‘The X Factor’ star on how she has been treated by family members, colleagues and fans after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer
News of the pancreatic disease has caused some to question the extent to which family and friends can help someone who is struggling with it.
“You could tell there was a lot of support and understanding of what was going on, but people have got to work together,” TV presenter and actor Liza Campbell told Newsnight.
The news came as Campbell, whose family were among those who were among the first to notice she was struggling, was given a new round of chemo and radiation treatments.”
The best thing that anyone can do is to come and get them to talk about what they’re going through, and then you can help them out, you know, not to try to pull them into a personal relationship.”
The news came as Campbell, whose family were among those who were among the first to notice she was struggling, was given a new round of chemo and radiation treatments.
She has now started a new phase of treatment at her home in Manchester, which will include using an experimental diet and a new implant, the first of its kind in the UK.
She said: “It’s going to be a bit of a learning curve.”
But I’ve found out a lot about myself.
“There’s a lot to learn about who I am.
I feel much more at ease. “
I’ve got a new family, new friends.
She said she was looking forward to going back to work, but added: ‘I can’t say I’m going to give up the work that I’ve been doing. “
It has been an incredible experience for me.”

Liza Campbell, pictured here with her sister and her husband, said she felt ‘very fortunate’ to have her condition under control after being given chemo treatments and radiation treatment, as well as taking part in a charity event.
She was given the diagnosis last month but has since started her own journey of self-sufficiency with a new programme and food.
A source close to Campbell said: ‘She has been very fortunate, because she has so much support from her family, friends and the public.
“She’s really, really lucky to have been able to get the treatment that she needs, and it’s all been going to plan since she was diagnosed.”
We know she’s going through some difficult times, but she’s got the support and support that she deserves.
“She added that the family were still working on getting their finances in order, with her now relying on the help of her brother-in-law and former partner in the restaurant industry.
A spokesperson for the National Pancreatic Cancer Foundation (NPCCF) said: ‘[Liza] Campbell has shown tremendous courage and determination in coming forward with her diagnosis, which has given her the opportunity to go through with the necessary treatments and therapy to help control her illness.’
Liza has been incredibly resilient throughout this process and has been a tremendous role model for all who are struggling with pancreatitis.’
The NPCCF and the NHS have been incredibly supportive of Liza’s family and their efforts to help her through this difficult time, and will continue to provide support in the future.’
The family will also be donating their first Christmas present, a customised car to Campbell’s father, who works in an electrical construction industry.
She described it as a ‘special gift’ and said:’It’s a really special car, it’s a custom designed car for me and my father, which he will be driving.”
The car is a very special car.
“He’s going crazy over it, it is an incredible thing, it was a dream come true for him.”
I hope that he enjoys the car as much as I do, and the car will be used for a special occasion when we go out to dinner.’
The couple’s charity event is a fundraiser for the Pancreatics Research Foundation, which helps research pancreatic cancers.
