Sharon Fox starts Staffordshire cancer treatment centre

BBC Inside Out presenter Mary Rhodes finds out more about Sharon Fox's dedicated cancer treatment centre in Tamworth

Sharon Fox from south Staffordshire has become an inspirational woman for many other cancer sufferers.

In 2009, aged just 38, the mother of seven was diagnosed with breast cancer.

But even after radiotherapy, a double mastectomy and months of chemotherapy, Sharon also set up a centre in Tamworth for other people living with cancer.

The Sharon Fox Cancer Centre, which helps anyone affected by the disease, is run entirely by donations and volunteers.

Inside Out, the BBC Midlands documentary programme, went to meet her and see the centre.
