"Denise Maguire has been designated an official “Beacon of Hope” – for her extraordinary fight against the cancer that has invaded almost EVERY part of her body.
The former barrister and university lecturer from Parkgate received a Special Commendation from the Lymphoma Association for inspiring scores of other
cancer patients, while suffering so much herself.
Denise, 48, was diagnosed with advanced lymphoma in January last year.

Weston Park Hospital literally cartwheeled down the ward.”"
