Hannah Roddy

An Irish children’s cancer charity has released a video of 14-year-old supporter Hannah Roddy singing a beautiful rendition of ‘O Holy Night’ to help raise funds.

Jimmy Norman started the charity, Aoibheann's Pink Tie (APT), five years ago following the death of his daughter Aoibheann. 

"When she died, I asked all the men in the church to wear pink ties... when I was coming down the aisle behind her coffin, I was very moved to see all the pink ties,” he told the Irish Independent. 

The organization offers financial assistance to parents of children diagnosed with cancer as well as a number of other initiatives, such as the “chemo duck,” to provide the children with a better quality of life.

"The chemo duck has his own Hickman line. It's transference – when they get their treatment, the duck gets it too. It's amazing how much more at ease the children then are,” Norman explained. 

APT is currently working on a "dream with Aoibheann" pillow which will allow children to listen to their mp3 player or call their parents through their pillow. 

"Some children are too weak to lift themselves up so this will allow them to talk to their parents lying on their pillow."
