A Nexus rail worker whose baby daughter battled a brain tumour has paid tribute to the nurse who cared for her, who has sadly died after contracting coronavirus.
Rebecca Mack from Northumberland cared for Fiona McGregor-Frazer’s baby daughter.
Fiona works at the Nexus TravelShop in Haymarket Metro Station and has been left devastated after learning of Ms Mack’s passing.
Fiona’s six-year-old daughter, Grace, was cared for by Ms Mack in the Children’s Cancer Unit at Newcastle’s Royal Victoria Infirmary in 2016.
Fiona’s daughter has battled two brain tumours from the age of just 11 months – it was during her second admission in November 2015 that Ms Mack cared for Grace.
“I was devastated to hear that Rebecca had died,”
“She was a brilliant nurse who did so much for Grace when she was in hospital for six months. I feel proud to have known her and I feel so terribly sorry for her family.”
“Rebecca was such a lovely bubbly person. She lit up a room. She was so nice and so genuine, you could talk to her about anything, which is vital when you have such an ordeal of having a very poorly child being in hospital for so long.
“I remember her amazing smile and how she would keep Grace entertained during her treatment by blowing up her rubber gloves.
“We got to know Rebecca quite well during that six-month stint in the hospital, and I can recall her talking about her long commute into work everyday on the bus. She was like a friend to me and my husband, Darren. I’m so grateful for everything she did for my daughter.”
“One of the other kid’s parents from the ward messaged me to say that Rebecca was the nurse who had died of coronavirus.
“I was shocked and upset. It’s a tragic to lose someone so young. Rebecca is the reason that my daughter is still alive today. She was lovely and I’ll never forget her.”
