Song fundraiser for former classmate.

FORMER classmates of a schoolgirl suffering from an inoperable brain tumour are backing her with a new song.

Eve Anderson, nine, collapsed at home on Valentine's Day, 2011 with bleeding on the brain.

Medics later discovered a brain tumour growing on her brain stem, something which has left the youngster unable to walk or talk.

Now, a professional jazz musician has teamed up with youngsters from Stannington First School - in Morpeth, Northumberland - to record the single, Song For Eve. The tune will soon be available to download and money raised will go to the Newcastle Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust charity to help Eve and other children like her.

Stepfather Peter Miller, a 32-year-old civil servant, said: "It is fantastic, regardless of all the money raised for Eve and children like her, it is such a lovely idea. It will be a wonderful thing for Eve to have and keep for the rest of her life and for her family."

Eve, of Haydon Road, Ashington, Northumberland, is surrounded by her family, including mother Lee, 34, younger sister Mia, six, and brother, Jed, two, and her father Ian Anderson.

She is now attending The Northumberland Church of England Academy as that school is better equipped to deal with her needs. Song For Eve is an emotional song penned by professional musician Tony Grey, 37.

His father, Ken Grey, chairman of the trustees of the Newcastle Healthcare Charity, said Song For Eve would soon be available on the trust's website.

Mr Miller added: "There are so many people involved and they have all done a fantastic job."
