JLS boys sing only for Jess

Jessica met her pop heroes JLS after being granted a wish by Have a Heart and Starlight.

Twelve year old Jessica, who has relapsed with leukaemia, chatted and had photos with the double Brit award winning group, before watching them perform at the Colston Hall in Bristol.  

Jessica was originally given a ticket to the gig by family friend Deborah Lamb, who contacted Heart and Starlight to see if they could help grant Jessica’s wish to meet the boys.  With JLS’s help, Jessica’s whole family were able to go to the concert and to experience the buzz of backstage.

Jessica was initially diagnosed with an aggressive form of leukaemia two years ago, and had to undergo intensive treatment at Bristol Children’s Hospital which meant that she and her parents had to spend much of the year there.  Initially, it seemed that the gruelling treatment had worked.
