A Billingshurst cancer sufferer hopes her story will raise awareness of her condition and inspire people to become bone marrow donors.

Lucy Hart, who lives in Station Road with her partner Guy, was diagnosed with acute myeloid dysplasia, which is a precursor to leukaemia, after a routine blood test to investigate bruising and swelling on her finger earlier this year.

Since then she has undergone chemotherapy and is being admitted to Southampton General Hospital on Tuesday for a bone marrow transplant thanks to her sister Jane.
