Girl Gets Seven GCSEs Despite Being Told She Had Cancer Before Exam

Girl Gets Seven GCSEs Despite Being Told She Had Cancer Before Exam

A schoolgirl who was taken out from one of her GCSE exams to be told that she had cancer now has a bright future ahead after managing to get positive results in her exams.

Hannah Fraser, from Formby, was told that she was suffering from Hodgkin Lymphoma while she was waiting to sit her PE exam on 18 May this year.

Aged just 16 at the time, she had been feeling tired and was prescribed pills to treat anaemia ahead of her diagnosis.

However, when those symptoms persisted she was given a CT scan, which eventually revealed that she had cancer.

Days later, she was waiting to go into the examination area when her dad arrived and rushed her away to the hospital for immediate treatment.

It turned out that the teenager had a tumour surrounding her windpipe and needed treatment that included chemotherapy and steroids, and forced her to have her lymph nodes removed.

Despite facing a fight for her life, Hannah managed to put on an inspirational display in her exams regardless. Now 17 years old, she's beaten cancer and managed to pick up seven GCSEs including the vital Maths, English and Science.

Now that she is in remission following her illness, she will have to keep going back to Alder Hey Children's Hospital for the next five years to make sure that she's still OK.

Hannah openly admits that she didn't expect to pass any of her exams, so to get seven - including the most important ones - is an incredible feat.

She is now about to start her A-Levels and hopes to eventually land a career in the police, or in the entertainment industry doing hair and make-up for TV programmes.
