Inspirational Ethan aiming high to buy hospital home
Brave Ethan Maull is refusing to let his cancer diagnosis stop his charity fundraising.
The youngster has been raising money for Cancer Research for three years.
He was inspired after family friend Jo Wiggins was diagnosed with breast cancer.
And now, the determined nine-year-old says he will carry on his work, despite being diagnosed with a rare form of children's bone cancer.

Ethan, who has already raised £4,000, was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma at Christmas time.
A regime of chemotherapy began in January 2013 at Nottingham Children's Hospital.
He has now turned his money-raising efforts to there.
The Torksey schoolboy wants to collect cash to help families of children affected by cancer.
He said: "I want the money we raise to buy wireless headphones and a tv at the end of every patient's bed.
"I also want to buy new toys and games for the children to keep entertained while they are in hospital."
Ethan and his mum have stayed in Billy's House – located close to the hospital and is a place where families can stay while their children are having prolonged treatment.
But spaces are limited and Ethan's goal is to fund another house for use by the patients and families of ward E39.
From his wish to help others, The Ethan Maull "Up Yours To Cancer" foundation was born and it is through this he hopes to raise money for the ward and to fund 'Ethan's House'.
Ethan's mum Sam said: "He's taken all of his treatment in his stride.
"The main thing that upset him was losing his gorgeous blonde curly locks.
"All the patients on the ward have beads of courage which they keep with them, every bead is different in shape, colour and size and signify a step in their treatment. I picked one for Ethan and I chose a green heart to signify I was giving him a piece of my own heart."
