Charity ball organised to support eye cancer charity

Fishlock praises charity OcuMel UK and organises ball to raise money for the charity

Earlier this year, Diane Fishlock from Farnborough was diagnosed with ocular melanoma – a rare and incurable form of eye cancer that afflicts roughly 600 people in the UK every year.

Fishlock has praised the charity OcuMel UK for supporting her and her family and has, with the help of her daughter Charli Edwards, organised a ball to raise money for the charity.

It is the only charity in the UK that supports patients diagnosed with ocular melanoma. It helps by providing accurate information and emotional support via its website, helpline and online forums.
