Children In Need: 'Living with the loss of my sister'

Six years ago Lizzy Power's world was shattered when her sister lost her life to a rare disease at the age of 14.

She was 11 when her older sister Eleanor lost her battle with Wegener's granulomatosis in 2007.

Lizzy was helped through her grief by Cruse Bereavement, a charity which is part-funded by Children In Need.

"I was really vulnerable at the time and I had lots of emotions inside me. The support I received was a massive help," she said.
