A brave teenager fighting back after being diagnosed with cancer has organised a concert to raise funds for charity.

Amy Quinn was given the devastating news that she had ovarian cancer in November last year.

It was only when the 19-year-old underwent an operation that cancer was found.

Further surgery sadly meant Amy had to have her ovaries removed, as well as her appendix and pelvic muscles.

She is now undergoing chemotherapy treatment.

Despite going through such a difficult time, courageous Amy is remaining optimistic and has organised a fundraising concert for the Teenage Cancer Trust (TCT), which has supported her through her battle.

Sing if You Wanna Beat Cancer is being held at Bishopbriggs Academy on Wednesday, June 5.

Performances will include jazz, musical theatre, rock, and a dance group.

Tickets are £5 and can be purchased by emailing singifyouwannabeatcancer@gmail.com You can visit Amy’s fundraising page at www.justgiving.com/Amyq
