One of our supporters, Josh, features in the Embarrassing Bodies, Stand Up to Cancer special on Channel 4.

Josh was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer, malignant melanoma, behind his eye. The operation to remove the tumour and stop it spreading meant he lost not only his eye, but a large portion of his eye-socket, cheek and jaw. Now, several reconstructive procedures later, surgeons have rebuilt his face using skin from his thigh, bone from his shoulder and dental implants.
