About Angel


Angel lives in Blackpool with her Mum and two brothers, she currently attends Unity Academy and is 14 years old.

In April 2014 , she was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour.Following treatment at Alder Hey Childrens Hospital in Liverpool, we travelled to America for Proton Beam Therapy.

Angel spent most of ย that summer Jacksonville, Florida receiving treatment at The University of Florida Proton Institute.

This site is predominately used to publish regular blog posts which keep family and friends (both at home in England and whom we have met in America) updated while I am away or in hospital.

A little about Angel…

My favorite color is pink, and if I had to pick a mastermind subject it would probably be Tracy Beaker. I LOVE watching Tracy Beaker!

I like doing gymnastics, loom bands, and dancing. I also play the flute… I’ve passed my bronze and silver and I’m currently working towards my gold now.

Since being home from America, I no longer attend gymnastics, but I’m learning to play the Saxophone. I follow MMA and Cage fighting, and frequently visit Blackburn to stay with Elaine and watch her cousin fight for his team.


My website and Fundraising will be managed and maintained by Elaine Bamford, who is travelling I with my Mum and to America.

If you have any questions, would like to make a donation – either in England or America please contact Elaine.
