Holly’s pink Wendy House

Four-year-old Holly was diagnosed with a Wilms’ tumour, cancer of the kidneys, earlier this year and is currently having chemotherapy. While she’s undergoing treatment, Holly’s family have avoided taking her to crowded places as her immune system is very low.

Holly absolutely loves her playhouse! It has been a great way to keep her entertained when we haven’t been in hospital and she’s loved showing it off to her friends. It really is a once in a life time gift that means so much!
– Sarah, Holly’s mum

Instead, Holly has spent a lot of time playing with her baby brother Joshua in the garden. They love playing in their Wendy House but the one they have is over 20 years old so Holly wished for a brand new pink Wendy House that has an upstairs.
