The family of a 27-year-old who died of breast cancer have pledged thousands in support of a new cancer support unit.
Rachel Lane, from Wymondham, was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2007.

Following her diagnosis she raised thousands of pounds for charity and was appointed an Olympic torch bearer.
After her death the Rachel Lane fund was founded in her memory, supporting charitable causes including, most recently, the Big C's Nearer to Home Appeal, with a £5,000 donation.
The Nearer to Home Appeal is working to raise £500,000 for a new state cancer support centre in Norwich.
Amanda Lansom from The Rachel Lane Fund said, "I've seen first-hand the difference a Big C Centre makes from when my sister Rachel was going through breast cancer. I know Rachel felt so lucky to have a centre on her door step to provide the support she needed during her battle against cancer, which is exactly why my family and I feel so strongly about making the donation to Big C's Appeal."
