    Story

    This description of Charlotte's story is taken from the website of the newly formed charity: Charlotte's BAG is a registered UK Charity: 1169419.

    Charlotte had lots in common with many teenage girls. She loved fashion, make-up, music and cats, and planned to go to college to study beauty therapy. She believed passionately in justice and fairness, and that kindness was an essential part of life. She was beautiful in every sense of the word, and loving and beloved.

    Her world, and that of her family, fell apart in August 2013, when after suffering headaches for four months she was diagnosed with anaplastic astrocytoma, an incredibly rare cancer which affects one in a million people (or one person in 25 full football stadiums). Over the next three years the astrocytoma developed into glioblastoma multiforme.

    Never one to be beaten, despite this shattering diagnosis, Charlotte began to vlog via youtube, talking to other young people about her experiences of life with cancer – and living life to the full, despite her condition. Her voice reached out to over a million people worldwide, and her achievements were recognised with awards from charities Cancer Research UK and Clic-Sargent.

    Charlotte continued to vlog almost to the very end of her life in a series of heartwarming, funny, emotional, poignant and sad conversations with her followers.

    Charlotte passed away in Feburary 2016, a week after her 19th birthday and her mother Alex and brother Miles continue to keep her channel alive as a resource for young cancer patients and their families.

    I am going to run the Brighton Half Marathon again in 2017 to raise money for Charlotte's BAG (Battle Against Glioblastoma). Please donate towards this if you can. Any donation, no matter how big or small will help make a difference. Please also take a moment to have a look at the charity's website and Charlotte's youtube channel.
