Merry Christmas

Ellie and the family had a fantastic Christmas this year.
Santa was very generous to Ellie this year. She got lots of Moshi Monster things, a digital camera, Harumicka, a portable DVD player and a number of DVDs.

Ellie received many Christmas cards and presents from many different parts of the world, there are to many to single out so we would like to thank everybody that took the time to send Ellie a card or a present.

Ellie is in great form at the moment and is feeling very well. She is spending her days and evenings colouring her Moshi Monster colouring book.

The Dixon family would like to wish all our friends and family a Healthy and Happy New Year.

We will return to you in 2013 and leave you with some recent photos of Ellie.

Getting ready for Christmas

Hi all, its December 7th and Ellie cannot wait for Christmas.
Still over two weeks to go but that Christmas feeling is in Crumlin Hospital and its lifting the sick childrens spirits. This weekend will be very busy for Ellie, on Saturday she is taking to the skies from Dublin airport along with dad and other children that attend Crumlin Hospital. I reckon the man in the big red suit will also be on the plane giving presents to the children. Should be great fun.

Then on Sunday she has the St. Johns Ward Christmas party, lots of celebs, pressies, fun and games.
This is with thanks to the wonderful staff on the ward. Not only do they work very hard while in the hospital looking after sick children, they give up their own time to prepare this event and ensure that every child in attendance enjoys the party this Sunday.

Chemo: Ellie is in the middle of chemo treatment at the moment but will have the Christmas and New Year Holidays free of chemotherapy. That certainly is good news and something to be thankful for.

We will post a few photos over the Christmas.
