Two year old raises thousands for charity

She's only two, she has leukaemia, but she's helped raise more than £20k to help other children.

Yasmin Parsons was diagnosed with cancer just four months ago and faces two years of chemotherapy.

But her family has been dealing with that trauma by focusing on other families.

They've been speaking to our reporter Toby Sadler.

The family of a two-year-old leukaemia patient has raised more than £20,000 for Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH).

Yasmin Parsons, from Woodford Green in Essex, is being treated at the hospital after being diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic lymphoma in August.

Her parents, photographer Andrew Parsons and writer Karen Attwood, created a blog - www.ourlifewithleukaemia.blogspot.co.uk - which tells the story of Yasmin's treatment and aims to raise awareness of childhood cancer while raising money for GOSH.
