Nicola Coates, 35, loses her brave battle with leukaemia.
COURAGEOUS Nicola Coates has lost a 23-year battle for life after being stricken by leukaemia for the fifth time.
The 35-year-old – who was given a life-saving bone marrow transplant by an American newspaper editor in 2000 after The Press ran a campaign to find a donor – died suddenly in hospital after suffering liver failure caused by the leukaemia.
This is a story of a lady who never gave up the fight for the most precious thing that any of us has...our life.
Many would have quit long before Nicola did, but her determination must serve as inspiration to all of us who are fighting this disease.
