Lily – Visited Tuesday, July 26, 2011 to Tuesday, August 2, 2011

Lily is 7 she was diagnosed on 9th August 2007 when she was 3, she has a twin sister Willow and younger sister Poppy 3. She had an 8 hour operation on 10th August 2007. She went through Chemotherapy and Radiotherapy. She will be deemed cured in August 2012. The surgery has left her with short term memory loss and balance/co-ordination issues. Mum Shirley and Dad Glyn enjoyed their experience at Sara’s Retreat and have become warm supporters of the charity, joining us at Sara’s Walk of Hope and family fun day on 14th August.

On returning to the UK, they have raised the awareness of the charity by contacting their local newspaper and having an article wrote on their experience at Sara’s Retreat. Shirley had this to say:

Ged and Julie are totally brilliant and in such a short space of time have made friends and contacts throughout Crete, with local families and organisations offering a variety of events, meals and more to the families all free of charge. We ate free, went on an organised tour of Chania with a wonderful guide who showed us the sights, went to a Greek night, on a boat trip and more, the girls even had a drawing done of them, all free of charge.
