Teenager Joanna to lead 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.
Joanna 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.
