THE COUSIN of a young girl from Anglesey who has recently been diagnosed with cancer has been raising money for her treatment by selling handmade bracelets.

The family of Maisy Fitzmaurice, 10, were told she has cancerous ovarian germ cell tumours last month.

Since then, the people of her home Town of Amlwch have been raising funds and showing their support towards her.

One of those is her cousin Mia Elise Owen who spent the whole of the Easter holidays hand making “Team Maisy” bracelets.

The eight-year-old, who attends Ysgol Gynradd Amlwch, has so far managed to raise a sum of £280 by selling them.

Mum Kylie Johnson, said: “We, as her parents, and the rest of the family are beyond proud of Mia for the time and effort she’s dedicated to this.

“She’s made over 150 individual bracelets so far and has a long list of more to make for other people too.”

The Town’s football club also raised money for Maisy by hosting a charity match on April 28, which raised £270.

On the same day, family and friends took to Snowdon for a climbing challenge set up by Maisy’s uncle, Paul Fitzmaurice.

Last weekend, a 24 hour pool marathon was held at The Kings Head pub, raising £700 pounds.

Maisy has undergone an operation at Alder Hey Hospital in Liverpool and her first round of chemotherapy was completed on April 27.

Her dad Tony said: "The people and the community in Amlwch is second to none and I'm proud to be an Amlwch lad.

"We would like to say a massive thank you to everyone for absolutely everything. We are overwhelmed by the support, generosity and love we have received over the past few weeks."
