At the start of the week I found a video of Ruby Seeto at nzherald and I knew straight away that we needed to hear more from her.
At 9 years of age Ruby was diagnosed with a rare liver cancer. She required surgery to remove a 1.6kg tumour from her liver and then spent 12 months at Starship Hospital undergoing intensive chemotherapy.
"I don't remember much. I think my brain has blocked out a lot of the bad memories," says Ruby.
"But I always loved to draw. I used to draw in my little notebook all the time."
It was a pastime that helped her get through the year and now, ten years later, has grown into a significant fundraiser for the hospital.
Listen to our chat for all the details on Ruby's cool tea towels and how much they have raised so far for Starship.
So amazing Ruby, you are a little Star!
