Leah was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia when she was only four and a half and such a happy little girl, looking forward to starting big school that year but it wasn't to be. It’s a day her mum will never forget as her whole world fell apart as her little girl was diagnosed with cancer.
Leah started her Chemotherapy and her treatment lasted 3years. However, Leah also got Aspergillus in her left lung she was really ill for some weeks she couldn't eat or walk. Leah went downhill very quickly eventually ending up on a life support in Intensive care.
Once out of intensive care Leah then had to have a left lobectomy done, which she had to go back into intensive care after. After having the left lung removed Leah's diaphragm didn't work so she had to have more surgery to remove a hernia and bring her organs back down from her chest.
Leah is currently in remission and doing well. So, when her mum Geraldine wrote to Share a Dream to realise her one dream of meeting her idols JLS they immediately got to work.
Big thanks to JLS and all the Rose Festival Team for making this dream a reality for Leah.
