THE FAMILY of a Hereford woman who died following a 10-month battle with a rare form of cancer has launched a fundraising campaign in her memory.

Bethan Davies, from Belmont, died in September aged just 20 after being diagnosed with a rare form of an already rare cancer, pheochromocytoma, in February this year.

Now her family and friends, including her mother Helen and older sister Gemma, have launched Beth’s Wish.

The campaign will run for 12 months and aims to raise a minimum of £100,000 to open a dedicated young person’s room at Bartestree’s St Michael’s Hospice.

A total of £4,500 has already been raised, including £1,000 in lieu of flowers at Bethan’s funeral.

The launch of the campaign came on what would have been Bethan’s 21st birthday, and her mother Helen believes her daughter would back their efforts all the way.

“If this means Beth didn’t die in vain and we get something good out of it, it would be just wonderful,” she said.

“We are blown away by the support we have received so far.”
