Naomi first became involved with the charity in 2012 when her daughter Anya was diagnosed with stage 4 high-risk neuroblastoma.Naomi Bentham

After Anya needed second line chemotherapy to clear the disease from her body prior to stem cell transplant, it became clear that they may need to access treatment outside the NHS and the UK to give Anya the best chance of survival. Along with an incredible core team of fundraisers, Naomi and her family raised over £250,000. Without support from Solving Kids Cancer, this would not have been possible.

After successfully completing frontline treatment they enrolled Anya into the DFMO trial in Michigan in 2014 with support from their home hospital, Alder Hey, to help to prevent relapse. Anya was the first child from the UK to enter and complete this trial. Naomi has continued to raise awareness of the incredible work that Solving Kids' Cancer does through television and press interviews, social media, and word of mouth.

Naomi has a background in Marketing and Communications and currently manages small businesses social media accounts through her role as a virtual personal assistant. Her life is devoted to having adventures with her husband Graeme, the incredible Anya, their youngest, Noah, and their two dogs, Jack and Louis.
