It is not every day you come across a teenager who wants to inform other teenagers about breast cancer. This remarkable young girl has a
working enthusiasm required to carry out such a demanding project, is mature beyond her years and her energy to get things done is admirable and infectious. This brave young girl wants to make a difference and with Eek! My mummy has breast cancer, a one of a kind book, she will certainly achieve this.
Hi, my name is Emma. I am now thirteen, but when I was twelve, my mum told my little sister and I that she had breast cancer. Do you know how many websites come up when you Google ‘breast cancer’? It’s quite scary. So are all the big words. There were no publications for teenagers to help them understand what’s happening to their mummy. I struggled to come to terms with what was happening around me and had nowhere to turn. After an hour long visit to Maggie’s Centre, Edinburgh, I decided to write my own book. Knowledge is power
and with power comes happiness. I hope to help other teenagers so they don’t suffer like me.

Time: 3.30pm to 4.30 PM
