Please meet Amy! She is 12 years old and the daughter of Simon one of our team here at Maidstone. Earlier this year, Amy had severe pain in her knee which was diagnosed as an Osteosarcoma, a cancerous tumour in her femur. On top of the chemotherapy to battle the cancer she also requires an operation to remove part of the bone in her leg, which will be replaced with a bionic part.
Hospitals are scary places at the best of times and whilst Amy has been visiting the hospital this fantastic charity 'Spread a Smile' have been there to take her mind off of things as much as possible.
Simon has seen first hand the incredible work that this charity does in brining a smile to a sick child's face through the toughest of times.
So for our one week in June this year, Simon, Jon Barnes, Scott Howie, Mario Fenech and Simon Cawse are taking on the huge challenge of completing a 200 mile bike ride across Kent.
Thank you for taking the time to read Amy & Simon's story, please give all that you can to help Spread a Smile continue their amazing work with poorly children
