11yr old Ruairi Kiernan from Naas, Co. Kildare was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in March 2015 when he was just 10yrs old.
Ruairi absolutely loves comic books and drawing sketches for his books.
Ruairi is a huge fan of Irish Author and Screenwriter Derek Landy who is best known for the Skulduggery Pleasant series of young adult's books.
So, when Ruairi’s mum Claudine contacted Share a Dream to see if they could make Ruairi’s dream a reality to meet Derek and get some writing tips and advice and even get some of his sketches made into a real comic book they got to work.
Last Thursday the 18th of February Ruairi met his hero Derek Landy in the Crowne Plaza hotel in Blanchardstown at 1pm.
Ruairi spent an hour chatting to the author getting some advice about his own comic book Ruari is writing as well as talk about the Skulduggery series books that Ruairi loves.
