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.
