HANNAH Jones took time out of lessons to travel to London to campaign for more to be done for research into brain tumours.
The 17-year-old Christleton High School student, who has received treatment for a tumour herself, met Chester MP Stephen Mosley at the Houses of Parliament to demand more effort and finances from Government and other cancer charities. Brain tumour research receives a very small slice of the cancer funds, despite being one of the biggest cancer killers of children.
Hannah joined 150 patients, carers, brain tumour professionals and scientists from Samantha Dickson Brain Tumour Trust, Brain Tumour Research, Brain Tumour UK and the International Brain Tumour Alliance at the House of Commons in order to rally support from MPs for the Brain Tumour Outcomes Manifesto.
Dad Steve added: “It was an enormous success with 12 MPs signing the Brain Tumour Care Charter.”
Hannah is approaching her target of £100,000 of funds raised for brain tumour research.
