Teen helps can­cer girl

The People - - NEWS FEATURES & -

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, got pals at school to wear colour­ful clothes and give £1 so Mia Cham­bers, five, could have neu­rob­las­toma ther­apy.

The idea spread around Merthyr Tyd­fil, South Wales, where Libby and Mia live, and thou­sands of peo­ple pitched in.

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