Our beautiful, gorgeous little girl, Anna, has leukaemia. She was diagnosed on Monday 5 December 2011.

Anna’s new snapdragon

We’ve reached our total of £21,477!!!

Thank you so much to everyone. We’ve raised an incredible amount of money in an unbelievably short time.

And it means Anna has her snapdragon wheelchair!

We’ve been in Cambridge this weekend collecting Anna’s loan chair. This is for her to use until her own one is built.

A combination of steroids,the long journey, remains of a fractured femur and lots of new people meant Anna wasn’t really at her best for a large part of the day. However she finally started to enjoy herself in her new chair, especially once she realised she could give her brother and cousins a ride on the back. .

On Saturday we tested it out by getting the bus into Cambridge, going out for lunch and then some shopping. Anna is already fantastic at going forward. Reversing is still a little bit more difficult but people were both impressed at her control and understanding about her running over their feet.

And just now, we are in an AA pick up truck being driven home. We finally broke down 4 hours after leaving Cambridge, having only made it 100 miles. It’s going to be a long night.

Anna was discharged yesterday. She is still not 100% but it’s better to have her at home. Thank you for all your prayers, help and support.

As usual, Nathan gets the best smiles from Anna!
