Meet a super mum
Lucy from Victoria knows the lasting impact wishes have on wish kids and their families.
As a busy working mum of four girls, her world was turned upside down when her daughter Lily was diagnosed with leukaemia.
Lily’s wish to travel to Broome gave the family some much needed time together and filled them with hope for the future.
Lily was 2 years old when she was diagnosed with Pre B Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia. Before the diagnosis she was a healthy vibrant child with a heart of gold and never did anything other than smile and laugh. To see your child fall ill and within a week deteriorate from a child who was running and climbing to a child who couldn’t walk was devastating.
Lily chose to travel to Broome and have a camel ride on the beach.
When Lily received her wish pack in the mail to say she was eligible for a wish, it was the best day for her. She had no idea she would be allowed to have a wish – one that she could choose herself.
Lily’s wish was the first time our family had spent a week together in nearly two years.
The wish not only improved Lily’s mental health, it also improved the whole family’s. We spent the week laughing, bonding and spending time together.
It filled our family with hope for the future and took us out of our “childhood cancer family” bubble. It gave us time and allowed us to remember there is a big world out there we can explore together, one little step at a time.
The day will be filled with family time and lots of laughs! Most likely, I'll be waking up to breakfast made by the kids. Then we'll spend the morning together as a family taking our puppy Louis for a walk and heading to a park.
