Singing star James Morrison to launch link-up of Lewis Mighty fund and hospital
25 February 2013
SUPERSTAR singer James Morrison will be performing to children suffering from cancer at Nottingham’s Queen’s Medical Centre today in an event to mark the start of a new partnership for the Lewis Mighty Fund.
Lewis, of Mackworth, died at the age of seven after bravely fighting the cancer neuroblastoma and friends, family and supporters raised nearly £250,000 intending to send Lewis for potentially life-saving surgery.
But Lewis became too ill to make the trip to the USA where the surgery was to take place. Now money saved in the Lewis Mighty Fund will be used to benefit children with cancer being treated at Nottingham Children’s Hospital, which Lewis attended.
Lewis’s mum Jaime Mighty, said: “It’s fantastic to have James’ support and we’re looking forward to him helping us mark the joining of Lewis’s fund with Nottingham Hospitals Charity.
