Cancer campaigner Deborah James is made a dame

Sky, 14 May 2022
Deborah James, cancer campaigner and podcast host, has been made a dame after raising more than £4m for Cancer Research after launching a Just Giving page this week.

The 40-year-old podcast host announced earlier this week that she would be moving to hospice-at-home care to treat her terminal bowel cancer, adding on social media that she does not know "how long I've got left."

The podcast host was diagnosed with the disease in 2016 and two years later launched her BBC Podcast You, Me and the Big C.
