THE mum of a tragic young cancer victim wants to raise cash and help a devastated couple share more happy memories with their terminally ill daughter.
The heartbroken parents of young Paige Evans have been told medics can do more for their sick little girl, as reported in yesterday’s Mail.
The 23-month-old has battled a string of life-threatening illnesses that have left her blind and deaf.
Her parents, Bethany, 21, and Paul, 29, who moved from their home in the West View area of Hartlepool to Sunderland to be nearer Newcastle’s RVI Hospital, where Paige was treated, are now hoping to make the most of all of the time they have left with their daughter.
And Julie Bell, 43, the mum of Becky Bell, who lost her devastating battle with brain cancer in January 2012, aged just seven, is helping to raise money to fund Paige’s christening later this month and to send the family on a short holiday.
Julie, also a mum of Vicki, 25, and Mark, 13, has organised a fundraising evening to be held at the Hourglass pub, in Eaglesfield Road, Hartlepool, on Friday, April 4 from 7.30pm.
Julie, who is married to Mark, 38, said: “I know the pain Beth and Paul are going through right now and I just want to help them make the most of all of the time they have with Paige.”
Paige’s christening will be held at St Benet’s Church, in Monkwearmouth, Sunderland, at noon on Sunday, March 23.
Tickets for the fundraiser are priced at £3.
To buy tickets or to donate raffle and tombola prizes for the night call Julie on 07927 225542.
