Leila Lambe established 'Imogen's Dream' in memory of her late daughter earlier this year.
The mother of Dronfield girl, Imogen Ellis, who died of a rare form of cancer-at the age of just seventeen a year ago-has gone on to raise over £20,000.
Leila Lambe set up the 'Imogen's Dream' charity to help other children going through treatment - by paying to send them on much needed breaks and holidays.
She told Peak FM she's been overwhelmed by the support of the local community;
"People will say to me that I've been amazing and strong, but it's only because of 'Imogen's Dream' that I am this way.
"I knew what Imogen wanted us to do in her memory, and I will always do it-It's very hard without her, but she's my motivation.
"We're focusing on helping other families like ours, so they can have a break and get away from the struggles of living with cancer.
"It's important to make positive memories."
The charity will be holding a fundraising event at Dronfield Woodhouse Sports and Social Club from 8pm this Saturday.
