A courageous grandma who is battling cancer for the second time is fighting back by entering Race for Life in a bid to fund research into the condition.

Doreen Rigby, aged 64, is taking on the challenge with her team Doreen’s Divas, and is urging others to sign up for the 5k event which takes places at the Town Fields in Doncaster on June 29.

Mum-of-two Doreen was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 1997 but, in January this year, 17 years after she first beat the disease, she was told the cancer had come back - and this time it had spread to her bones.
