Mark Nurthen

Mark Nurthen

Mark is 38, salesman and has two daughters. [1] Mark Nurthen is from Utley, West Yorkshire. He was diagnosed in 2011 with lung cancer. [1] He had rounds of chemotherapy but it wasn't enough to stop the cancer,the tumor returned a year later. They stopped providing his treatment because it is not 'considered a cost effective use of NHS resources'. The only option remaining is a drug called Nivolumab which is twice as effective compared to chemotherapy.

'It's basically a nightmare. You wake up every morning and it's like Groundhog Day,' he said. 'It's not the best to be honest with you.'

Marks celebrity friend, Kimberly Walsh tweeted: My dear friend @nurthy1 needs life saving treatment. If all my followers gave £5 we could make a huge difference https://t.co/cKJycstG1u
