12 years old Kellie Brennan from Gorey is unlike most 12 year old girls her age as she has been her mum Caroline’s carer for the past few years as unfortunately her mum has been battling ill health.
Kellie does everything for her Mum always with a smile and never complains and has had to forget her childhood and grow up very quickly to accept way more responsibility that no child her age should have to do.
Staff at Paddy Mc Auleys pharmacy, Gorey were so moved by this heart breaking story that they contacted Wexford man Shay Kinsella of the Share a Dream Foundation to ask if in anyway this wonderful young 12 year old could be recognised for her unbelievable love and support she gives her Mum.
Being from Camolin and touched by this wonderful little girls love for her mum we will give Kellie a very special day and treat her like a Princess. Mum Caroline said it would mean so much to both of them to just have one very special day away from all the heartache and pain they have both gone through together and her and her daughter having a wonderful girly day together. It would get them through some really tough times ahead with a beautiful memory of a very special day
So, on Saturday 18th October Caroline and Kellie arrived at Paddy Mc Auley Pharmacy where they were met by all the staff who first of all took Kellie and mum off to have her nails and make up. After having some sparkling Lemonade and champagne and receiving lots of beautiful gifts both mum and daughter headed off to have their hair done.
Jim of His & Hers hair salon immediately got to work on transforming Kellie’s hair while mum watched on.
Then it was time for shopping as they headed first of all to the Jewellers for some beautiful jewellery. Next for some clothes and Kellie was dressed from head to toe at 34th boutique. Then to Funages were she received a beautiful pair of Converse sneakers.
After a hectic day it was time for resting so Kellie & her mum were then collected by Pat of Claddagh Limos and along with Garda Escort brought to the beautiful Arklow Bay hotel, Wicklow. There they checked into their gorgeous suite and enjoyed a delicious dinner and later relaxing together for the evening to reminisce on a fantastic day together.k
