How Cancer Patient Bob Thanked Doctors With Art

A cancer patient who found a talent for art following diagnosis has presented a piece of work to inspire medics at the hospital where he was treated.

Bob Martin, 73, from St Helens, underwent radiotherapy at The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre after being diagnosed with bowel cancer in 2010.

Granddad Bob had never taken any interest in art before – he had been a keen climber but when his illness stopped him taking to the hills, he took up painting instead.

Bob visited the hospital to present a painting to staff which he hopes will spur on young doctors and nurses.
