“It means so much to be trusted with a storyline like this – one that’s close to many people’s hearts. Sadly many of our viewers will be able to relate to Lola’s story and it’s been heartbreaking to speak to the families affected by brain tumors and hear their stories,” she said.
“They’ve been so amazing in sharing their experiences with me, and I’m so lucky to have them. I wouldn’t be able to do this storyline without their support,” he added.
The soap consulted with Brain Tumour Research and Macmillan Cancer Support for this storyline.
Dany Bell said that the storyline will show how such a diagnosis can affect a person’s life and how challenging it’ll be for them moving forward. Macmillan is always ready to offer advice and support to any person who needs it especially since many people around the UK see the reality in Lola’s storyline on EastEnders.
They also urged anyone who’s watching the show and may have concerns about possible signs or symptoms of cancer to talk to their GP as soon as possible.
