Eight-year-old Ashleigh was just 13 months old when she was diagnosed with a type of kidney disease called focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS). She has a particularly rare form of the condition she inherited from her father Lee. Lee had to have a liver transplant when he was ten years old and Ashleigh will also have to undergo the procedure in the future.
Ashleigh’s favourite pastime is dressing up as the Disney princesses and when she was referred to Starlight for a wish she said “My wish is to go to Disneyland Paris because I just love how pretty the princess dresses are. My favourite princess is Cinderella because I have got the DVD and it makes me want to go to Disneyland!”
With her Minnie Mouse ears, Ashleigh looked every bit the Disney princess and she and her parents had a wonderful time getting to meet all their favourite characters. Ashleigh had cuddles from Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Pluto and Donald Duck, and even got to meet the Disney princesses, which was a dream come true for her! To read the full story, click here.
