Young Person of the Year: Sarah Jane Hughes
Sarah Jane Hughes
Sarah was diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer at the age of 20 in June 2012.
In July the tumour was removed and by August she had started chemotherapy.
She celebrated her 21st birthday whilst undergoing the treatment.
Sarah says, “I’m still dealing with the effects of cancer and my treatment, but thanks to research I’m alive today! I now feel happy and healthy and I’m back at work. Cancer has changed my outlook on life”.
Sarah is now looking to start a course in social work as she is determined to give back and help as many people as possible.
She has fought and overcome all the obstacles in front of her, always with a smile on her face and Sarah is now looking forward to her dream wedding.
