Deborah James issued a heartfelt thanks to Instagram fans after receiving a bunch of letters.

Earlier this month, Deborah shared the heartbreaking news that her active care for bowel cancer has stopped.

She’s now receiving end-of-life care following her diagnosis with bowel cancer in 2016.

Since the devastating news, Deborah has incredibly raised more than £6million for Cancer Research UK through her Bowelbabe Fund.
