Our story of survival is inspiring other kids
Our daughters Indy, four, and Evie, five, met a couple of months into their stay at Royal Children’s Hospital in Melbourne after they were both diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia at the age of two.
The girls got along straight away. They have this indescribable bond. They have tackled some really difficult times together, so it’s beautiful to see them come out the other side smiling.
Evie and Indy speak in American accents when they play because they spent time in their hospital rooms isolated and alone watching Youtube or American movies. They both have so much character.
We have become really good friends too. There is this indescribable bond, which is different to every other friendship.
