I am delighted to have won the Outstanding Young Person of the Month Award, sponsored by the Hastings Observer Series and Sussex Coast College.
Each month, the award is presented to someone aged 18 and under who has excelled in some way, or has performed an important role on a voluntary basis in their own home or the wider community.
As part of my prize, I have received £100. I am donating half of my prize money to Fixers and the other half to Charity for Kids.
On Wednesday 9th July I travelled to London to take my campaign to the House of Lords. There I met with Lord Hunt and asked him for help to raise awareness, funding and support for people with neurofibromatosis. He agreed to call for a debate and ask several questions in the House of Lords.

I met with Lord Bassam of Brighton who was impressed with my campaign. He wants to raise the issue that health professionals need to better understand neurofibromatosis.
I also have the backing of my local MP Sarah Owen who is supporting me with my parachute jump this year and spreading my Fixers campaign on Twitter.
