Mia Samuels’ family throw regular fundraisers for Bloodwise cancer charity in her memory.

“We had a good turn-out from the community,” said Nicola, Mia’s mum.

“Families enjoyed all the activities including perfomances by GStars, and lots of people commented on what a nice way it was to remember Mia.

“I gave a speech sharing Mia’s journey and why we want to keep her legacy alive – it moved many people who were very emotional.”
