Cheryl Cole praised her fans for launching a malaria campaign
Cheryl Cole said her fans were "amazing, considerate and caring people" after they began a campaign to raise money to help fight malaria. For Comic Relief, the 29-year-old singer has lent her voice to the moving story of an 18-month-old boy who died before he could be given treatment for the disease. Cole battled the illness herself in 2010 after holidaying in Tanzania.
She tweeted of her fans: "Wow!' What have I just come across.. I can not believe that some of you have been starting a campaign to help fight Malaria and in such a short period of time have raised a considerable amount. My heart is melting knowing that I have such amazing, considerate and caring people on here. You make me so proud."
The singer was taken to hospital after contracting malaria following a trip to Tanzania. Her story underlines the importance of
medical travel insurance when visiting countries such as Africa.
She said talking about her illness is still hard.
"I have found, and still find it incredibly hard to talk about publicly as my experience is still very fresh and raw in my mind," the Girls Aloud star tweeted. "But to feel a response like that from Paul's story is amazing. Thank you. You're all such angels."
