Jodie McRae 'continues to fight each and every day'

FOUNDER of Jodie's Inspiration, Jodie McRae, is still fighting after finding out a week ago that she had only a few days to live.

The chairman of the charity, Jesse Smith, said: "Jodie continues to fight each and every day surrounded by her loving family and friends."

More than three years ago Jodie McRae's life changed when she discovered she had a rare form of breast cancer.

She underwent treatment but the cancer returned a year later.

It had spread everywhere in her body.

Since then she has been in an ongoing battle, maintaining a positive outlook the whole way through.

This year Ms McRae discovered the cancer had spread to her brain and her condition has gradually worsened.

Despite her situation she is still "Living Life Large" - the motto of Jodie's Inspiration.
