THE mother of 21-year-old Sarah Fox who died from Leukaemia has thanked the East London Advertiser this week after the paper helped her find her daughter's friends for the first anniversary of her death.

Janet Fox celebrated her daughter's life at a special service at St Matthews's in Bethnal Green on Wednesday (March 5), two days before the first anniversary of her death.

She appealed to the Advertiser last week to help trace Sarah's friends so they could join her on the anniversary.

Janet subsequently heard from five friends who went to Bethnal Green's Morpeth Secondary School with Sarah and read about the memorial service.

Janet, 47, said: "It is brilliant that they found out about it."

Sarah, a singer who was described as 'a loveable person' was diagnosed with leukaemia in January last year, when she was only 21.

Janet stood by her daughter's side as Sarah, who studied at Barking College for four years, underwent two months of intense chemotherapy at Bart's Hospital in the City. But she died only two months later.
