Lucy received a very special gift from Love Quilts UK, these amazing ladies have created this beautiful quilt just for Lucy. They truly are kind and thoughtful and do all this for free, Lucy loves her new quilt so we want to say a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone at Love Quilts UK......
Lucy was born in May 2009 then at 9 months old she was diagnosed with Bi-Lattetral Retinablastoma. She was then treated with 6 sessions of chemotherapy which had the knock on effects of blood and platelet transfusions.
Also Lucy developed a severe food aversion where she wouldn't even attempt solid foods of any kind, she has been drinking Fortini's as her only source of food for years. Lucy is also completely blind as the cancer took her sight away from her, but this has never stopped her from smiling and fighting on through her life.
She has an incredible natural talent for playing the piano, which she has self taught herself simply from listening to pieces of music and playing them back. She is also pitch perfect which again I am told is very rare, if going through the cancer wasn't enough Lucy also developed CVS (Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome).
Again Lucy was in and out of hospital subjected to even more tests, needles drips which stresses her out. Lucy is now in remission and her CVS (Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome), has calmed down also but she still has regular EUA's (Examination Under Anesthetic). Lucy is an incredibly brave little girl who not only inspires me but also has never lost her smile.
