Anita's story

Anita Grant joined Cambridge Children's Network in memory of her daughter Jess, who died of a rare cancer when she was 15. Jess felt passionately that a dedicated children's hospital for the east of England was desperately needed. She even wanted to work there once it opened. Anita is making sure Jess's voice - her ideas - are heard.
