Five years ago, ITV News brought you the story of a charity that was launched to find ways of detecting and fighting cancer which was the brainchild of Sir Bobby Robson.
The aim of the charity's campaign was to raise half a million pounds, but today his foundation has passed the five million pound mark.
Sir Bobby's wife, Lady Elsie, has never spoken publicly since Sir Bobby's death - until today.
Lady Elsie says that he would have been humbled by what has been achieved.
