We are all so very proud of Sarah Waller for winning Suffolk's 'Rising Star of the Year' award. A well-deserved winner!
Sarah was born prematurely at 29 weeks, then at the age of two she was diagnosed with Hepatoblastoma, an uncommon cancer of the liver. After undergoing surgery and intensive chemotherapy, she finished treatment, but starting reception class she was behind her peers in many areas of development. Starting school as a shy and reserved child, Sarah showed true grit and determination to overcome the obstacles in her early years to emerge into a confident, capable and charismatic young learner.
