Black woman turning white due to rare side effect

A cancer sufferer has told how she is "losing her identity as a black woman" due an ultra-rare side effect to her treatment - which is slowly turning her WHITE. Paula Edwards, 54, was diagnosed with terminal kidney cancer in 2012 and was initially given 12 to 18 months to live.

After undergoing surgery for a fourth time last year, Paula started taking Votrient tablets, which have side effects such as blisters on the tongue and hands.
