Teacher postpones wedding to pay for pet lizard's cancer treatment

A bride-to-be has postponed her wedding so that she can afford to pay for the treatment of her sick pet lizard.

Teacher Lizzie Griffiths, 25, is so smitten with her adopted bearded dragon George that she has spent her complete £3,000 wedding fund on pioneering cancer treatment for him, without which he would have had to have been put down.

Lizzie lost her heart to George when she spotted him at a rescue centre last year. But after a few months she was devastated to find he had a tumour growing on his face.

She paid for it to be removed twice, but it kept growing back. Now she has spent her £3,000 savings on a new treatment – chemotherapy for lizards. George is thought to be the first bearded dragon in the UK to have radiotherapy.
