a lot of our wishes it was the community
nurses that nominated Hannah to us. We spoke to her Mum and
to sort out a wish list, which she did. The list consisted of
camera, a laptop computer, back stage passes to see Westlife, tools for
(Hannah’s brother), a gas bar-b-que and a three-piece suite or a CD
We all had a look at the list and thought Phillip’s tools were most probably special ones that only he could get, Westlife tickets were a bit beyond us and a new three piece suite had to be a personal choice, but we could afford and get the camera, the laptop and a CD clock radio. So we did.
Ashley and I (Chris) took the wish into the family where we were greeted with a coffee and an introduction to Hannah and her Auntie. We gave them the wishes, and it doesn’t matter how many times we grant wishes, to me the look on the families faces was worth millions of pounds! On the way home Ashley and I said the hell that these families go through really puts our moans and groans into perspective.
Below is a letter from Hannah.
Hello my name is
I am 12 years old and in November 2005 I found a lump in my neck. The DGH took a bi-opsy which was diagnosed as Hodgkins Disease (a form of cancer). I have undergone intensive chemotheraphy at the Royal Marsden Hospital in Sutton for three months and also had shared care with the Eastbourne D.G.H. for blood tests, etc.
I am pleased to say that after having my treatment, which was very intensive, my tumour has gone. My CAT scan and PET scans were all negative. I feel very lucky and am grateful to everyone concerned.
Hannah and her mum
