Paying tribute to Jenna, her younger brother Liam described her as “bubbly” and said she was “always smiling”.

“Jenna always made sure everyone else was okay before herself,” he added.

“There wasn’t a time of day that she wasn’t smiling. We were very close and did everything together.”

Liam, 17, said his sister dreamed of becoming a teacher when she was eight.

After graduating from Turton High School, Jenna began studying to become a teacher at Edge Hill University.

But in her sophomore year, she noticed a lump on her shoulder.

“She came home one day and called me,” Liam explained.

“She said I have a small lump on my shoulder and I told her it doesn’t look too bad but to get it checked out.

“She went to the doctor and they said, ‘It’s nothing to worry about, we think it’s a cyst’.

“It kept growing, so she went back. After a few more tests we found out it was something worse.”

Jenna was diagnosed with Ewing’s sarcoma in July last year.

The devastating news came just months after Jenna and Liam’s father Manish went into remission following a battle with brain cancer.

While loved ones feared the worst, Liam said Jenna has maintained a positive attitude.

He said: “She just wanted to go ahead and fix it.

“That was just Jenna. She just wanted to make sure everyone around her is happy.”

After her diagnosis, Jenna received chemotherapy and entered a clinical trial, but the treatment eventually stopped working and the cancer spread to her lungs.
