Our Year 4 Superstar has painted the portrait of the consultant who looked after her when she was diagnosed with cancer at only 11 months old. She has revealed a painting of her consultant, Dr Dan, which she submitted as part of an exclusive art exhibition to mark World Cancer Day. The painting was displayed at the CLIC Sargent Art and Music Exhibition, held at Manchester’s Whitworth Art Gallery on Thursday 24 January, ahead of World Cancer Day on Monday 4 February. Her elder sister (Y6) also submitted her own story about Dr Dan – her “hero” – for the exhibition, titled ‘The doctor that saved a girl’s life’. Dr Dan Yeomanson is a Consultant Oncologist at the Sheffield Children’s Hospital and the story tells of how he saved her sister’s life. She writes: ‘It was a miracle that the tumour didn’t spread to the heart and it’s amazing that Dr Dan was able to save her… If it hadn’t been for Dr Dan, then the little baby would have not survived cancer. That tiny little baby has grown up to be an amazing and wonderful girl. Thanks to Dr Dan she can sing, dance and she can make everyone in the same room as her smile and laugh.’ The girls have also fundraised at West Meadows, each year, raising money for Ward 6 at Sheffield Children’s Hospital, recently raising over £200. The CLIC Sargent Art and Music Exhibition saw young artists, who have all been affected by cancer, display their work to key members of the local community, as well as family and friends. It was held by the charity to mark World Cancer Day and celebrate the creative achievements of young people who have been affected by cancer.
