As reported, the 19-year-old has been diagnosed with terminal cancer and is planning her dream wedding to her childhood sweetheart John Daniells this summer.

Jasmine, from Havant, is organising a walk through the streets of Portsmouth to help Natalie raise money for a family holiday to Disneyland Paris.

She said: ‘I found out about it online. Natalie is 19-years-old and she has cancer. It’s horrible. She doesn’t deserve this.

‘If we can make something better for her before she dies then let’s do it.’

Jasmine is getting t-shirts made for people to wear on the walk as well as wrist bands and hoodies.

Natalie, from St Augustine Road in Southsea, said she was very touched to hear a stranger wanted to help her out.

‘It’s lovely. I was really surprised. It’s nice to know that people are so supportive,’ she said.

‘There are so many people that want to do this walk. I am going to come along to the finish line.’

It’s the second time Jasmine has organised a fundraising walk, after offering to help Lucy Maidens to buy a headstone for her stillborn son last year.

The walk will take place on Saturday, May 28 at 10.30am at Southsea Common, finishing at The Harvest Home in Copnor.
