Brave Jahzara faces cancer for the second time

A caring teenager has put others first despite facing cancer for the second time.

Jahzara Edmondson this week donated her beautiful hair to The Little Princess Trust shortly before she starts cancer treatment.

She had been living cancer-free since 2013 but last year was given the devastating news that she has a metastatic tumour on her lower spinal cord.

The brave teen from Manchester previously underwent two brain operations when, aged just six, a tumour the size of a tennis ball was discovered.

Jahzara’s mum Gill said: "I've been devastated since Jahzara's doctor told us. It's twice we've had to face this terrible news, no family should have to face this.

"It's not what anyone wants to hear. We are trying to keep our heads up and my daughter continues to stay strong and positive against all this turmoil."

Jahzara, who is now 15, will soon undergo a course of radiotherapy. She told her mum: “It’s okay – I will go through it again and beat it again.”

Jahzara will shortly receive a wig from The Little Princess Trust and all of us feel very privileged to be able to offer a wig to this inspirational teenager.

We are also incredibly grateful to Jahzara for her hair donation - and for thinking of us and other young people in a similar situation when she is facing so many challenges of her own.

The big cut took place at TrendCo, not far from the family's home in Manchester, when Ayesha - Jahzara's sister – joined her sibling in cutting and donating their long locks to LPT.
