said: I just thought I had sciatica, it was ongoing for three years, it was only after an MRI and my operation in February that we found out it was cancer – I had been seeing physiotherapists and chiropractors.

After extensive spinal surgery to remove as much of the tumour as possible without causing irreversible damage to her mobility, and months spent learning how to walk again, Mrs Halliday (33) must take a trip to Florida to undergo proton beam therapy or face spending her life in a wheelchair with a stoma bag.
