Teenager set to take the plunge for charity

Phoebe Headley, 17, will take part in a 100ft abseil challenge to raise money for the Teenage Cancer Trust. The big-hearted Cleadon girl was treated on the trust’s unit at the Great North Children’s Hospital in Newcastle. After years of feeling unwell, she was diagnosed with an extremely rare genetic condition called familial adenomatous polyposis at the age of 13, and had to have a major operation to remove and reconstruct her large intestine. A check-up two years later revealed a golf ball-sized lump in the scar tissue from the operation – a very rare kind of cancerous tumour called desmoid fibromatosis.
