Husband pays tribute to footballer wife

Each year more than 1000 women in the North West are diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Symptoms can be hard to spot and often by the time women visit their GP it can be too late.

Stefan Mincher lost his wife Emma at age 21. She was a keen footballer who made more than 30 appearances for Blackburn Rovers' ladies team. Her husband hopes telling her story will help others get an earlier diagnosis.
