Avelynn is 6 years old and suffers from a serious heart condition, high blood pressure in her lungs, a liver disease, and hypertension as well as having a gastrostomy button for feeding.
Avelynn has spent a considerable amount of time in and out of hospital since she was born and Starlight has been a light in the dark for Avelynn and her family.
Avelynn loves visiting the Starlight Express Room, as it gives her a much needed distraction from the loneliness, stress and boredom of hospitalised life. She has also been to a number of Starlight Escapes including a visit to Circus Oz.
Avelynn's Starlight wish was for a playground to be built in her backyard. Her dream came true when Starlight gave Avelynn a once in a lifetime opportunity and built her very own forte, sandpit, swing set, trampoline and monkey bars.
"Starlight is a wonderful charity that has brought a lot of hope, laughter and fun into our lives. Not only through the Starlight Express Room and the Starlight Escapes we have been on, but also having Avelyn's wish granted. You have brought Avelynn's wish to real life and made it even better than she could have imagined, thank you Starlight," said Michelle, Avelynn’s Mum.
