Bath woman with terminal cancer beats £20,000 fundraising goal in two days

Amy Mattingly’s diagnosis came after her baby boy was born stillborn at 24 weeks. After giving birth to Leo, the 32-year-old went on to have her entire bowel removed and was fitted with an ileostomy bag.

However Amy, who lives in Bradford-Upon-Avon but previously lived in Bath, was later given the devastating news that the cancer had spread to her liver. She was told she had just months to live .

But now the web designer, originally from Canada, has successfully raised more than £20,000 which will allow her to undergo a new form of radiotherapy which could extend her life.

The treatment, Selective Internal Radiation Therapy, involves injecting microbeads of radiation directly into the liver. It is not currently available on the NHS and costs around £20,000.
