I am 13 years old and like many other moody teenagers my phone has become a part of me. The thought of living without it honestly makes me feel sick and thinking about a week without social media brings a tear to my eye. Giving up my phone might possibly be the hardest thing I have ever done.

My Aunt was only in her mid 30s when she fell ill with kidney cancer and after just eight months passed away. Fundraising in her memory means a lot to me because I want to do something to help raise money for a charity that helped her and that offers ongoing support and research.

Phone Ban!!!

I will be giving up my precious baby, otherwise known as my phone for a week. I have chosen to do this because she would have found it hilarious that I'm giving up my phone and would have known my struggle in doing this.
