Meet Toni Chorley, a young model who was dubbed the next Twiggy. Sadly, she lost her battle with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma two days after Christmas. Read more here.

Toni Chorley had just begun the career of her dreams, modeling. She was spotted during a talent scout, catching the scout’s eye with her 60s look and short hair. She moved to London two years ago to begin working. Soon thereafter doctors found a growth in her neck and a tumor in her chest wall, diagnosing her with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. She managed to fight the disease and went into remission, however the cancer returned and she was forced to quit modeling by June of 2007.

She did continue to campaign for the Anthony Nolan Trust and in an interview last year she said:

“Getting cancer at 21 was a massive shock, but in a way, I see it as a blessing. It’s helped me to see things in a positive light and now I can help other people.”

Sadly , shortly after Toni Chorley received a long-awaited and successful bone-marrow transplant, she caught pneumonia. Two days after Christmas the 23-year-old beauty died, surrounded by her family at Newcastle’s Royal Victoria Infirmary.

Her funeral will be held at St John’s Church in Castleside, tomorrow at 12:15pm.
