A fundraiser has been set up to help support a young girl in Wrexham after she was diagnosed with Leukaemia.

Seirian Richards has had a fundraiser set up by family friends in her name to help give the family “something to look forward to” following her diagnosis.

Seirian competes in taekwondo with the children of Amanda piney and Emma Capper, who have set up the fundraiser with a target of £5,000, which can be found here.

The seven-year-old has made it all the way to her red stripe belt in the sport with Ady Jones Taekwondo Academy, but now she is facing a big fight.


Seirian was diagnosed with Leukaemia after she was originally told by a doctor that she had a muscle virus following aching and muscle pains for a few weeks.

When she continued to feel poorly her mother, Amanda, took her back and had some blood tests, and within hours was blue-lighted to Alder Hey Hospital.

Within days of being transferred Seirian has already undergone many more tests and is about to start her long journey of treatment to fight the disease.

Seirian has been described as "an absolute ray of sunshine and a very driven little girl with a lot of Will Power" who has amazed everyone with her strength and determination saying the “Taekwondo Chemo Ninjas are going to defeat the Leukemians.”

Amanda and Emma have said that they want Seirian to have something to look forward to when she has beaten the disease and ease any financial burden on her parents Amanda and Chris Richards.
