Leanne meets galaxy of stars including Pluto
SIXTEEN-YEAR-OLD Leanne Murphy of Rathdrum is having the time of her life over in Disneyland in America rubbing shoulders with Micky Mouse, Donald Duck, Pluto and the rest.
Leanne was one of eight children honoured for their extraordinary courage at this year’s National Children of Courage Awards and Share a Dream Ball. She was whisked off to Disneyland with her families for a special trip just before Christmas.
Leanne was diagnosed at a young age with a malignant bone tumour. Treatment involved a period of chemotherapy and this was followed by surgery to remove the tumour.
Despite her ordeal, Leanne remained upbeat, even sitting and doing well in her Junior Certificate.
