Now and again we hear some truly upsetting stories from Doctor Who fans who are facing real life challenges. One such fan is British-born Amy Watts, who has stage four cancer, and desperately needs help in order to get a life-saving operation.

Amy, who now lives in Los Angeles, has been undergoing gruelling chemotherapy every two weeks and was hoping to have an operation back in December. Unfortunately her Doctor has now ruled out the operation. Amy recently had a second opinion from a Doctor in the UK who wants to perform two operations at Spire Hospital in Leeds - the first in February and the second shortly afterwards.

Unfortunately the operation will cost over £70,000... Fortunately her friends and family have clubbed together and launched the 'Hold Amy's Hand' fund, where they hope to raise over £100,000 to cover her medical expenses and re-establishing herself in the UK.

The name of the fund has drawn inspiration from the Series 6, Doctor Who episode 'The Almost People', where The Doctor is quoted as saying:

""There's a lot of things you need to get across in this universe. Warp drive... wormhole refractors. You know the thing you need most of all? You need a hand to hold".
