The summer is coming to an end…

Hello all,  Thank you for checking in XXX

Mia is still doing fabulously, since I last wrote there has been another camping trip, swimming, scooting, many more beach days and lots of catch ups with friends and family.  Mia has just finished her 5 days of steroids for this month and it was ok… a few dramas but nothing too bad, she definitely feels weak after he vincristine which she has once a month followed by the 5 days of steroid.  She was complaining of leg pains and was very easily defeated by any physical challenges for a few days, but almost as soon as her steroids stop she picks up again and her feisty determination returns.

I cannot believe the summer is nearly over!!!  Harvey goes back to school on Thursday and lots of Mia’s good friends who have already turned 4 will be going to school this year, Mia doesn’t mind that she is staying at nursery (because she loves it) but she will miss her friends that are going to big school!

We have the Bestival coming up in a couple of weeks which we are all looking forward to and we Will also be celebrating Mia’s first anniversary of her treatment, she is a much stronger little girl than she was this time last year and she has shown such courage and bravery in this last year.  However the most important upcoming date will be Mia’s 4th birthday on September 16th……  I must get organised!!  She didn’t have the best of birthdays last year so is definitely expecting a party!

I will update this post with pictures in the next day or so but meanwhile thanks again for all the support XXXx

    Thanks Shelly! Good to get an update – can’t seem to catch each other this week, can we?

    Guess what? Auntie Gemma is coming to Bestival!!! I can’t wait to see you all and I am so glad not to be missing it.
    I’m sure you would have missed me if I wasn’t there, right?

    Big hugs to Harv and Miss Mia Stillwell – Better get practising your moves ready for the weekend!

    Dear Stillwell Family!Dear MIA!

    It was a privilege and pleasure to visit your home today..
    bearing a few gifts..selected with Love that put such lovely smiles on Mia`s beautiful face.It was truly wonderful to see her looking so well.What an amazing inspiring brave little big girl.
    Our charity will stay in touch with you and will continue to offer our support..please ask..if you need our help.
    Today was one of those days..that showed me,a volunteer/trustee and grants coordinator for Cancer Care Unlimited (inc Caring Cancer trust)..WHY I am working for this a volunteer,why I get tired..stressed out and exhausted.To see MIA SMILE..was reason enough.
    THANK YOU for being an inspiration,Mia!Have a FANTASTIC party on Sunday.
    We are sending you all our VERY best wishes!
