Cassie’s Previous Medical History
A well-known Southport radio host who was given just six months to live by doctors says she is “devastated, heartbroken, and afraid.” Cassie James, who has cancer in her skin, leg, lungs, and breast, has one chance to live longer: she must earn enough money for an expensive treatment in Israel that is unique but works. This treatment will cost £120,000.
Friends have now established a fundraising page on the Just Giving website where people may give to help the 60-year-old mother of two children.
Cassie, a radio presenter on Mighty FM, said: “I had the shock of my life phone call from the hospital Clatter bridge consultant on July 13th saying: “I have six months to live. I have just been told that I now need specialist treatment for me to continue living. This treatment is only available in Israel, at £120,000. I am devastated, heartbroken, and scared.
Devastated, heartbroken, and scared
“The funding is for treatment that is not provided in this nation, which could save my life.” The information and advice for this treatment have been sent to me by my wonderful Clatter bridge team, but regrettably, I do not have that type of money.
“I have breast cancer as well, but there is currently no illness evidence, so it’s not done in the UK for someone like me. When I go outside, I require a wheelchair because I can no longer walk properly.
Due to having two separate types of cancer, I am unable to participate in a trial. I realize this is unjust.
“she is doing all-natural and alternative treatments to try to keep the progression at bay and slow it down as far as possible. I am one of only two people in the UK in this situation. “Time is of the essence now to get the money to get me to Israel to try to save my life. The cost is approximately going to be around £120,000 which includes the TILS and any other medication they think I will need.
Gone through a Lot of Pain
Cassie had to have the melanoma removed from the bottom of her foot just before starting radiation for her breast cancer. She was on crutches for more than four months and had to receive radiation for her breast cancer at the same time, just after finishing chemo for the disease.
She was informed that she had melanoma in her groin a year after the melanoma on the bottom of her foot was removed. Ten nodes had to be removed from Cassie’s crotch and she had to undergo surgery. She was left with severe lymphedema agony as a result.
Despite her pain and her grueling challenges, Cassie continued to work as a volunteer radio presenter for local community radio station Mighty Radio in Southport. During the lockdown, she was an amazing support for the community of Southport as she kept the listeners informed of all the local businesses that were trading and doing deliveries, as well as highlighting others who needed support.
Fiona Aldred from Mighty FM said: “The community of Southport is very proud of Cassie and despite all that she has gone through she has worked and continues helping and supporting the community.”
Mighty FM Station Manager Paul Tasker said: “Cassie has been at Mighty from the very start. Since we launched on FM, she has worked every day and given up her time every day to commit to her radio show. She has even worked around her hospital appointments for her to still do radio shows from home. On odd occasions, she has done radio shows from her hospital bedside. She is so dedicated to her work.
