GB's Endurance Award given to brave cancer fighter

16 Aug 2019

8 year old Isabella Gillies from 1st Andover recently recieved a GB Endurance Award, which was presented at their awards evening by Hampshire West District President, Mrs Dianne Richardson.

The Endurance Award is a special award that is given to recognise bravery and determination in young people dealing with prolonged or serious illness.

Isabella was diagnosed with a plexiform hystiocystic tumour in her hand in April last year and had to undergo three operations. As well as operations, Isabella's treatment included numerous CT and MRI scans and still, Isabella continued to attend her GB group each week and never let her situation get her down. Isabella was given the all clear two days before Christmas.

Following her all clear, Isabella, along with her sister Summer, aged 7, decided to donate over 10 inches of hair to the Little Princess Trust who make wigs for children going through chemotherapy and hair loss. Both girls have also been known to take hand-drawn pictures into the town centre to give out and make people smile - just because!

Girls's Brigade England and Wales were so pleased to grant the award to Isabella and know that she will go on to inspire the lives of others.
