Former cancer sufferer Evelyn Ambrose from Whithorn will take part in this year’s Relay for Life in Bladnoch Park despite suffering further health setbacks.

She was diagnosed with diabetes in 2012 and has recently been told by doctors she is also battling kidney disease.

But brave Evelyn is as determined as ever to take her place alongside fellow cancer sufferers this weekend to help raise money for cancer charities.

She said: “I am never happier than when around people and, yes, when you are diagnosed with any illness it does touch everyone in that family that receives the harsh news.

“I just enjoy being here and my two cats and my music are my life. I just keep on smiling and if we keep going we will all beat this.”
