Last edited 17th November 2015

"They were people just like us, doing the most innocent and human of things: eating with family at a restaurant, working in a pizzeria, cheering at a football friendly, having a drink with friends in a bar, singing and dancing at a rock concert.

Student with Cancer Delivers Inspiring Speech from Wheelchair
Last edited 10th November 2015

What would you do if doctors told you you could be dead in a week? For Jake Bailey, the head boy at Christchurch Boys’ High School in New Zealand, this terrible prospect became a tragic reality. Only a week before his school’s senior prize-giving ceremony, Jake was diagnosed with Burkitts non-Hodgkinson lymphoma, which is recognised as the fastest growing human tumour and ideally requires intensive chemotherapy. His doctors told him he may not have long to live, and likely wouldn’t be able to attend the end-of-schooling ceremony. He made it to give his speech... watch this video to listen to his inspirational words. Well done Jake!
