This is sixteen year old Amy Bowyer’s story, as we hear how a series of biopsies of a tumour behind her nose led to the diagnosis of Burkitt’s Lymphoma in July. Treated in Southampton Hospital, Amy explains how grateful she was to be looked after by such pleasant and positive staff and how this made a difference in helping her to get through it all. As well as telling her own story, Amy offers some sound advice to other teenagers, her main tip being not to worry too much or think too far ahead and despite the side effects of treatments, remain positive. Amy explains how hard it was to lose her hair, but after discovering the wonders of a top class celebrity hairdresser, recommends visiting Trevor Sorbie for a wig makeover! Moving on now and planning her ‘Make A Wish’ treat, Amy takes time to thank some of the people who made her journey a lot easier, including the CLIC Sargent team in Southampton and her friends and family, who were always at hand to put a smile on her face.
