A 12-year-old girl says she's taking on a fundraising walk for the Starfish Ward despite her cancer treatment restricting the mobility of her legs.

Molly Hall, from Watford was diagnosed with Leukaemia back in August last year and was staying in Great Ormond Street Hospital in London.

She was later transferred to the children's ward in Watford General Hospital in November.

Her aunt, Alison Roper, said she suffers with pain in her legs which restricts her ability to walk. This is caused by her chemotherapy treatment that impacts the nerves in her body.

Despite this Molly is now raising money for the Starfish Ward by walking four miles up and down her driveway at home.

She is gradually completing her walk and admits she had to stop for a while after receiving small fractures in her leg.

Alison said her niece used to be very athletic before she was diagnosed,  taking part in Race for Life - which raises money for cancer research - and winning first place positions in sporting events at school.

Alison said: "This has set her back so much. When she walks she is in pain and she can't walk properly anymore.

"This is a big challenge for Molly, treatment makes her tired and she has had mobility challenges."

Molly originally set out to raise £500 for the ward but has now raised £1,885.

Alison added: "The staff at Watford General have been fantastic and they're so selfless.

"When she goes there they have a special room for her, I couldn't fault them one bit and they're a great support."
