We hope this finds you well and that you have had a great year. It’s been a lovely year for us – Poppy’s started high school, Lily’s started primary school & Ella’s running around everywhere!
Poppy continues to do well – her tumour grew a tiny amount in February, but her last 3 MRIs have thankfully been stable.
Poppy has a role as an orphan in her school production of ‘Annie’ in February. Lily took part in her first dancing competition & came 2nd out of 14, despite being the youngest dancer! Ella is learning new words every day – she’s 17-months-old already – time just flies!
Bri is enjoying working as a general manager for JTF, especially as it is only ½ mile from our house! I returned from maternity leave to be moved to Year 6 after 19 years of teaching infants!!! Surprisingly I love it!!!
Although we have taken a step back from our fundraising, thanks to our ball in March & the incredible support we receive from others, our total raised for BCH has now passed the £220,000 mark! We were also given a special award from the hospital & were runners up in ‘The Pride of Birmingham’ awards. We feel truly blessed that Poppy is doing so very well.
We hope you have a lovely Christmas & a very happy 2015.
With love, Lisa, Brian, Poppy, Lily & Ella xxx
