YOU (South Africa) - - SAY -

My daugh­ter Ava-Mae (8) came across your ar­ti­cle on Beandri Booy­sen, the South African girl with proge­ria (YOU, 22 June). She’s just started read­ing but man­aged to make her way through the ar­ti­cle, with some help from mom and dad. She then pro­ceeded to ask us ques­tions that we did our best to an­swer.

Ava-Mae was so moved and in­spired by Beandri’s story that she made her a card which she sent to Beandri and which I in­clude here. It was so lovely to get a re­sponse from her mom, Bea. MICHELLE BEN­NETT, EMAIL
