A teenage daughter of Nathan Carter fan Máire Jackman, who last week lost her life to cancer, has survived her own battle with the disease, the Sunday World has learned.

Orla Jackman (19), has also raised over €100,000 for Crumlin’s Children Hospital with her family and their supporters, including rugby star Séan O’Brien.

Last week we revealed how country star Nathan made a visit to Máire and sang at her bedside just two days before she passed away.

Orla, from Crosslow in Tullow, Co. Carlow, was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia in February, 2010.
