Teenager Joanna tolead Kiltwalk
A teenager who months ago had major cancer surgery is to lead this year’s Royal Bank of Scotland Kiltwalk in Edinburgh.
Joanna Lamb, 17, was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, a rare bone cancer which affects around 20 people each year in Scotland, during her sixth year at Craigmount High School.
She suffered a leg amputation because of her illness in February but is determined to undertake the challenge on September 16.
Jo a n n a met First Minister Nicola Sturgeon and other party leaders at the Scottish Parliament where the Kitwalk will leave on September 16.
She said: “When it comes to the Royal Bank of Scotland Kiltwalk it is simple – if I can do it, then you can do it. Get involved.”
Joanna has already raised more than £16,000 for cancer charities.
