Amelia’s first holiday to sunny Cornwall

When the Wish fairy visited Amelia, and asked what her very special wish would be, she said she would love to go on a beach holiday and play in the sand, as she had never been on holiday before, because she had always been poorly...

Amelia was diagnosed at the age of 2 with A.L.L and had to undergo a very intense chemotherapy course, monthly lumbar punctures and suffered from mucusitas, which is painful ulcers, thrush and cold sores around the mouth..  Amelia, also had 3 Hickman lines fitted and lost all her hair twice over the course of 24 months.. Thankfully Amelia had the most common type of A.L.L and following the medication protocol that the consultant’s prescribed meant that Amelia had an 85% cure and survival rate..

2 years later and Amelia in now on maintenance treatment and has also gained a beautiful little sister called Matilda…  When the Wish fairy visited Amelia, and asked what her very special wish would be, she said she would love to go on a beach holiday and play in the sand, as she had never been on holiday before, because she had always been poorly, and with a Hickman line inserted into her chest, meant that Amelia couldn’t go near any water either…

A few months later, and with a wave of the wand and sprinkle of magic, Amelia along with her little sister Matilda, mummy and daddy set off for a 2 week holiday to the Wish family villa in beautiful sunny Cornwall for their very first beach holiday together.
