Presenter James Everton said: “It’s hard to imagine what Hannah’s had to go through over the last few years – she’s been so brave about it – and when we heard she wanted some help completing her Bucket List, we just had to see what we could do. We’ve had an amazing response from our listeners and the guys at”

Hannah added – “Not many people know that young people can get cancer, and so I want to raise awareness of cancer in young people. It’s amazing what The Hits Radio has sorted for me, it’s so kind.”

Steve Heapy, Chief Executive of and Jet2holidays, said: “We are only too happy to help Hannah fulfil two of her ‘bucket list’ wishes, by providing city breaks to Rome and Amsterdam. She is a very brave young woman and we hope both her and her family have two very memorable and enjoyable trips.”
