Meet Olivia

"Livvy’s a fighter and meets every challenge with a cheeky smile."

Olivia was diagnosed with a brain tumour when she was just two years old and relies on pioneering research at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH). She is taking part in Bad Hair Day with her school this February to raise funds for GOSH.

Olivia’s mum Vicki said that Olivia can’t wait to wear glittery hair with her friends at school. “I’m sure Olivia’s school will get involved," she said. "The kids will love being silly with their hair. It’s a bit different from the usual non-uniform day fundraisers but still as easy to organise. I’m going to try to encourage all our local schools to join in and help support GOSH.

Olivia relies on pioneering research at GOSH to find new treatments for a brain tumour that cannot be surgically removed. 

"We are so thankful for all the research carried out into brain tumours  it's current research that is hopefully finding new treatments for her. This motivates us to fundraise for GOSH to find answers for other children like Olivia.”
