Mum organises ball for Mylo’s hospital
firstname.lastname@example.org A mum who has raised thousands for charity after her son beat cancer is set to boost the figure even higher with a celebration ball.
Sally Heckle, 37, has been a tireless supporter of Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) since her son Mylo Mellor was treated there after being diagnosed with neuroblastoma when he was just four months old.
Following a hospital stay for bronchitis the family received the devastating news that a tumour had been discovered growing from the nerve endings in Mylo’s spine and pushing into the wall of his lungs.
Mum-of-four Sally from Bodsham witnessed first hand the amazing work GOSH do and since then has completed the Inca trail, run marathons and collected more than £70,000 for the world famous children’s hospital.
Now, as Smeeth Primary pupil Mylo celebrates five years of being cancer free, personal trainer Sally is looking forward to marking the occasion by holding a summer ball at Lympe Castle on Saturday evening.
Family friend Carla Dooley said: “Sally organises one every year but because this is Mylo’s 5th year cancer free it makes this one particularly special.
“Sally has also just completed the Ibiza cycle ride with her boyfriend Spencer and I’m sure has more stuff lined up, the woman doesn’t stop.
“She doesn’t get the recognition she deserves for everything she does. I don’t think she realises how amazing she is.”
Sally has also been an ambassador for GOSH.
“This role includes organising fundraising activities, representing the charity, meeting and thanking supporters of the charity and helping to spread the word about the hospital’s work.
