Elizabeth has a ball with Billy Bear at Butlins

Elizabeth with Billy Bear

Elizabeth with Billy BearFour-year-old Elizabeth from Manchester has been suffering from acute lymphoblastic leukaemia since August 2012.  She has been very brave and although she has found the lack of independence very frustrating, she has coped exceptionally well with her condition and the gruelling treatment she has had to undergo.

Elizabeth decided that her dream would be to spend Christmas with her favourite character, Billy Bear, at his home, Butlins! Starlight organised the trip, which was a very special treat after everything that she and her family have been through. The highlight for Elizabeth was getting to have lots of cuddles from Billy Bear himself! To read the full story, click here.
