MORE THAN 700 young people in recovery from cancer will showcase the artistic talents of a 16-year-old Scottish leukemia survivor during 2019 after she won a national Musto competition in partnership with the Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust. As the competition winner, Iona Sutherland’s design will be worn by everyone who goes sailing with the Trust in 2019.

Musto, invited every young person who sailed with the Trust last summer to sum up what the charity meant to them. Iona’s symbolic sketch of a yacht sailing against the backdrop of a blazing sunset captured how young people can embrace their future and re-engage with life after cancer.

Iona, from Kinross, underwent treatment for a rare acute undifferentiated leukemia at the Royal Hospital for Children, Glasgow in 2014-2015, and first sailed with the Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust in recovery from the charity’s Scottish base in Largs the following summer.
