An amazing story to come from A level Results Day!

This is the heart-warming moment a student who battled cancer found out she got two A*s and an A in her A levels.

Shannon Thompson, 19, from Formby was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma in 2015 and received the all-clear earlier this year.


Her struggle against the disease didn’t stop her from being offered a place at Edinburgh University to study Chemistry.

Shannon said: “I can’t believe it, I am so happy. I wouldn’t have got here without the amazing support of the UTC and my family right the way through my diagnosis. I honestly couldn’t have asked for more. I am now going on and will hopefully work in Cancer research one day, which my dream.”

Well Done Shannon, we are extremely proud of you!
