Corrie star Jennie McAlpine visits Children's Hospital
Actress Jennie McAlpine came to visit Royal Manchester
Children's Hospital recently, to meet some of our young patients on
Ward 84. Ward 84 is our specialist childhood cancer ward, and
Jennie came along as a guest of Royal Manchester Children's Charity
to find out more about the types of cancers we treat here.
This reason for this visit, is that her Coronation Street
character Fiz Brown is about to receive shocking news about
her five-year-old daughter Hope. She has already been through the
trauma of discovering her first baby was born with a hole in her
heart, but now Hope faces another crisis as she is diagnosed with a
highly aggressive cancer.
Jennie was on This Morning today with Holly and Phil to discuss
her experience at our Hospital, and chat about the impact the
storyline has had on her.
