A BARNSLEY lass whose dad is suffering from an inoperable brain tumour is hoping to raise money for the charity which has prolonged his life.

In April 2013, Amy Binney's dad, Frank67, was diagnosed with the illness, but due to an intense bout of radiotherapy his condition has sadly worsened.

The annual Great Yorkshire Run - which follows a 10km route through the streets of Sheffield - attracts thousands of people.

Amy, 22, of Sheffield Road, is already in training. She said: "I can't run to save my life, but that's all going to change so I can raise as much money as possible for this amazing charity.

"I thought I had to take on all the responsibility myself but Macmillan showed me that I didn't. They've offered incredible support and helped out getting my dad into Water Royd Nursing Home.

"Because of them he now has the 24-hour care he needs and I get to spend my last days with him - only enjoying his company instead of struggling."
