Lucy Kerr Miss Scotland 2016 supporting Action Medical Research

Hoping to raise over £50,000 to help children suffering from Neuroblastoma.

Neuroblastoma – Around 100 children are diagnosed with a type of cancer called neuroblastoma each year in the UK. Neuroblastoma is the second most common solid tumour of childhood, after brain tumours. Most children affected are under five years old and, while treatment often proves life-saving, it can be gruelling, has debilitating side-effects and does not always work.  Tragically, around a third of children diagnosed with neuroblastoma lose their lives within five years. 

Action Medical Research’s Glasgow based project which is developing new combination treatments aiming to reduce suffering and save more young lives from this devastating cancer.

‘Please help make my year as Miss Scotland successful by helping me raise £50,000 to change the lives of those children suffering with this terrible condition.’    Lucy
