The parents of a teenager who won an award for her heroism have spoken of the pride they have for their daughter.

In February, 15 year old Jemima Gazley was diagnosed with stage four brain cancer, and past away in October.

Following the diagnoses she started a give-a-little page to help Australian researcher Doctor Matt Dun find a cure for the disease.

The Wellington teenager's now been named the Herald's 2021 'Our Heroes' award winner for her campaign - which raised nearly 700 thousand dollars.

Jemima's parents Oliver and Ray joined Nick Mills in the Newstalk ZB studio.
