Brave cancer survivor Sarah Dransfield has become a “film star”.
And she hopes the video supporting the work of the Laura Crane Youth Cancer Trust is just one way of helping others.
Sarah, 20, is determined that the disease which forced her to have a leg amputated will not stop her doing as much as she can to support charities.
She is already helping out one day a week with the Lindley-based charity and also works with the Teenage Cancer Trust and the Ellen McArthur Trust.
Now the video film has been released to mark the 20th anniversary of the Laura Crane trust, set up by the family of the former Greenhead College student.
It was filmed by Jane Moran, of design firm Frank & Alex.
Sarah, of Holmfirth was only 16 when she developed a pain in her right knee in January 2012.
After being prescribed painkillers by her GP, she began private physiotherapy sessions.
But after two months, her pain worsened, to the point where she could hardly stand.
“It was so painful,” recalls Sarah. “I remember having to ask people if I could sit down in bus shelters. It was agony.”
Eventually her physiotherapist sent her for a private MRI scan, which revealed she had bone cancer.
She said: “It was an awful feeling, I thought, ‘No, not me’.The first question I asked was if I was going to die.
“They said no but there was a risk I could lose my leg and that they would try to save it. It was such a shock for everyone.”
Sarah started chemotherapy in April 2012 and lost her hair and just three months after was told amputation of her right leg was the only option.
Sarah also had traces of cancer in her lungs, which increased her initial chemotherapy course from six months to a year.
In May 2013, she underwent another operation to open her ribcage to remove all signs of cancer.
She battled her way back to fitness and returned to complete her studies at Huddersfield New College, gaining three BTech awards.
Now she divides her time between helping the charities and working alongside her mum Hazel at her business, Marstons Chicken.
“I’m not really certain what I want as a career but working with the charities is helping and I’m able to give something back.
“I was delighted to volunteer for the film, which we did in a couple of hours and it was great fun. A lot of my friends from the cancer unit at Leeds General Infirmary got involved and feature in the film, and I hope it gives hope to others.
“Losing my leg meant there are things I could not do but I’m just determined to get on with it and give something back”.
