Do you know a Little Star? Cancer Research UK's Little Star Awards

Cancer Research UK's Little Star Awards, in partnership with TK Maxx, celebrate the courage of children who have been diagnosed with cancer. Nominations for this year have now closed, but will reopen in November 2009. The 2008/9 awards were supported by celebrities David Tennant, Leona Lewis, Cesc Fabregas, Gael Clichy, Zoe Salmon, George Sampson and Lewis Hamilton. The 23 Little Stars and their families, who came together as 'ambassadors' to represent the 300 children who received Little Star Awards in 2008/9, were entertained by wonderful performances from Same Difference and Gareth Oliver, from Britain's Got Talent. They also got the chance to meet BBC presenters Angelica Bell and Michael Underwood, Lil' Chris and the Big Brother twins Sam and Amanda. The party was organised to help raise awareness of children's cancers and the Cancer Research UK's groundbreaking work in the field of childhood cancer research. The Cancer Research UK Little Star Awards, in partnership with TK Maxx, are open to all under-17s who have cancer or have been treated for the disease in the last five years. Unlike other children's awards, there is no judging panel because Cancer Research UK and TK Maxx believe that every child who confronts cancer is extra special. The Little Star Awards will be opening for nominations once more in November 2009. For more information please call the Little Stars team on 0113 263 6495 or email
