A HENLEY-in-Arden school girl has sadly died after battling a rare form of childhood bone cancer.

A HENLEY-in-Arden school girl has sadly died after battling a rare form of childhood bone cancer.

Brave Jazmine Lewis lost her determined fight to Ewings Sarcoma on Saturday (November 6) while a patient at Acorns Children Hospice in Worcester.

The nine-year-old lived with her mum Jade and little sister Jessenia, aged four, in Prince Harry’s Road.

Jazmine was diagnosed with Ewings Sarcoma, when she was just six, after months of suffering with pains in her right leg. After lengthy and painful treatments including chemotherapy and operations, Jazmine was declared in remission last November but tragically the cancer returned.

The Solihull News ran an article about the courageous youngster in July this year after her devastated family learned the cancer had returned and was terminal.

Young Jazmine had compiled a wish list or ‘bucket list’ of all the things she wanted to do in her lifetime and with help from generous friends, family and well wishers, many were achieved including a celebrity makeover and photo shoot and meeting pop star Peter Andre.

Jazmine’s funeral is set to be held at St. John’s Church, Henley-in-Arden at 1pm on Tuesday November 16.

Family flowers only with donations to Acorn’s Children’s Hospice, Worcestershire.
