Rachael Bland has died

She was such a really, really lovely person.

Great colleague.

Amazingly courageous to the end.

She will be sadly missed by so many people.

Re: Rachael Bland has died

It's so sad. Only two days after she tweeted that Doctors had only given her days to live.

A wonderful inspirational person and it makes me feel very humble to think of someone losing their life at such a young age.

I've been in touch with a local presenter who worked with her too.

 

So sad...

Re: Rachael Bland has died

BBC North West Tonight did an excellent in depth item on Rachael's life & passing tonight.

She used to co-present NWT 2012/2013

 

 

We did meet briefly at the Christie,  where we were both being treated for Cancer.

We both supported each other.

It is so sad she is no longer with us.

 

She was a lovely person, she brightened up everyones day.

Many at BBC Manchester will miss her.

 

I will.....

I must admit I'd never heard of her until today.  So sad to see her with her little boy who will grow up with no - or very little - memory of his mummy.
