Grace Frazer . An amazing adventure at Saras Hope foundation Retreat in Crete
Grace Frazer aged 3 was diagnosed with a brain tumour, she underwent brain surgery twice at such a young age and endured multiple rounds of chemotherapy missing out on a normal childhood. Grace is a real water baby and her favourite days were spent at the beach, she has so much energy and it was wonderful watching her run around without a care in the world. Mum Fiona`s message in the guest book said it all
Harrison Mooney aged 9 had a great week at the Retreat in July 2017
Harrison Mooney aged 9 arrived with his family after completing a three year protocol for ALL .Harrison also has autism, ADHD and a learning disability. It was fabulous watching Harrison (Harry) having fun, smiling and really enjoying his week with his family. The highlight was an afternoon at Kournas Lake on a pedalo. Harry loved swimming in the Lake and his face beamed throughout.
Here are some extracts from Fiona`s message in the guest book
We have had a busy week and been to some fantastic places. Harrison`s favourite was definitely Lake Kornas. We have met some of your friends and love how much they support you and the charity. You are an amazing family who have accepted Harrison and his world without batting an eyelid and made us feel so comfortable. Autism and ADHD is difficult to deal with but you made it easy so easy.
Ruby aged 9 years spent most of her time in the pool when she visited the Retreat in July 2017
Ruby was diagnosed with Acute lymphoblastic leukemia in July 2013 and recently completed her 3 year treatment protocol. She has a sister Lucie and a brother Joseph who has autism. The family were due to fly out in 2015 when their father Chris suffered a brain hemorrhage which left him with severe mobility problems, slowly but surely through his determination and lots of physical work Chris can walk with assistance but requires 24hr care. Mum Samantha is amazing and is a full time carer for Chris as well as looking after her daughters and son. Samantha commented that they are looking forward to spending time together after everything they have been through.
