First family to Visit Sara’s Retreat. 
Visited Tuesday, June 14, 2011 to Tuesday, June 21, 2011


Laura was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia on 10 April 2008 at the age of 16, just before her GCSE’s. Laura didn’t respond well to treatment and had very bad reactions which resulted in her ending up in a wheelchair due to nerve pain and loss of mobility.

The family had an amazing time out there, thank you to everyone in Crete who gave them such a warm welcome.

Laura’s mum Anne had this message to our supporters:

Thank you to Saras Hope Foundation and to all you fabulous people who are busy fundraising. My daughter Laura and I have just landed back in grey wet England after the most wonderful week staying at Saras Retreat in Crete. This is the most amazing thing for families like ours and was made all the more special because of Julie and Ged and their lovely family, Mark and Crazy Fayzey. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts your efforts are truly being appreciated xx
