Sarah Harding Helps Save Watford Girl

23 August 2011, 06:00

Girls Aloud singer Sarah Harding has stepped in to help raise funds for cancer victim Luna Petagine from Watford.

She is going to be the main guest at the Light up the Sky for Luna event at the Hilton Hotel in Watford.

Little Luna suffers from a form of cancer which attacks the central nervous system, called an Ependymoma brain tumour.

After extensive treatment here in the UK, her family was told doctors could do nothing more for the four year old.

Her only hope is pioneering treatment only available in America which costs £50,000 a year.

The family have managed to raise £100,000 for Luna's initial consultation and first round of treatment at the Burzynski Clinic in Houston Texas which she's due to start in a few weeks.

But the family still need to raise funds so that Luna can continue the treatment for as long as she needs it.

Sarah agreed to help out after hearing and being touched about the plight of little Luna.

She was also impressed with the battle and campaign to raise funds so far.

Sarah who earlier this year got engaged to DJ Tom Crane was told about Luna by her future sister-in-law Anna Iversen, who is married to Crystal Palace footballer Steffen Iversen. The couple who live in Kings Langley have been strong supporters of Luna's campaign.

The Hilton Event will take place on Nov 4. Tickets are £25 each and tables of 10 are also available.

There are amazing auction prizes including iPad, Girls Aloud signed memorabilia, dinner for two at Gilgamesh London, David Haye boxing gloves, signed Beyonce photo and many more prizes.  There will also be a raffle which will be drawn by Sarah.
