Kiya -16 just diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma

On Friday 23rd April 2021 I found out that I had Stage 4 Hodgkin’s lymphoma. I’m only 15, in year 11 my GCSE year so this couldn’t have happened at a more difficult  time. But I am now being looked after by the amazing team at Ward 27 of LRI and The Teenage Cancer Trust.  

This time last year I had cut my hair for The Little Princess Trust and now they will be giving me a lovely wig. In return, because they are an amazing charity I will be giving a sum of the donations to them.

With the rest of the money I am wanting to give it to other charities that look into rare cancers and that help teenagers and children get through this very difficult time. 

Hope against cancer 

Children’s cancer and leukaemia group 


Every single penny counts and will be very appreciated.

Thank you for all the support and donations - Kiya x
