Emma Sutherland

Diana Active Campaigner

I wrote ‘Eek My Mummy Has Breast Cancer’ because my mum was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. I was 12 and my sister was 9. I tried to find a book about my mum’s cancer to help me understand what was going on but I could only find books for little kids or adult material which I couldn’t really understand. So I decided to write my own to make a difference and help other teenagers. Since receiving The Diana Award, I have continued volunteering for various cancer charities and am planning another Eek Skin Cancer book in the near future.

Do you know an inspiring young person you want to nominate for a Diana Award?
