Teen launches campaign after cancer diagnosis

A teenager from Cwmbran has launched a campaign to encourage more people to donate bone marrow and blood after she was diagnosed with cancer.

Last year, Emily Clark noticed her stomach was swelling up and feeling bloated and over a few weeks two lumpy areas began to develop.

The 16 year old went for a scan with her mother in December and - after several more scans - was told she had non-Hodgkin's (Burkitt's) lymphoma. Over the next four months she underwent chemotherapy and had nine lumbar punctures and a chest drain.

In April this year, she was given the all clear and now she's started her own campaign (Remission Possible) to help raise awareness and encourage more people to donate bone marrow and blood.
