Deborah James: Most cancers campaigner thanks public for ‘most surreal’ days of her life as she says she is ‘getting weaker and extra drained’
Most cancers campaigner Deborah James has mentioned she’s had the “most surreal, mind-blowing, humbling 5 days” of her life after being made a dame and her fundraiser reaching greater than £5.7m.
The podcast host, who’s receiving hospice-at-home care to deal with her terminal bowel most cancers, thanked the general public for his or her “generosity” and the Duke of Cambridge for “going above and past”.
Prince William personally delivered Ms James’ damehood to her house in Surrey on Friday.
Writing in an Instagram submit, the 40-year-old, who is named Bowel Babe, mentioned: “I imagine I’ll have had probably the most surreal, mind-blowing, humbling 5 days of my life.
“I can not thanks to your generosity at launching the Bowel Babe fund which now stands at £5.7 million, and to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge for going above and past to make a really particular reminiscence occur yesterday.”
Nevertheless, the mother-of-two continued to say she is “getting weaker and extra drained” and is working on “pure adrenaline”.
“My household are being superb and as emotional because it all is, we’re discovering a lot to smile about within the disappointment,” she mentioned.
