Cancer teen leads bat­tle for Mia, five

Sunday Mirror - - FRONT PAGE -

A SCHOOL­GIRL cancer sur­vivor has helped raise £280,000 to pay for a fel­low child pa­tient to go to the US for treat­ment.

Libby Jones, 13, asked her school friends to wear colour­ful clothes and do­nate £1 so Mia Cham­bers, five, could have neu­rob­las­toma ther­apy.

The idea spread and other schools, of­fices and shops took part in Merthyr Tyd­fil, South Wales, where Libby and Mia both live.

Libby had eye cancer treat­ment in the US paid for by the NHS, but fund­ing was not given to Mia.

Mia’s dad Josh, 28, who is with his daugh­ter in Michi­gan, said: “Libby made it all hap­pen.”
