TRIBUTES have poured in for a dedicated children's cancer nurse who was found dead – as pals say she "would do anything for anyone".

Stacey Fusco, 30, from Swadlincote, South Yorkshire, was a "dedicated and respected" oncology nurse who worked at Birmingham Children's Hospital for seven years before she tragically died on April 20.

Her devastated mum Sue Eley told how Stacey was her "best friend", and said she'd "never forget her".

Sue told Birmingham Live: "She was my best friend. I saw her every day and we used to do a lot of things together. We're a very close family all of us.

"When she went, she took a part of me and I will never be the same again. We were very close. She was someone very special.

"She's a big loss in my life and a big part of me that's been taken – it just seems so unfair. I will never forget her."

The heartbroken mum told how Stacey was "lovely and would do anything for anyone" – and always put her friends and family first.

Sue added: "She was also dedicated to her job as an oncology nurse and did get emotional sometimes over it.

"She worked hard to get where she was and people respected her for it. A lot of people Stacey worked with said how dedicated she was."

A full inquest into her death will be held on April 20.

The opening to the inquest heard her cause of death was drug toxicity.
