My daughter Niamh was diagnosed with a cancerous brain tumour in 2009.The moment she was told she was determined to beat this disease and she nearly lost her sight.She never complained or moaned about any treatment or when she lost all her hair or spent hours being sick, she always had a smile on her face and managed to keep positive and she gave us, her famiy, the strengh to carry on, she kept us going. At the moment she is in remission and looks fantastic, she has returned to school and has done fundraising for a local charity, Caudwell Children, who took the family on their Destination Dreams Trip to Orlando.As soon as we returned she wanted to fundraise for the charity. She organised her school peers and teachers and the local Round Table and raised over £500 for the charity. She said she wanted to raise money to help another child experience what she had in Orlando. Her school were so impressed with her they have named her Charity Leader and often hold fundraisers for various charities in the local community.She also helped the charity raise money for a local girl Ruby Owen who needed treatment for her brain tumor in America,Niamh said she was lucky hers could be treated at home and she felt she had to do something to help the Ruby Campaign.Niamh also injects her self once a day with a growth hormone, she hates injections but she has taken it all in her stride and never moans.Caudwell nominated her for a Sentinel Hero award for her funfraising, her bravery and her smile.
