A YOUNG Bradford cancer patient who was trying to raise £100,000 for experimental treatment in Germany sadly passed away earlier this month.

Amy Meskiri, from Thornton, was told that her breast cancer had progressed to Stage 4 last Christmas, and the illness claimed her life last Thursday, just days after she had reached Germany for treatment.

The response to Amy's plight was phenomenal. A GoFundMe page for the 25-year-old had raised over £40,000, there were fundraising events for her right across Bradford and even a special home visit from Lord Mayor, Zafar Ali.

Despite the tragic news, family and friends are trying to leave a lasting legacy for Amy.

There is an event in her memory tomorrow from 2pm at the Rabbit Hole on Westgate in Bradford City Centre.

It was originally set up to raise funds for her treatment, but now that money will be going to other families needing funds for treatment abroad.

Kristy Littlewood, who organised the event, explained how she wanted to capture the feeling of Bradford by recruiting some original club DJ's from a time when the city had a thriving night life.

They are set to reunite for the first time since that era and they will be joined by some superstar DJ's, including the pride of Bradford. James Sammon, aka Pianoman.

K Klass, Tony Walker and Steve Luigi will also be there, with these DJ's desperate to give up their time to show love and support for Amy's family.

Ms Littlewood admitted that she was overwhelmed by how the DJ's had got on board and plugged the event, and she confirmed that Pianoman is even playing his new track for the first time for those in attendance.

Although the main entertainment will come later in the evening, the DJ sets begin with Richard Osadzenko from 2pm.
