Four year old Taylor rose Russell from Newcastle West was born with a life limiting condition called occipital mylengaencophecele and a severe type of Spina Bifida and is the only case in Ireland with the illness.
After Taylor’s mum contacted Share a Dream to do something special for her, Taylor Rose became the VIP at the Annual Jeff Power Memorial Tournament. At 12 noon a fancy car collected Taylor her mum Mary and aunt and nephew at their home and whisked them into Portland Park, the home of Summerville Rovers as the VIP at the event.
Taylor arrived to be the grounds to cheers of applause where she was met by Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Woody and even a Minion who all put on a very special show for her. Taylor was presented with lots of gifts, then got her face painted and later enjoyed some delicious tea and cakes at the event.
After a hectic day it was time for a bite to eat so off Taylor headed to Sinatras for a delicious dinner before being collected in her fancy car and brought home.
Taylor’s mum Mary said “I can’t thank Share a Dream and everyone at Jeff Power so much for an amazing day that was very special for my little girl Taylor.”
