A SIX-YEAR-OLD girl diagnosed with a tumour teamed up with her mother and grandmother to encourage people in Lancashire to raise money for game-changing research into cancer.

Bethany, now aged six, from Bacup, was just 17 months old, when she was diagnosed with Wilms’ tumour, which has vbeen the most common form of kidney cancer in children in 2012.

Folllowing the shock diagnosis, Bethany immediately began a course of chemotherapy.

Bethany then had an operation to remove the tumour and her left kidney, followed by another four rounds of chemotherapy.

Bethany still has annual check-ups, but is fit and well.

Bethany Trickett, her mum Sheona Parry and grandmother Val Parry have now teamed up with Stand Up To Cancer, a joint fundraising campaign from Cancer Research UK and Channel 4 which aims to get new pioneering tests and treatments to cancer patients, faster.

Mum Sheona Parry, aged 30, said: “We’re delighted to show our support for Stand Up To Cancer by dressing up in orange.

"It’s a fun and easy way to get involved and help raise money to save more lives.”
