A radiography aide who was minutes from her death is set to take on a gruelling trek across the Alps to raise funds for the Christie.
Emily Woodroofe, who works in the CT scanning department at The Christie NHS Foundation Trust, which is a specialist cancer centre in Manchester, plans to conquer three countries in three days.
Emily lost part of her right leg in 2016 while bouldering with friends in the Northwest Highlands of Scotland when a boulder fell on her.
After receiving life-saving treatment, Emily was soon back out in the hills only months after the accident.
She will conquer the Alps in September to raise funds for the department she works in.
Nearly 40 participants will participate in the trek which will go through Switzerland, Italy and France in just three days to raise money for a new 4D CT scanner.
