Skye Duncan has had to learn to write again at the age of 13.

The teenager was diagnosed with bone cancer last summer and had her right arm amputated after chemotherapy failed to halt the disease.

Now cancer-free, the “inspirational” youngster, from Gartloch, Glasgow, has had to learn to use her left hand to put pen to paper as she begins to rebuild her life.

And now her first left-handed drawing has won a poster competition run by Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity.

Skye said: “I think it was the first time I really tried drawing with my left hand and it turned out better than I thought.

“My mum got the email saying that I’d won it. She was just ecstatic about it.”

Skye’s mother Ann, 48, added: “I was over the moon because she hadn’t drawn with her left hand. It was probably just the first picture she drew with her left so to win I just thought was amazing.

“It’s just another wee thing you’re ticking off - every day you’re ticking, she can still do that, she can still do this.

“She just finds a way of just getting back to her old life as best she can.”

Skye, now 14, developed pain in her arm while on holiday last year and visited hospital on returning home.

Within days, the teenager and her family were told she had cancer.

She underwent a seven hour operation to remove her arm at Glasgow’s Royal Hospital for Children last September and has now been declared cancer free following 10 months of chemotherapy.

Throughout her treatment, she continued to attend school at Eastbank Academy when she could and began writing again three weeks after her surgery.

She also wrote an essay for her teachers on how it felt to be told she had beaten the disease.
