Crick­eter leg chop ap­peal

Daily Mirror - - NEWS -

A DIS­ABLED Eng­land crick­eter is rais­ing cash – to have his leg am­pu­tated.

Rob Franks, 39, had two bone tu­mours re­moved, but nerve dam­age has left him in con­stant pain.

The dad-of-three, who played cricket six times for Eng­land’s dis­abled team, needs £15,000 for an op not funded by the NHS.

Rob, of Poole, Dorset, said: “I don’t want to be in pain, a pri­vate am­pu­ta­tion is my only hope.

“I hon­estly can’t de­scribe the pain I’m in all day.”
