A feel good story

I am so excited.

Below is a photo of another A-T child.
A-T is short for Ataxia Telangiectasia and is the same rare disease Amelia has.

Aaron lives in Newcastle, NSW, Australia.

He has a MASSIVE dream to meet Ellen DeGeneres.

Ellen arrives on our shores next month to host a series of shows for her program.

Brenda shared the photo below on Ellen's "official" page weeks ago.
It has been shared, liked and commented on tens of thousands of times.
The "trolls of the internet" even featured.

Yesterday the Newcastle Herald came to interview them.
Today, Aaron's mum Brenda, spoke on a local radio station highlighting Aaron's wish to meet Ellen.
(The overall exposure has created great awareness for Ataxia Telangiectasia).
The radio station, Newcastles NXFM, has now created a campaign asking people to make suggestions about how to get Ellen to Newcastle.
The suggestions are leaning towards local songwriters and musicians creating a song and then choregraph a "mass mob" video clip with Aaron in the middle.

Something that started so small is now becoming massive.

Do not be surprised if Ellen ends up going to Newcastle!!!!!

Go Brenda and Aaron.
(and the fact Ataxia Telangiectasia and BrAshA-T keep getting mentioned makes it EXTRA awesome to help in finding a cure).

If you believe......if you really truly believe......your wish CAN come true.
(especially when tens of thousands of people are helping you!!!)
