Little Joni-Mai Stevens of Hornchurch is battling Ewing’s Sarcoma, a rare form of the disease, for the second time in her life.

To raise money for potenitally life saving treatment, X-Factor stars Stacey Solomon and Stacy Francis, of the US version of the show, will perform at the special event called For the Love of Joni - A Charity Concert and Auction, which takes place on Friday at Bush Hall in London.

The auction will feature signed items by Tom Cruise, John Travolta and VIP tickets to see Robbie Williams and DJs will perform throughout the night.

Soul singer Stacy Francis, said: “I have known Joni-Mai’s family for 20 years, so this event is very close to my heart. I am proud that ‘Aunty Stacy’ can perform for the gorgeous Joni-Mai and support this amazing cause.”

Joni-Mai’s grandmother, Patricia Walsh, said: “Joni-Mai is our world, she has been through so much in her short life already. We hope this event will spread the word about Ewing’s Sarcoma and Joni-Mai’s story far and wide so that she is able to get the help she so desperately needs.”

Tickets are still available for the show on Friday, at a cost of £45 and can be purchased from www.bushhallmusic.co.uk.
