Leo's wish

Lilah became sick at just 2 years old and as she got progressively weaker, her mum just knew something was wrong. After extensive doctor’s visits and tests, she was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia at three years old. 

Lilah’s mum Amelia says when the Make-A-Wish volunteers asked Lilah what she wished for, there was one obvious answer. Amelia believes her wish to fly with real wings came from being stuck at home and in hospital and that to her, flying meant freedom.

When the big day arrived for Lilah to learn to fly, she very quickly warmed to her fairy teachers who taught her all the basics – such as flying, trapezing, swinging and using silks! Made even more complete with a special fairy bracelet and certificate of achievement that Lilah will always remember her fairy training by.

According to her mum, Lilah continues to talk about her wish every day and that the experience, “has the magic back into my life as well as hers, and that’s something I believe she will carry through the rest of her life.

Will you help more children, just like Lilah?
