  • Child cancer patients cheered by X Factor Stacey

    Stacey Solomon attended the Little Star Awards held at London Zoo, to honour the amazing courage and bravery of children and their families who are dealing with cancer. The awards were organised by Cancer Research UK, with approximately 20 children who are battling cancer, or have had cancer, from all over the country. All the children were presented with medals to honour their bravery while dealing with cancer.

    Stacey, accompanied by her young son Zachary, made a huge effort to meet all the children throughout the course of the day She said:

    It’s been an absolute pleasure to be part of such a wonderful day. I’ve met so many fantastic families and the children are exceptional, just gorgeous.

    Stacey was impressed by the way that the children dealt with their illness, showing strength in the face of cancer. One five year old who met the star is Sasha Pfumohjena, who has been able to kick a football for the very first time following his diagnosis with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia when he was aged just three years old. His mum Natalie said:

    Sometimes Sasha’s legs hurt so much after he’s been playing football that he can’t sleep. But he loves playing and just gets on with it. He has never let cancer get him down.

    The children benefit from being around other children who are going through the same experience, fighting cancer together.
