I am now 10 years old and determined to help other children that have cancer, but also want to provide funding into paediatric cancer,

My name is Jamie Tipler and I live with my Mum, Dad and little sister, Sophie. My hobbies include swimming, playing the drums, cooking and I also enjoy going to school and being with my friends.

Unfortunately, whilst going into school on Wednesday 22nd May 2013, I felt faint and collapsed, so I was then taken to hospital where they suggested I had a brain tumour and so I was then moved to the John Radcliffe Children’s Hospital in Oxford to have an operation.
