Just a few weeks after she was born, Angela was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis, which is a life-shortening condition that affects the major organs of the body and particularly the lungs. To fight the illness, Angela requires physiotherapy and medication twice a day, which can be very boring for her as she loves being active.
Angela loves reading and she reads herself to sleep every night and most mornings can be found reading when she should be getting ready for school! Dame Jacqueline is Angela’s favourite author and the little girl told Starlight that it would be a dream come true to meet her.
Starlight organised for Angela to have a wonderful afternoon with Dame Jacqueline and glitzy London hotel The Savoy stepped in to make the meeting extra special! As Angela and her family chatted to the author, they enjoyed a delicious tea in The Savoy’s Royal Suite, complete with a cake that had been made and decorated to look like the cover of Lola Rose, which is Angela’s favourite Jacqueline Wilson book!
