Hello, my name is Tara, I’m 10 years old
Just before Christmas 2005, I was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL). Over the next two years, I spent time in and out of hospital receiving treatment for cancer.
Finally, in March 2013 I was given the all clear and told leukaemia had gone away.
I still visit Great Ormond Street Hospital for check-ups where I always pop into the playroom – still my favourite place – to say hello. Today I am a very busy girl. I love being a brownie, riding my bike, swimming, acting and dancing. But I especially love playing with my friends.
