A LITTLE girl from Chipping Norton who is battling cancer has had the chance to meet her favourite pop star.

Anna Drysdale, seven, recently went backstage at The Voice UK and met Olly Murs - a judge on the show and Rays of Sunshine children’s charity ambassador.

Anna is currently living with relapsed Osteosarcoma, a type of cancer that affects the bones. Due to her condition, Anna must undergo intensive chemotherapy on a regular basis and has previously had surgeries to remove a tumour and her humerus bone.

In June 2018, Rays of Sunshine granted Anna’s greatest wish to go to Disney World in Florida with her family, including mum Keeley, dad Ian and sisters Ellen and Sarah. After learning Anna was a big Olly Murs fan, the charity then organised for the family to go backstage at the ITV reality show, with a meet and greet that also gave them the chance to meet fellow judges, Jennifer Hudson, Will.i.am and Sir Tom Jones.

Anna enjoyed having pictures with the judges at the Elstree Studios in London event, before watching a live recording of the show.

Anna’s mum Keeley said: “Thank you Rays of Sunshine, The Voice UK, Olly Murs, Jennifer Hudson, Will.i.am and Sir Tom Jones for taking time to meet our daughter and making her wishes come true.

“You really do change lives, taking the focus away from chemo and radiotherapy and giving us huge joy and precious memories.

“It was a truly amazing experience for our whole family.”

And Sir Tom Jones later shared a picture of him with Anna on his Instagram account following the event that said: “It was a pleasure to meet the children of @raysofsunshinecc at the weekend, helping to grant their wish of coming along to @thevoiceuk.

“A brilliant charity, doing fantastic things.”

The charity was formed in 2003 to brighten the lives of seriously ill young people and their families across the UK by granting wishes and providing ongoing support in hospital.
