AYOUNG can­cer fighter has launched a fundrais­ing cam­paign to thank the hos­pi­tal unit that saved her life.

Chloe Glover, 11, from Sale, is fundrais­ing for The Bone Mar­row Trans­plant Unit (BMTU) at Royal Manch­ester Chil­dren’s Hos­pi­tal.

The Wor­thing­ton Pri­mary School pupil had to en­dure chemo­ther­apy and a bone mar­row trans­plant af­ter be­ing di­ag­nosed with acute myeloid leukaemia.

She is now on the road to re­cov­ery af­ter leav­ing hos­pi­tal at the end of Jan­uary, and has al­ready gained sup­port for her cam­paign from her school and lo­cal busi­nesses.

Last month a team from Open­shaw-based Ham Baker Pipe­lines climbed Mount Toubkal, which at 13,671 feet is the high­est peak of the At­las Moun­tains in Morocco, to raise money for Chloe’s ap­peal.

The team was made up of Dar­ren Wood, John Wil­son, Phil Green and Sal Chat­ter­ton, who is mar­ried to Chloe’s teacher He­len Chat­ter­ton.

Chloe said: “Now that I am get­ting bet­ter, I would like to raise as much money as pos­si­ble for the BMTU, to help all the bril­liant doc­tors and nurses in my ward help all the other chil­dren to get bet­ter.”

Chloe’s head­teacher Clive Searle added: “It was a huge shock to us all when Chloe was di­ag­nosed. The chil­dren in her class have been think­ing about her con­stantly.

“To know that she has been re­ceiv­ing the best pos­si­ble med­i­cal care has been a great com­fort to us all.

“We can cel­e­brate her well­ness with this great fundrais­ing ef­fort from Sal Chat­ter­ton and his team mem­bers.”

Joel Oxberry, cor­po­rate fundrais­ing manager at the Royal Manch­ester Chil­dren’s Hos­pi­tal Char­ity, added: “De­spite ev­ery­thing that Chloe has been through, the fact that she is driven to help other poorly chil­dren is a true tes­ta­ment to her kind and thought­ful na­ture. Our young pa­tients are an in­spi­ra­tion to us.”
