Debra McNaughton, 38, was the winner of the Pride of the Isle’s 2015 Most Inspirational Award. The mum of three has been diagnosed with terminal cancer and her eldest son Connor, 18, is being treated for testicular cancer.
A Pride of Isle campaign to raise cash to help Connor fight his cancer quickly realised its target of £2000. Debra was first diagnosed with cancer in April 2012. Following extensive surgery and chemotherapy she was given the all-clear two years ago, However, early last year it was confirmed her cancer had returned.
How Pride of the Isle has worked to help create happy memories:
The committee funded a Legoland, Windsor visit for the McNaughton family to celebrate Oliver’s fourth birthday. She sadly lost her battle with cancer shortly after.
Conner, Debs’ 18 year old son was given funding to help with a start in life without his Mum.
