An author has raised £300 for Ward J93 at Leeds St James’s Hospital following sales of his book about living with cancer.

Michael Freeman’s release, Terminal One, is a collection of poetry and short excerpts of his story about being diagnosed with what was thought to be a variant of terminal cancer.

It later emerged that Mr Freeman’s tumour was treatable and following care on the ward, the cancer went into remission.

“I’m so thankful to the staff at St James’s for the wonderful care they provided following my diagnosis,” he said. “All money made from the book will go towards improvements on the ward.”
