Lady Lavender shares her joy: her "Princess of the House" had a liver transplant when she was 4.5 years old, and now five years later she stands "as a proud mum of a 10-year girl who battled other normal kids to take 1st place in the 100m and 200m sprints among Year 5 girls in her school. This, for me, is a pretty fine endorsement that she is 'normal'."
But I meant it when I said she really wants to share her joy. She wants another family to feel as she does, and for another kid to feel like her Princess. A youngster called David Poa. A "sweet, cheeky, mischievous boy who is also funny, charming and endearing," who really, really, really needs an intestinal transplant – which is not available in NZ. He needs to get this transplant done in the US. He has been accepted by specialists in Omaha-Nebraska for an assessment, and likely wait-list for a transplant.
