Pop stars Little Mix have been told they could make poorly fan Aimee Marshall’s dream come true if they can pay a surprise visit to a special prom held in her honour.
And if the all-girl group can’t attend the “night to remember” celebration they have been urged to record a video with a personalised message to the Felpham girl.
Aimee, aged eight, was diagnosed with anaplastic ependymoma, an aggressive form of cancer that led to tumours growing on her spine. Now doctors have found a tumour on her brain, even though she has endured surgery, and chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatment to try to combat the condition
Aimee’s mum Traci and her family and friends are rallying to make the rest of Bishop Tufnell pupil Aimee’s life as care-free and fun as possible. Donations have flooded in to a JustGiving account and to date £10,230 has been raised.
The prom, which takes place at then school this Saturday, has been organised by Sophie Jackson and Asheena Whiting, both of whom are parents who have children who have grown up with Aimee.
They say they have been overwhelmed by various donations from businesses whichhave responded in generous fashion to an appeal to help out with the prom.
Sophie said: “To somehow get Little Mix involved would be amazing and really give Aimee a lift. If it happens it will be very last minute but even if we could somehow get them to record a message for her it would help massively. Aimee is such a big fan and sadly missed a show they did in Southampton earlier this year as she was having radiotherapy.”
