The owner of a Doncaster cab firm has stepped in to help a family fighting to fund a revolutionary treatment for breast cancer.

Jann Saqlain, of Absolute Cabs in East Laith Gate, will be donating 10 per cent of all fares for next week, starting Sunday, plus the drivers’ rentals, to the Team Verrico appeal.

The appeal kicked off after mum Anna Verrico, 36, from Epworth, was told her cancer had spread throughout her body. Her treatment involves a new technique in which part of the tumour will be cloned 100 times to find the most effective chemotherapy drugs to fight the disease.

Jann said: “I was so touched when I heard the story. The family must be going through so much.”
