A Barnoldswick mum who has terminal cancer is writing dating tips for her husband.

37-year-old Sarah Reed married Lee last month and started compiling the list to help him move on after her death.

Sarah, who has a 10-year-old daughter, was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2015 and has now been told that the disease has spread to her brain and chest wall.

She'll decide over the next few weeks whether to continue with chemotherapy or have radiotherapy instead.

Sarah's words of advice

Sarah said: "I've come to terms with the fact that I'm very, very poorly. Lee is quite a young lad and I really want him to be happy.

"It took him a long while to come round to the idea, but he knows that this is my wish and what I want for him."

So, what would Sarah's message be for the next woman who makes Lee happy?

"You've got yourself a little gem there - he's so kind and caring. Please look after him."

Despite preparing for the worst, Sarah and Lee are trying to raise £180,000 to send her to Germany, where she hopes she can receive life-saving treatment.

Writing on her fundraising page, Sarah said: "I know that this is a lot to ask of people but I am desperate for any donation large or small to get me to the Hallwang clinic for treatment as I am needed as a mother, carer, daughter and wife and my family are devastated at the prospect of life without me.

"Parents should not bury their children and my child should not have to bury me at the young innocent age of 10."
