HERO OF HE­ROES HAN­NAH LYSON

Southport Visiter - - Your Heroes -

Jour­ney – to share her ex­pe­ri­ences with oth­ers, to in­spire other young peo­ple suf­fer­ing from can­cer, and to let them know they were not alone

Writ­ing in the blog, she told her fol­low­ers: “I have em­barked on a com­pletely dif­fer­ent kind of ad­ven­ture al­to­gether, but an ad­ven­ture nev­er­the­less.

“I want to in­spire peo­ple. I want some­one to look at me and say – be­cause of you, I didn’t give up.”

Un­der­stand­ably, nei­ther Han­nah nor her fam­ily were able to be with us at the event last week, but her award was met with a stand­ing ova­tion.

This year’s Hero of He­roes award could not have gone to a braver, more in­spi­ra­tional, per­son and our thoughts go out to Han­nah’s fam­ily and friends at this time.
