PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! A couple have been dealt a devastating double blow after they were both diagnosed with brain tumours in the space of seven months. Mark Watts, 54, from Runcorn, was told he had a benign tumour called an Acoustic Neuroma in November 2019. Fast forward to June 2020 and doctors discovered Mark's wife Azanith, 39, also had a brain tumour which was later found to be cancerous. Azanith, who works for the NHS in Theatre Support, first started experiencing headaches at the start of the coronavirus pandemic in March. Mark told the ECHO: "She had headaches from about March and they just got worse - and then they just got unbearable. "I took her to A&E in Liverpool and they actually initially sent her home with just a migraine and I had to phone for an ambulance twice. "I noticed that her cognitive abilities weren't what they were. She didn't know where she was. "I took her back and I rang PALS and said 'there's something more going on here, give her a scan.' That was when they found three lesions in her head." Azanith Watts, 39, was told her cancer had returned in March this year Receive newsletters with the latest news, sport and what's on updates from the Liverpool ECHO by signing up here. Azanith was taken for emergency surgery at the Walton Centre to remove the tumours, where Mark was told she could die if they didn't operate immediately. The results of a biopsy later showed that she had a rare type of cancer called Central nervous system Lymphoma.

. But sadly the results of an MRI scan in March showed the cancer had returned for a second time. Due to being diagnosed with Lupus as a teenager - which has affected the functionality of her kidneys, Azanith is unable to undergo further surgery. This means she now needs treatment called Cytotoxic T Cell which is currently not funded on the NHS. A GoFundMe page has been set up by her sister Amy Howe to help raise the £13,500 needed for the treatment. Meanwhile, Mark's diagnosis means he must undergo another scan to see if his tumour has shrunk in size or if it is under control before doctors can decide whether they need to operate. Mark said: "It's a difficult situation because my wife has to retire from work because she can't work anymore and I've had to reduce my hours. "The emotional impact is really difficult to handle because we don't know really the outcome of what's going to happen to the future - it's the uncertainty really." Azanith is now trying to raise enough money to get the treatment she needs Despite this, Mark said they have both found hope in the fact that Azanith's cancer is treatable if they can raise enough money to get her the treatment she needs. Mark added: "We're really grateful for the help from strangers - there's people we know and people we don't know. "It really makes us feel that people care out there and we're really thankful for every donation, it doesn't matter how small." To visit the GoFundMe page click here.
