Amy-Lee is an inspiration to us all; OUR VOICE.
EVERYONE has problems, but they can fade into insignificance when you read about Aberdeen schoolgirl Amy-Lee MacDonald and the challenges she's had to face during her short life so far.
The 12-year-old will be at this weekend's Race For Life event and will ring the bell at the start line - a significant achievement given how much she's been through in the last 15 months.
Doctors gave her just days to live after she was diagnosed with T-cell Lymphoma, a rare form of Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma, but against all the odds she had been given the all-clear.
Aside from giving hope to other people currently battling cancers, stories like Amy-Lee's also illustrate how important cancer research funding is.
Scientific advances that undoubtedly saved her life would not be possible without the efforts of fundraisers - like all those people who will be taking part in either the 5k or 10k Race For Life on Sunday. Amy-Lee is living proof of the good you do. We don't take your efforts for granted.
