Fundraisers hope their football-themed social evenings with former West Ham United and Tottenham Hotspur legends will help towards the treatment of Dagenham cancer sufferer Rebecca Warren in the US.

Rebecca Warren, 31, of Goresbrook Road, Dagenham, has a brain tumour and three tumours in her spine and she’s endured several bouts of gruelling radiotherapy.

Sadly, in November, the mother-of-three was told there was nothing more they could do.

However, she hopes specialist treatment in the States, costing £250,000, will save her. Around £9,000 has been generated so far.

Speaking recently to the Post, her sister Jakki, 41, said: “Rebecca is such a caring and loving person.

“To be struck down with this illness has been devastating.

“The community spirit and the generosity of friends, family and people we do not know has been overwhelming.”
