Having the chance to be myself again
When Laurel was diagnosed with Leukaemia, her life completely changed but she was determined to get her life back on track. With the help of Willow organising a trip to Edinburgh and the support from those closest to her, Laurel was able to move on and celebrate the end of a tough year.
“After I graduated from university, I got a job as an interior designer and I was constantly busy, both socially and with work. But after I was diagnosed with Leukaemia in 2014, my health deteriorated rapidly.
My treatment was 5 months in total. At this point, my life changed, but not forever.
It was my social worker who told me about Willow. Applying to Willow gave me the opportunity to show the people who supported me throughout my treatment how important they are to me.
