Hundreds of rock fans are celebrating a brave Fakenham school girl’s passion for music and bravery in her battle against a rare disease.

The Rock 4 Jasmine music festival, named after nine-year-old Jasmine Lewis, is being staged for the second time today at Fakenham Town Football Club.

Jasmine was diagnosed with Juvenile Dermatomyositis (JDM) seven years ago.

She is one of only a handful of known sufferers of the disease in the UK.

Rock 4 Jasmine raises money for the paediatric rheumatology department of the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital, where she is treated.

Nine bands are due to perform and there are various children’s activities taking place.

People can still get tickets on the gate.

Funds raised at the festival will go towards research into finding a cure for JDM and Mr Lewis hopes the event will also raise awareness of the little-known disease to ensure other sufferers can receive early treatment.

Visit this website tomorrow for a photo gallery from Rock 4 Jasmine.
