Dame Deborah James ‘saved my life from bowel cancer’

A mother-of-three has told how Dame Deborah James helped save her life from deadly bowel cancer. Lyndsey Ainscough, 40, from Leigh in Greater Manchester, was diagnosed with serious stage 3 cancer after suffering symptoms for several months. The secondary school attendance manager only sought help after seeing campaigner Dame Deborah on TV in the weeks before her death on June 28, 2022 – two years ago this week.
