Video diary: Teenage ‘cancer warrior’ Kira Noble

Kira Noble was told her cancer was incurable - but her fight didn't stop there.

For the past five years, 16-year-old Kira Noble has seen more of the inside of a hospital than she has her school and home.

Diagnosed with the rare childhood cancer Neuroblastoma, the Edinburgh schoolgirl known as the ‘cancer warrior’ has relapsed multiple times having undergone gruelling treatments and surgeries.

After 20 rounds of chemotherapy, she was told in 2019 she was incurable.

But the fight didn’t end there.

She decided to try an experimental drug Lorlatinib, an ALK Inhibitor, and has now charted her progress in a video diary.
