An appeal has been made for a company to provide a new boiler for the family of a 20-year-old who is fighting two forms of cancer.

Zac Forskitt, of Abington Vale, was diagnosed in September with a cancerous tumour on his chest and a rare form of leukaemia.

Since then he has been given intensive chemotherapy treatment at Nottingham City Hospital.

During a rare break in his treatment, his family including mum and dad Jason and Helen and sister Bethan, welcomed him home on Monday.

However, the family’s boiler broke down the next day and then there was a small fire that caused some damage to the house on Wednesday.

As a result, the family have now moved out as they have no hot water or heating.

Family friend Mark Russell made a successful appeal for any builders to help repair the house.

But he is now appealing for anyone who knows a company who may be able to install a new boiler for the family.

He said: “The family have not had a lot of luck. We are looking to do everything we can to help them.”
