Five-year-old Emily was diagnosed with a Wilms’ tumour in May 2016 and underwent chemotherapy and surgery to have part of her kidney removed.
Emily loves playing with her little sister, Ivy-Mae and adores all things Disney. Her favourite film of all is Aladdin and she loves to sing along and dance to all her favourite songs.
Starlight granted Emily’s wish to see Aladdin the musical on the West End and to stay in a hotel with her family!
From the moment they arrived at The Prince Edward Theatre, they were made to feel like VIPs. The family were escorted to their seats and Emily could hardly contain her excitement when the theatre lights died down. From start to finish, Emily and her sister were enthralled.
Once the curtains closed, they were escorted to the Julie Andrews Room where the girls received goodybags and were met, to Emily’s sheer delight, by the cast!
Emily’s mum, Kerry said, “Emily squealed with excitement when she met Jasmine! She was utterly star struck but all the cast were so friendly and made the girls feel so special! It was magical seeing them both so happy – we really did forget our worries for the day! Thank you Starlight for making all of Emily’s dreams come true!”
