One year ago today - Aria MacDonald

One year ago today

Hamish and I have spent pretty much no time reflecting on what was going on this time last year. Instead we have centred our thoughts on how far Aria has come and all the wonderful things that have brought us to this point.

It was one year ago today that we received the news of Aria’s diagnosis. On that day, as you will know, it appeared that there was no hope for Aria. This was a moment of profound devastation, best remembered but not dwelt upon.

One year on, there is much hope. She is healthy and well. With a great liver and still with her first central line! Amazing, totally amazing.

Sure, it has been challenging and will continue to be.

Thanks again to all the people that have enriched our lives. People that I would not of have the pleasure of being inspired by should we not of been sent on this journey. Two special people Jodee and Sam, mums whom I am honoured to know.

Thanks to Aria’s medical team, who really are tops. Such care and attention they show to our daughter and they all have a pretty good sense of humour. Very important, you know!!!

Thanks to all our amazing and generous supporters! So many people do so many wonderful things for us. Special thanks to Dan our web guru and Fleur our PR guru! Thank you to everyone, you keep our spirits high and our hearts warm.

    My name is Kaley and I am the same age as Aria. Your story in the Courier touched the hearts of both my mum and I. We have donated towards your trip and hope everything goes well. Best wishes to you all. XXX
