Today is little Summer Kansiray's eighth birthday. But while most children her age would be opening presents and having a party, Summer will be spending the day in hospital.

The youngster, from Ogmore Vale, had a rare form of cancer when she was fourteen months old which meant both kidneys had to be removed. Summer received a transplant in 2012, but for the last six months her body started to reject the kidneys, meaning they had to be removed and Summer is now reliant on full dialysis.

Summer told her parents that all she wanted for her birthday was a lot of cards to open from her hospital bed.

Her parents made an appeal to see how many they could get delivered to her for her big day. Happy Birthday Summer!
